Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Ni­cole Gré­goire

It cer­tainly is, es­pe­cially af­ter this week’s spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and events that took place in our school! Hooked on School Days are an oc­ca­sion to en­cour­age youth, con­grat­u­late them on their ef­forts, and lis­ten to them when it comes to their mo­ti­va­tion and their per­se­ver­ance. Th­ese days are also an ideal op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate bonds that will sup­port the suc­cess of our youth and young adults.

Many dif­fer­ent ways of cel­e­brat­ing our stu­dents’ ef­forts were or­ga­nized dur­ing this week. Each stu­dent re­ceived a post­card from their par­ents with a pos­i­tive mes­sage to en­cour­age him/ her to per­se­vere in school. Staff mem­bers also wore a white and green per­se­ver­ance rib­bon all week.

The main event of this spe­cial week was our as­sem­bly on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 17th. The Dic­tée P.G.L. cer­tifi­cates were pre­sented to the stu­dents who ex­celled in the fi­nal dic­tée and we an­nounced the name of the grade six stu­dent who will rep­re­sent our school in the re­gional fi­nals. Here are the names of our win­ners: Kinder­garten: Jay­den Levasseur, Grade 1: Lexa Bernard McKelvey, Grade 2: Lan­don Rediker, Grade 3: Emma Pi­card, Grade 4: Emma An­drews, Grade 5: Sa­man­tha Pi­geon, and Grade 6: Joshua Pi­card. Bravo to all the win­ners! Good luck at the re­gional fi­nals Joshua!

This year, three stu­dents who at­tend New Hori­zon (adult education cen­ter), Sophia Roy, Bran­don Sager and Khus­row Sar­wari gave a 10-minute talk to each cy­cle stu­dents about their ex­pe­ri­ences and de­ci­sions to re­turn to school. The stu­dents lis­tened at­ten­tively and asked them many ques­tions.

The par­ents’ con­tri­bu­tion in mak­ing this week spe­cial and mo­ti­vat­ing for their chil­dren was also very im­por­tant. They were asked to write a post­card to their child(ren) to en­cour­age them and con­grat­u­late them on their ef­forts given at school, and send a pic­ture of their child(ren). We also asked the chil­dren to draw what they wanted to be when they grow up. A bulletin board dis­plays their beau­ti­ful draw­ings and pic­tures at the en­trance of the school.

We thank all the par­ents and speak­ers for mak­ing the Hooked on School week a mean­ing­ful and in­spir­ing week for their child (ren)!
