Remembrance Assembly – Journey staff and students organized and participated in a moving and respectful assembly of remembrance. We honoured all our veterans, past and present, as well as our military members currently serving our country. Our band, drumline, choir, cadets, and student speakers and presenters were exceptional in their duties and performances. Special guest speakers, Veteran Mr. Ken Levert, and Pacheedaht Elder, Mr. Bill Jones both spoke passionately about the importance of why we take time to remember each year.

Thanks to Role Models Jo-Ina Young and Earl Claxton Jr. for coming to Journey. Elder Earl Claxton Jr. was in Mr. Quint’s grade 6 class and they went down to DeMamiel Creek and learned about the Salish Moons and Salmon teachings. Jo-Ina Young brought her teachings to the Indigenous Art exploratory and students learned how to make Medicine Bags.

Journey will be holding a Movember fundraiser to raise money for Men’s Health that will start at the end of November. This will be run by Division 11. In the meantime, participating some staff at Journey may look scruffier and scruffier over the next few weeks prepping to style their moustaches for the fundraiser in the last week of November.

Reminder about Student-Lead Conferences – November 20 4:30-7:30 p.m. in your child’s classroom. FAST teachers will also be available at different times throughout the evening. November 21 – early dismissal at 11:58 a.m.

Community News: Homestay West has asked us to pass on the following information. (Contact Ayla Seyedmortazavi, Manager, Homestay West.  aseyedmortazavi@mliesl.com or 778-229-2547. We are bringing a group of 118 Japanese International Highschool students to the Sooke/Langford area within Greater Victoria and we are in an urgent need of families who could host the students for 5 nights.  Students will be coming October 25 to 30th, and each requires his/her own homestay experience for 5 sleeps.  So, we are in urgent need of host families. Half of the group will attend Belmont Secondary School in Langford and the others will attend Edward Milne Community School in Sooke.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO FIND HOSTS FOR THE EDWARD MILNE SCHOOL GROUP OF 60: 

  • Families are paid an honorarium of $225 for hosting 1 student for 5 nights – October 25 – 30, 2019
  • Each host will be their “home away from home” for this special trip to Canada.
  • Families are encouraged to share their “typical daily life” and invite their Japanese students to join into simple family activities – walking the dog, grocery shopping, playing soccer in the back yard, attending hockey practises, watching the stars from the beach at night, making cookies, playing cards….and enjoying meals together. 
  • Families will be invited to join into a Welcome Ceremony at school on the arrival day as well as a Farewell Gathering on October 29th: The students from Japan will share some presentations, dances and songs in appreciation of their special days in our community.

We do greatly appreciate your help.  Journey Middle School will receive a $40 fundraiser for every family who is secured through this campaign from Today until October 10th.  We have a 2 week runway to find our families and raise some needed dollars for the school. 

PAC News:

Currently PAC has a Jerky Fundraiser happening. Your child should have brought home a form for this delicious fundraiser for our school. All proceeds go toward funding activities and/or purchasing items to enhance the learning opportunities for all students. Thank you for your support.  More forms are available in the office.

Thanksgiving Weekend begins afterschool today! We are thankful your family is part of our Journey Family.

 
 

Peanuts/Nuts – Journey has several students who have an severe allergy to nuts. Although it would be impossible to be able to claim we are completely nut free, we do ask that you are sensitive to the food you send in your child’s lunch/snacks. All classes that have students with this allergy have been notified by the classroom teacher. Your understanding is greatly appreciated.

Reminders:  Please remind your child not to use their phones between our morning and school leaving bell. Staff and parents have been reporting positive results and most students are finding it easier than they thought!

Also a reminder that taking pictures or videoing students is not permitted. This is especially important regarding altercations and then sharing with others. Students should not be subjected to further humiliation and we always report incidents to our Safer Schools Coordinator and we work closely with our local RCMP.

Terry Fox Run – Congratulations to all of our runners and walkers. Terry would be very proud. 

Overall Liv R., Cedar T., and Javin G.

Top Girls Liv R., Willow D., and Olive I.

Top Boys Cedar T., Javin G. and Kohen P.

Monday  

Today is Orange Shirt Day, a day to commemorate Residential School survivors and show every child matters.  Journey is marking Orange Shirt Day in several ways:

  • flying an orange flag, signed by staff and students
  • participating in Kindness Rocks, where students have written kind and welcoming messages on orange rocks that are placed around the school and community.
  • students and staff are invited to wear orange shirts
  • Aboriginal Education staff have visited 10 classes, sharing the message of Orange Shirt Day

Individual Photo Day – every student will have their photo taken and the option to purchase a variety of packages (these have gone home with students last week). Students will have the opportunity to change for their picture if they are wearing orange shirts.

All donations from the Terry Fox Run/Fox Fest Activities will be totalled today and announced. Students can hand in all donations into their classroom teacher.

Exploratories get posted on the wall in the foyer today. Some need waivers so get those handed in asap. If you haven’t signed up, please see Ms. Yarchuk immediately.
