EARL GREY's DIRECT DONATION DRIVE:

Recently students were given a letter to take home to parents outlining Earl Grey's Direct Donation Drive that is a fundraising initiative for this year (a copy of the letter and donation form can be found by clicking here).  The school needs to raise $10,000.00 to update and/or replace technology and for other needs described below.   We ask that our parents support Earl Grey in this fundraising initiative that takes place until April 30th. 

 Your donations will be used to address the following areas, with consultation from both parents and staff:

  • Purchase 45 Google Chromebooks and 1 Charging cart

  • Upgrade 30 classroom desktop computers

  • Purchase 5 mobile Elmo data projectors

  • Field trip bursaries for families in need

  • Props and costumes for the upcoming Earl Grey school musical

 

Please drop off any donation application and envelope to the Main Office.  We appreciate all the support from our wonderful Earl Grey School Community.






BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Looking for something fun and free to do to celebrate Black History Month? Head to Harbour Front, today to Sunday to enjoy dancing, drumming, storytelling, and delicious food. Just google "Kumba" (Koo-m-ba)

In 1995, Oakville's Donovan Bailey was the "Worlds fastest human" winning world competitions and the gold at the 1996 olympics. This record would later be shattered by Usaine Bolt from Jamaica. Celebrating our athletes for black history month.

Watch for a new heritage minute on Viola Davis Desmond who in 1946 refused to sit in the balcony where the black community was forced to sit and was arrested. In 2010 the government of Nova Scotia finally apologized.

The goal is to celebrate individuals and events throughout history that have an impact on the African and Caribbean community. Carter G Woodson began this celebration in schools knowing education was the key to change. Stay tuned for more facts.
