Announcements Week of December 13http://eas.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/213Announcements Week of December 13<h1>Friday, December 17</h1><p><br>All <strong>Eastview Football</strong> players planning to order team jackets must have their order forms in to Mr. Fontaine by today please! Payment can be made through schoolcashonline but the order forms MUST be submitted directly to Mr. Fontaine.<br><br>Any <strong>Eastview Junior or Senior Football</strong> players who DID NOT receive a team picture can pick one up from Mr Fontaine in the library TODAY.<br><br>It’s <strong>Fruit Friday</strong>, Wildcats!!  Stocking Stuffer fruit bars were already distributed on Wednesday, but we will be circulating in the café today with Gotcha ballots for students who have brought fruit for lunch.  As this is our final Fruit Friday of 2021, we also have 3 New Year-and-fruit-themed trivia questions and the first Wildcat to come down to Guidance with the correct answer to any of the questions can select a prize:  <br><em>Question #1:</em>  The New Year’s Eve dinner table in WHICH COUNTRY is typically laid out with 12 spherical fruits, one for each month of the year.  Round shapes here are thought to attract prosperity and abundance because they resemble gold and silver coins.  Apples, oranges, plums and peaches are favoured, while thorny fruits like pineapple and jackfruit are avoided as the spikes symbolize obstacles.  People in this country may also wear polka-dotted clothing on December 31st as part of this symbolic homage to circular shapes.<br><em>Question #2:</em>  In lieu of a traditional champagne toast, WHICH COUNTRY was the first to see 12 grapes eaten at the stroke of midnight on December 31st to ensure good luck for the 12 months ahead? Legend has it this tradition started in the late 1800s as a way for wine growers to use up their excess crop.  <br>Question #3:  The Jewish new year, Rosh Hashanah, takes place during the seventh month of the Hebrew calendar, which is typically September or October.  More subdued than other celebrations, it’s a time of repentance and contemplation.  One special ritual is the blowing of the shofar, a trumpet made from the horn of a ram.  During Rosh Hashanah, it’s tradition to eat round challah, a loaf of braided bread, together with WHICH FRUIT, which are believed to have healing properties?  The fruit are served dipped in honey, which signifies hope for a sweet year ahead.  <br>Happy Holidays from the Eastview Wellness Team, Wildcats!  See you in 2022!  <br><br>Congratulations to the <strong>senior girls' volleyball team</strong> who ran their league record to a perfect 3 and OH with a solid 3 sets to 1 victory over Nantyr Shores.  After dropping the first set 26 , 24 the ladies regrouped and stormed back to sweep the remaining 3 games. Although the victory was a complete team effort, special mention must go out to rookie right side Emma Mason who stepped up into the starting lineup playing significant minutes.  Veteran Alicia Smith dominated the middle of the court with her consistent hits and Ava Write came up huge pounding balls from the left side when the team needed points the most.  Awesome start to the season ladies, enjoy your well-deserved rest over the holidays!<br><br>A big congratulations to the <strong>Christmas Cheer fundraising</strong> winnner  AND <strong>door decorating contest</strong> . . .

It was a combined team effort that shifted the energy and momentum in the second half to allow Eastview to take the lead for the remainder of the game.
