Bell Let’s Talk Day is only 7 short days away on January 29. Let’s all join the conversation on social media! Bell will donate 5 cents to mental health initiatives for every text, mobile and long distance call by Bell customers, tweet using #BellLetsTalk, social media video view, or use of the Facebook frame or Snapchat filter. 42% of Canadians were unsure whether they would socialize with a friend who has a mental illness. Being a good listener and asking how you can help, sometimes just being there for people you care about, can be the first step in recovery. Listening and asking are simple actions we can all take to end stigma. Here are a few examples of what to say: “I’m sorry you aren’t feeling well. I’ve noticed you’ve seemed down lately. Is everything ok?” If you think that you might be having a mental health issue or a friend is, please reach out to your teacher, guidance counsellor, our school social worker, or a principal. They’re here to listen.
Attention Varsity Curlers - There will be no game or practice on Jan 29. Please return your permission forms for Gore to Ms. Kelly asap as the competition is next weekend.
Good morning Eastview! Just a couple reminders from the Library...today is the final co-op in-school day for semester one, so the library is NOT available for independent study during periods 2-5. Also - to avoid having your wifi access cut off, be sure to return all library books TODAY! Finally, during exams the library will be open for Independent, SILENT Study from 7:45-8:25 am. Exams are being written every day in the library, so the space is NOT available for independent study until all exams are completed each day. Thank you for your cooperation!

It’s a fact: One in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness at some point in their lifetime. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with a mental illness do not seek help. Bell Let’s Talk Day is Jan. 29 and all Wildcats are invited to join the conversation at let’stalk.bell.ca
Good Morning, Eastview! A reminder that draft second semester timetables can be viewed through the Student Portal. Login to confirm that your draft timetable looks the way you need it to, for your pathway goals. In most cases, courses are very full and there will be limited opportunities for changes. A print copy of your timetable will be distributed on February 3.
The Varsity boys and girls Curling teams are reminded to bring their forms for Gore Regionals to Ms. Kelly. Additionally, the boys team is reminded of our game against Banting on Jan 29 at 3:30 and the girls practice the same day. Please see Ms. Kelly if you are unable to attend.
Good morning Eastview! Save your wifi access! Get your library books back! Today, during locker clean out, look for your friendly neighborhood librarians in the hallways and return your books. This Wednesday is the final semester 1 due date.
