Highlights from this morning’s announcements:

Read first: “I would like to acknowledge that this school is situated upon traditional territories. The territories include the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of Scugog, Hiawatha, Alderville First Nation and the Métis Nation. The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Williams Treaties of 1923 and applies to lands east of Woodbine Avenue. I also recognize the enduring presence of Aboriginal peoples on this land.”

  • A message from the Eco Club: Did you know that when it’s cold out, chickadees and cardinals fluff their feathers to trap air and stay warmer? We don’t have feathers, but we can wear more layers of clothing and trap warm air near our bodies when we are out in the cold. Hope you have fun playing in the snow!
