  • Today is Thursday November 7th and it is Day 1 in our schedule.  Our character theme for November is Empathy and here is something to think about.  “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them fell.” – Bonnie Jean Wasmund
  • Book Fair crew, please come to the library ta last recess for an important meeting.
  • Techie Teacher Thursday is on today.  See you in the library at 11:35am!
  • November 7th is “International Inuit Day”.  It was declared a day of significance at the 2006 Inuit Circumpolar Council general assembly in Barrow, Alaska, as a day when Inuit honour the memory of Inuit Circumpolar Council’s late founding president Eben Hopson, who was born on Nov 7, 1922.  In 1976, Hopson rallied the Inuit leaders of Greenland, Canada, the United States and Russia to form an international organization(then called the Inuit Circumpolar Conference).  The North Slope borough mayor hosted the first ICC assembly in 1977 in Barrow where delegates passed 17 resolutions on Inuit land claims, Arctic environmental protection, Arctic health and technology and Inuit culture and education.  “The single most important issue facing all Inuit, regardless of where they live, is preservation of a unique culture, identity and way of life before they are destroyed by large-scale industrial development and the intrusions of southern society,”  Hopson said at the time.  Today is also an opportunity for all Canadians to reflect on the important relationship and history we share with the Inuit of Canada, as we move forward in our journey of reconciliation and a renewed Canada and Indigenous peoples.
