ME to WE is partnering with St FX University in Nova Scotia to bring young people from across Canada together for a one-of-a-kind leadership training experience, and we are currently looking for students to apply. The program is a one week leadership training program, which offers students the chance to live on campus, participate in workshops hosted by StFX and ME to WE, and create an action plan focused on their personal leadership development.
Applicants must be currently enrolled in Grade 10 or 11 and not attending post-secondary school in the 2016. Most importantly, we’re looking for young people who have a passion for leadership, who are actively involved in their local or global community, and who engaged critical thinkers. If selected, all expenses for the participant are covered, with the exception of travel to and from Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
Applications are open now and close on May 25, 2016, so if you know any students might be interested, please feel free to pass along this link or have them firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Nutrition Month™ is here! Every year in March, we celebrate the importance of nutrition and its role on learning and well-being. This year’s theme is “The 100 Meal Journey” which encourages Canadians to make small changes to improve health, one meal at a time. Think about it: Canadian children consume almost 100 meals each month. Making one small positive change to each meal and snack will quickly add up and support their overall health and learning! Please join our school in our efforts to create healthy learners this month and every month!

Safe Choice has been informed, by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles, that anyone who obtains their beginners up to and
including March31st, 2016, will fall under the old rules of getting your license. So, I will be putting on another course
early March, if there are any students that want to take the course that turn 16 before March 31st. They will then be able to
get their license in three months. After April 1`, 2016, even with Driver's Ed Course, they will have to wait 9 months, and without
the course 12 months.
This course will begin March 2, 2016, IF there are enough students to participate.

Note: New Drivers
What are the additional GDL changes which will happen April 1, 2016?
Effective April 1, 2016, the minimum waiting period to take the passenger vehicle road test will
be increased by 6 months. This means that you will have to wait a minimum of 12 months
instead of 6 to take your road test. The waiting period can be reduced to 9 months if you take
a qualifying driver training course.
Any parent or guardian or even someone who wishes to volunteer at our school,
there is a new policy with CCRSB that volunteers even drivers to sporting events,
need to get a volunteer package from the office, complete and send back in.
