At the most recent School Council meeting, we began a conversation about what our goals are. We started by finding words that inspire us.
The list of words and ideas is below. Which words inspire you? If you have a way with words, why not try writing a Blake School Council Mission Statement? Send us your ideas, based on some of the words below. The winner gets a free ticket to the next Blake School Council meeting!!! (Yes, that’s a joke! School Council meetings are open to everyone, we promise!)
- active role
- sharing and exchanging knowledge
- every student
- rich culture
Welcome back, Blake families! We hope you all had a fun and restful March Break.

If you’re wondering what’s on the menu, the minestrone soup is now officially complete. Fingers crossed that it tastes as good as it smells. http://littlespicejar.com/homemade-minestrone-soup-slow-cooker/#

A message from Kelly Dyment:
First, a thank you to all who contributed a story to our Indigo Blake page – we have now achieved 10 out of the possible 10 free books available for that endeavour!
With 6 days left in the campaign, we are still shy of last year’s amount raised in house. We are at $940 raised so far, whereas last year our community fundraising hit $2,300. While it’s amazing to see what’s happening in the store, part of the reason we were selected was because they could see the amount our own community raised. At this point we have only earned 31 of the 40 possible ‘extra’ books in this category.
The store still has a fundraising target of $15,000 and are currently sitting at $8,200. Let’s be sure we show them lots of love on Twitter (@IndigoEatonCtr) and Facebook (@indigoEatonCentre). Let’s help achieve our goals and theirs!
Thanks for all the support thus far – our kids will be benefiting in a HUGE way!
