Experiences Canada's 150 & Me
Experiences Canada’s 150 & Me
Experiences Canada has launched 150 & Me, a national youth-lead contest and series of youth forums being held across the country in Spring 2017. Imagine getting the chance to travel on a once in a lifetime exchange for a week of amazing activities, culminating in your participation at one of four regional 150 & Me forums, joining youth from across the country.
A final leadership group, of 150 youth, will be selected amongst those participating at the forums (both in person and online) and will travel to Ottawa during the Canada 2017 festivities to play a role in making Canada Day 2017 happen, while also taking part in a final National Youth Forum where business and government leaders will hear what Canada’s youth have to say about shaping the country’s future.
In order for a students to participate they need to answer one question: What is Canada’s greatest opportunity or challenge facing their generation? Students can submit their answers by writing an essay, producing a video, creating an art piece, song or other creative way they choose. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2017. Learn more at http://experiencescanada.ca/150/participate/i-am-a-student/

No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for Students:
No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for students:
In our ongoing effort to provide safe and caring schools for our students, Salisbury Composite High School is once again participating in the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation’s No Child Without program. The program is a national initiative that provides children—between the ages four of 14—who have chronic health conditions with MedicAlert services, at no cost. The goal is twofold: to help children with severe allergies, medical conditions or special needs and to assist schools with medical-emergency plans for students.
Once a child is registered, their school is provided with advice on a medical-emergency plan for that student and given a list of medications, allergies and medical conditions the student has. If your child has a serious medical condition or allergy and would benefit from MedicAlert services, please contact the school office at 780-467-8816. To learn more about the No Child Without program visit www.nochildwithout.ca.
Acorn and Student Fees
2016-2017 School fees are available on the PowerSchool Parent Portal under the "Student Fees" tab.
All fees are due 30 days after assessment. Fees can be paid on-line using VISA, MasterCard or INTERAC Online (If available from your financial institution).
Remember to check your "Student Fees" account regularly as fees are often added to your child's account throughout the school year. i.e. field trips, course changes, and athletic fees.
For more information about school fees visit www.eips.ca/school/school-fees/acorn or contact Jackie Uhrig or Karen Schlegl at 780-467-8816.
