Greetings To Our Empower Learner Supporters,
Hello to all our learners, families and supporters out there. Can you believe we are already a quarter of the way through the school year? I know for many of the learners and staff here the year is really moving fast.
We want to give a big thank you to all of those that stopped in for conferences and take part in the Hot Dog and Chilli night. If you did not have a chance to come in for conferences, remember, you can always stop in the ELC or give us a call. We would be happy to talk about your learner. Our next big family event is the annual Christmas Tea the learners of the ELC will host on Dec 20th at noon. The Tea is always a great event for our families to kick-off the holiday break.
Although it was a rare last two weeks with no out of building activities, many of our learners remained busy.
Janelle from CMJTS visited with a few of our students to complete applications for the Youth Build program. this program provides an opportunity for learners to earn money while gaining work experience while serving our greater communities. It is not too late to sign up if you have a learner interested.
Many of our learners also took part in researching political parties that align with their values and after that took part in a mock election. Almost every office had a very close or tied outcome. Many of our learners found they have the same ideas about government as some very obscure but actual political parties.
Finally, this week we hosted Justine from WINDOW, who had a great interactive presentation on health and safe dating and relationships. It was interesting to see our learners so engaged with the presentation and provided Justine some excellent insight for her to use in future presentations.

HELP THE ELC. If you purchase milk from Kwik Trip, please send in your bottle tops or bag tops. The ELC is in the process of collecting them to fund some of our projects and trips. Each one is worth 5 cents, and they are adding up fast. Thank you to those who bring them in.
