Elk Island Public Schools have created a wonderful new blog to share information and resources related to First Nations, Métis and Inuit education throughout EIPS. They will highlight what's happening in our Division schools, provide resources available for students and families, and share upcoming school and community events.
HHE is proud to honour those people who have walked on these lands before us, strives to support our First Nations, Métis and Inuit families and regularly infuses Indigenous stories, histories and perspectives in our classrooms.
Sherri Johnston, our Assistant Principal, is the First Nations, Métis and Inuit lead for our school. Sherri is a member of the Métis Nation of Alberta. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
A few highlights of resources and activities:
The First Nations, Métis and Inuit education team has planned a series of in-person gatherings for families of self-identified First Nations, Métis and Inuit students who are curious to learn more about the supports offered throughout EIPS. It's an opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit families to gather together and engage in conversation in partnership with the EIPS First Nations, Métis and Inuit education team. Self-identified First Nations, Métis and Inuit families are invited—all ages are welcome. Dinner will be provided at each gathering. RSVP links will be sent directly to applicable families.
