HUMILITY - Multi-age activity

The monthly theme from the Seven Sacred teachings has been on humility. In assemblies and through classroom activities, students have been learning the meaning of humility, and what it means to think of other before themselves. 

For this month's multi-age activity, each group created posters and artwork of one of the animals represented by the Seven Sacred teachings. This included: Sabe, Wolf, Turtle, Beaver, Bison, Bear, and Eagle. These posters will be used as backdrops for our upcoming holiday concert.

Halloween for Hunger

On October 31 Salmo Elementary Students gave back to our community by participating in  Halloween for Hunger!

They went trick-or-treating for non-perishable food items for the Salmo Food Bank.

The Salmo Family of Schools had a  goal of 2000 pounds of food collected, and we almost reached it with a final count of 1300 pounds of food and $200 donations. 

Thank you, Salmo Village for your generosity!

Indigenous Veterans Day - November 8

November 8th is a day marked to honour the contributions of Indigenous Peoples to the Canadian Military.

"Did you know that First Nations served in the Canadian Military at a higher rate than any other group in this great nation? More than 4,000 Indigenous people served Canada in the First World War. In fact, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people served Canada in all the great conflicts and peace support missions of the 20th century."
