Black Excellence Day 2024

What is Black Excellence Day?

As a lead up to Black History Month, Black Excellence Day is a day to rejoice Black history and learn about Black stories, Black art and Black people, and a day to stand in solidarity with Black Canadians.
Black Excellence Day was created by Ninandotoo Society and takes place on January 15th each year.

This year the Ninandotoo Society is encouraging students to wear whatever they would like rather than encouraging the wearing of black shirts as in the past.

January 15th is in honour of the great civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who was born on January 15, 1929.

Community Gathering ~ Oct 31st @ 2:15

Staff and students will be celebrating Hallowe’en on Tuesday, Oct. 31st and your child is invited to dress up in a costume for the day. Please, however, have your child refrain from wearing any costumes that could be perceived as scary or threatening.  We also ask that NO WEAPONS, scary props or Prop MASKS be brought to school.  Certain costumes can be intimidating for the younger students and we want to ensure that everyone feels safe on this day.

*Please also note that we ask that costumes follow our district guidelines as per the attached document entitled, Culture is Not a Costume .’

Parents are welcome to join us in the school gym at 2:15PM on this day to watch some of our students perform some short songs and dances, and also participate in a costume parade.

If you are sending treats to school, please ensure these are individually wrapped.

Please contact the school office or your child’s teacher if you have any further questions.

Happy Hallowe’en, everyone
