Fairview Junior High

June 1st, 2023

• June is National Indigenous History Month - This is a time to honor the history, culture, and diversity of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Peoples in what we now know as Canada and to recognize the strength and resilience across communities.

• June is Pride Month – It is celebrated in June because of an event at the Stonewall Inn in the US. The Inn was a popular place for LGBTQ+ community. Police raided it in June 1969 arresting several people and roughing up patrons. People outside witnessed what was happening and started to stand up to police starting a riot. This lead to what is known as the Stonewall riots. These riots were the spark that ignited the LGBTQ+ rights movement. During pride month we commemorate the struggle for civil rights and ongoing pursuit of equality. We also celebrate the accomplishments of LGBTQ+ individuals.

• Bake Sale - Grade 9 students will be selling candy and cookies today in the front lobby during lunch to raise money for Feed Nova Scotia.

• Freezie Sale – 9-1 will be selling freezies tomorrow in the foyer to raise money for cleaning and planting new plants in the front gardens. Please bring a loonie to purchase your freezie.

• Donations - You’ll notice some new posters on the walls around the school. Grade 9 students are looking for donations to provide students with the essentials that they need. There are lots of things you can donate, such as sanitary products, clothing and food. Just be sure that any food being donated is non-perishable. We will have a box in the office for all the donations, you can bring them in anytime. Thank you.
