This is a solemn reminder of our mortality and our broken hearts, and a call to repentance and to grow closer to Christ by reflecting on what we can do better. “Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Today, we all can take part in reflecting on how we treat others in the hallways and outside of the school, and share a simple act of kindness or even a smile to someone that we normally overlook.

Good morning Chargers, today’s Black History Month highlight is about Violet King who was the first Black person to get a law degree in Alberta.

She inspired other racialized women to be lawyers and to follow their dreams.

Good morning Chargers, today’s Black History Month highlight is about how Black History Month began in Canada. In 1978, the founders of the Ontario Black History Society asked the City of Toronto to have February formally called Black History Month. In December 1995, the House of Commons officially recognized February as Black History Month in Canada following a motion by the honourable Dr. Jean Augustine, who was the first Black Canadian woman elected to Parliament. In February 2008, Senator Donald Oliver, the first Black man appointed to the Senate, introduced the Motion to Recognize Contributions of Black Canadians and February as Black History Month.


The girls varsity hockey game won an exciting game in a shootout against Georgetown yesterday 3-2.

Good morning Chargers, today’s Black History Month highlight is about Black History in the 1800s. Did you know that some of the Loyalists who came to Canada after the American Revolution and settled in the Maritimes were people of African descent?

Black History Month is a time to learn more about these and many other important contributions that Black Canadians and their communities have made to the history and continued growth of this country.

Winter is officially here, with snow on the way and colder temperatures.  This is just a reminder that ALL VEHICLES require a visible parking pass. The lot is now full. If your vehicle is not registered, you can be towed.  Student parking is ONLY in the lot by the Main Entrance and Library.  If a student cannot find parking in this main lot, you will have to park on a side street.  There is ABSOLUTELY no parking in the drop-off zone by the front entrance (where field trip buses park). That area is a fire lane and fire trucks and emergency vehicles need access at ALL times. Unfortunately, the Town closes the back parking lot every winter, so there are less parking spots for everyone.  Having a parking pass does not guarantee you a parking spot, so do not park on the yellow hatched lines - the lines are there so you will not block anybody in.  Finally, do not park in front of the yellow metal gate that closes the back parking lot - this is a Town access point and they WILL give you a $100 fine for blocking this gate. Be kind and let’s all try to make the best of this winter parking season.

January is the Tamil Heritage Month

Canada is the proud home of one of the world’s largest Tamil diasporas.  The Province of Ontario proclaimed January Tamil Heritage Month on March 25, 2014. On October 5, 2016, the Government of Canada declared the month of January as National Tamil Heritage Month. It is meant to recognize the important contributions that Tamil Canadians have made to Canada’s social, economic, political, and cultural fabric, and to remember, celebrate, and educate future generations about the inspirational role that Tamil Canadians have played, and continue to play, in communities across the country.

The month of January was chosen as it coincides with one of the most important celebrations for Canadians of Tamil heritage, the Thai Pongal harvest festival. This also marks the start of the new year and the first month of Thai in the Tamil solar calendar and falls in the middle of January. Millions of Tamil people around the world celebrate Thai Pongal and offer thanks to the Sun and for the harvest. The Thai Pongal day this year is on Monday, January 15.


Millions of Orthodox Christians around the world celebrated Christmas yesterday. 


The Feast of the Nativity of Jesus is one of the most joyful days of the Orthodox Church. It ranks next to the greatest holiday, the Resurrection of Jesus. The Feast of the Birth of Jesus is also known as the "Incarnation of Christ." This means that Jesus became a man and came into the world to save us.

Hey Garth Webb, Christmas is celebrated on December 25th by millions of Christians from different backgrounds all around the world. It is the culmination of the advent season and marks the birth of the baby Jesus, the long-awaited Messiah and King. Christians celebrate this time with reflections on hope, peace, joy, and love, which are symbolised on the 4 candles of the advent wreath. With the hope and joy that Jesus brings at Christmas, we are encouraged to use it to heal the broken, provide for the needy, bring peace to our communities, and share light in the darkness. Merry Christmas Garth Webb!


The word “Kwanza” is a KiSwahili word meaning “first.” Kwanzaa is an African-American celebration of life from 26 December to 1 January. The symbols of Kwanzaa includes crops which represents the historical roots of African-Americans in agriculture and also the reward for collective labor. The mat lays the foundation for self-actualization. The candle holder reminds believers in the ancestral origins in one of 55 African countries. Corn/maize signifies children and the hope associated in the younger generation. Gifts represent commitments of the parents for the children. The unity cup is used to pour libations to the ancestors. Finally, the seven candles remind participants of the seven principles and the colors in flags of African liberation movements -- 3 red, 1 black, and 3 green

Balance your thinking: Happy Wellness Wednesday Chargers. Did you know 3 in 4 high school students admit to being stressed, all the time? Anxiety and stress causes harmful thoughts and overthinking. Unhelpful thoughts can affect someone's well-being drastically. It is very important to balance your thinking. Next time you feel you are having unhelpful thoughts ask yourself these questions: How do I know this is true? Has this happened before? What else could be going on? What else could be true? What would I tell a friend? These questions help slow down your thoughts and remind yourself, thoughts are not facts. Balancing your thoughts helps to reduce anxiety, stress and increasing feeling relaxed and calmer. Join the Wellness Club today, in the office conference room at lunch to learn more Wellness strategies and planning.

Self-Soothing with Senses: Garth Webb, Chargers. The Wellness Club provides many resources and techniques this week to limit stress and relax before the Winter Break. Feeling overwhelmed and stressed is common among students. Experiencing difficult emotions may be challenging, taking time to use the Self-Soothing with Senses technique is a great way to focus on your surroundings and relax yourself. Stress and anxiety leads to challenging emotions, taking time to distract ourselves helps to regulate these difficult emotions. The Self- Soothing with Senses works like this: focus on 5 things you can see, 4 things you can feel, 3 things you hear, 2 things you smell, and 1 thing you taste.

Deep Breathing Technique: Chargers. Did you know 3 in 4 high school students admit to being stressed, the majority of the time? As the Winter Break approaches it is important to practice stress reducer techniques to limit your stress levels. The Wellness Club offers many techniques to limit stress you can practice in your everyday life. 

When feeling stressed, your body's breathing speeds up, causing you to feel lightheaded or hard to breathe. The Deep Breathing Technique is an amazing way to calm your body down while stressed. The technique works like this: Inhale slowly through your nose for 4 seconds, pause and hold your breath for 4 seconds then exhale through your mouth for 6 seconds, repeat for at least 2 minutes or more until relaxed. Deep breathing is an easy and effective technique to slow down and relax the body fast.

The Wellness Club is hosting a meeting in the office conference room at lunch on Wednesday. Join us to learn more stress reduction techniques and planning before the winter break.

It has been over 30 years since the murder of 14 young women at Polytechnique Montréal on December 6, 1989. This act of violent misogyny shook our country and led Parliament to designate December 6th as The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is about remembering those who have experienced gender-based violence and those who we have lost to it. It is also a time to take action. Achieving a Canada free from gender-based violence requires everyone living in this country to educate themselves and their families and communities on gender-based violence, centre the voices of survivors in our actions and speak up against harmful behaviours. Now we ask that teachers please play the video provided in the email.

This annual memorial began in 1999, when it was founded by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith. It commemorated the death of Rita Hester, a trans woman, who was killed in 1998, as well as honouring all the deaths that followed. To honour and celebrate the lives of transgender people, you can wear black or hold a moment of silence for lives lost.

It’s Remembrance Week at Garth Webb. The year 2023 marks 80 years since the beginning of the Italian Campaign; a series of battles to liberate Italy from fascist dictator, Benito Mussolini. Fighting in the Italian town of Ortona in December of 1943, the Canadians pioneered a mouse–holing tactic that consisted of blowing holes in buildings with artillery so that troops may move around while remaining under cover instead of fighting in the streets where they would be exposed to enemy fire. Canadian forces served in the heat, snow and mud of the grinding, nearly two-year Allied battle across Sicily and up the Italian peninsula—prying the country from Germany's grip, at a cost of more than 26,000 Canadian casualties. Lest We Forget.

It’s Remembrance Week Garth Webb. Are you wearing a poppy? Why not? Most of us know that Remembrance Day is celebrated each year on November 11th. But do you know why? The fighting of the First World War stopped with a ceasefire that took place at the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918. What was initially called “Armistice Day” and became known as “Remembrance Day” after World War II. The red poppies are a symbol of remembrance inspired by Major John McRae’s poem “In Flanders Fields”. You can read his poem on the windows of our front foyer. Lest We Forget.

Hey Chargers! Did you know today is National Coming Out Day? Founded in 1988 by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Lear, National Coming Out Day celebrates coming out and provides awareness and visibility of the 2SLGBTQ community. Its aim is to demonstrate that the 2SLGBTQ community is everywhere. The founders believed that homophobia thrives in silence and ignorance, therefore when people know they have loved ones in the community they are less likely to keep their homophobic viewpoints. “Coming Out” is also something unique to each person – people face different challenges when coming out. “Coming out” isn’t an end goal and is not what all queer people should be working towards. It overlooks the fact that you don’t come out just once; you come out across your life over and over again, to different people within different environments. Happy National Coming Out Day!

2SLBTQ+ History Month is celebrated in October in the US, Canada, and Australia.Rodney Wilson, the first openly gay history teacher at a public Missouri high school, realized that students weren’t learning about the history of 2SLBTQ+ people or the 2SLBTQ+ rights movement. He intentionally chose October for 2SLBTQ+ History Month for several reasons. Even though most people think of the Stonewall Riots in June when they think of 2SLBTQ+ history, some other important historical events took place in October. The first and second Marches on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights took place in October 1979 and 1987. These marches aimed to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation in the military, federal jobs, and family protection laws. While these goals have only recently been achieved, the marches successfully established a large network of members across the US, unifying the community around common priorities, and forced the country to realize how many 2SLBTQ+ people and allies there are. 


Happy World Teachers' Day to all of the fantastic teachers at  Garth Webb! We thank you for your commitment and dedication to the students in our community. Your compassion for students and passion for teaching makes all the difference. Chargers, be sure to tell your teachers how much you appreciate them.


Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957. It is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year. Thanksgiving Day in Canada is linked to the European tradition of harvest festivals. A common image seen at this time of year is a cornucopia, or horn, filled with seasonal fruit and vegetables. The cornucopia, which means "Horn of Plenty" in Latin, was a symbol of bounty and plenty in ancient Greece. Turkeys, pumpkins, ears of corn and large displays of food are also used to symbolise Thanksgiving Day. Thanksgiving Day is a national public holiday in Canada. Many people have the day off work and all schools and post offices are closed. Many stores and other businesses and organisations are also closed. Public transport services may run to a reduced timetable or may not run at all. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

And now for our Islamic Heritage Month Fact - Did you know - - Islam is considered as one of the three monotheistic Abrahamic faiths, alongside Christianity and Judaism. Three Prophets that are integral to these Abrahamic faiths are Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad as their lineages are traced to Prophet Abraham.  According to Islam, all of the Prophets brought a common, monotheistic message to humanity. Many are surprised to learn that more similarities than differences exist between the three faiths, and by extension, all faiths.


Applications for Student Senate are due tomorrow. Anyone interested must pick up a permission form in the office. Also, please send a paragraph or two stating why you would like to be chosen for Student Senate to Principal Pece by tomorrow.

In 2007, the Government of Canada had declared the month of October every year as Canadian Islamic History Month.
