Daily Announcements - January 17, 2019 Announcements - January 17, 2019<p>​<strong>Date: Thursday January 17th, 2019 </strong></p><p><strong>Day: </strong>(SCDSB 5 Day Cycle) <strong>Day 5</strong></p><p>1. Popcorn will be on sale in the lobby at first break tomorrow! This is a reminder to bring your loonies for popcorn! Thank you!</p><p>2. Yesterday, the Birchview Dunes intermediate co-ed hockey team participated in the Hockey Day in Collingwood celebration hosted by CCI and the town of Collingwood. The team of 17 students started their day off strong with a decisive win over our cross town rivals at Worsley. The team then moved on to play a very strong SCI team. The Birchview team jumped to an early lead, but was unable to hold on to their lead to the fast skating Stayner team.  This loss set the Birchview team up to play for the bronze medal game against Nottawa. Recovering from their earlier tough match, the Birchview team jumped out to an early commanding lead and held on comfortably throughout the rest of the match to win the game in a convincing manner. Congratulation to all of the members of the hockey team for having displayed great sportsmanship, athleticism and teamwork throughout the day. The team members were excellent ambassadors for our school, and should be proud of their accomplishments.  A final special thank you to all of the parents and staff who helped and supported the team to make this event possible.</p><p>3. Yesterday was Waste Free Wednesday here at Birchview! Thank you to all of the students who brought in waste free lunches to help our environment. Let's see who the winners of the waste free warrior trophies are! In the kindergarten division, the trophy goes to Mrs. Wonta's class with 6 waste free lunches.

Tomorrow is Waste Free Wednesday. </p><p>Why bother packing a Waste Free Lunch? Reducing our waste is essential if we expect future generations to live in a world with clean air and land to grow food. New research shows that plastics emit powerful greenhouse gases as they degrade, contributing to climate change. Plastic pollution is a major local and global problem that we need to take responsibility for now. Buying groceries in bulk, and packing your lunch in containers reduces many pounds of plastic that you produce each year. Think about it. Do your part. Now get packing Birchview and earn points for your class. Who will win the Eco Warrior Trophy this week?</p><p>5. Attention Intermediate Writers Club members. The Writers Club will be meeting in the library on Wednesday Day 4 during second break.</p>
