Orange Shirt Day

orange-shirt-day

Clearview will be participating in Orange Shirt Day on Friday September 30th. If students have an orange shirt we encourage them to wear it this Friday.

The Story of the Orange Shirt:

I went to the Mission for one school year in 1973/1974. I had just turned 6 years old. I lived with my grandmother on the Dog Creek reserve. We never had very much money, and there was no welfare, but somehow my granny managed to buy me a new outfit to go to the Mission school. I remember going to Robinson’s store and picking out a shiny orange shirt. It had string laced up in front, and was so bright and exciting – just like I felt to be going to school! When I got to the Mission, they stripped me, and took away my clothes, including the orange shirt! I never saw it again. I didn’t understand why they wouldn’t give it back to me, it was mine! The color orange has always reminded me of that and how my feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared and how I felt like I was worth nothing. All of us little children were crying and no one cared. I was 13.8 years old and in grade 8 when my son Jeremy was born. Because my grandmother and mother both attended residential school for 10 years each, I never knew what a parent was supposed to be like. With the help of my aunt, Agness Jack, I was able to raise my son and have him know me as his mother. I went to a treatment centre for healing when I was 27 and have been on this healing journey since then. I finally get it, that the feeling of worthlessness and insignificance, ingrained in me from my first day at the mission, affected the way I lived my life for many years. Even now, when I know nothing could be further than the truth, I still sometimes feel that I don’t matter. Even with all the work I’ve done! I am honored to be able to tell my story so that others may benefit and understand, and maybe other survivors will feel comfortable enough to share their stories. TODAY Phyllis is married, has one son and two grandsons aged nine and five years old. She is Northern Secwepemc (Shuswap) from the Stswecem’c Xgat’tem First Nation (Canoe Creek Indian Band). She comes from mixed Secwepemc and Irish/French heritage, was born in Dog Creek, and lives in Williams Lake, BC. She earned diplomas in Business Administration from the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology; and in Accounting from Thompson Rivers University.

Welcome Back

The 2016-2017 school year is right around the corner. Please see the following timeframe for what is happening for the start of the year.

Kindergarten Students ONLY
You will have the opportunity to bring your child for a very informal “drop-in” time here in our classroom. This is a time that you are asked to remain with your child so that both of you can check out our classroom, locate your child’s mailbox and coat hook, play with and put away a few toys, and ask any questions that either of you may have.
Unfortunately, your child won’t be able to ride the bus until the first full day of Kindergarten, which will be on Wed. Sept 14, unless you make arrangements with your child’s bus driver ahead of time. I will not be doing anything formal during these times; it is just to get your child comfortable with our classroom and with me.

Please choose one drop in session from below. You can arrive at any time during a session and you can stay as long as you like, up until the session time ends. You do not need to book ahead – please just show up.

Choose ONE of the following informal drop-in visitation sessions:

Wednesday, Sept 7 between 1:00-2:30pm

Thursday, Sept 8 between 9:00-11:30am

Tuesday, Sept 13 between 9:00-11:30am

The first day of full-time kindergarten classes will begin on Wednesday, September 14, 2016

 

Grade 1-Grade 9 Students

Tuesday September 6 is the first day of school. Students will come to school in the morning at their normal bus time. It is a shortened day as the busses will be leaving Clearview at 10:45am to return home. Please be aware that your children will be home prior to lunch on Tuesday.

Wednesday September 7 is the first full day of school for Grade 1- Grade 9 students.
