As an incredibly challenging school year slowly comes to an end, the EMSB is planning to celebrate the resilience of our students, staff and families in a fun and unique way. Partnering with The Directors Showband and their team of professional videographers, The Directors will craft an original song that will celebrate wellness, resilience and perseverance. Accompanying the song will be a professionally shot and edited music video starring our students, staff and families. From a family birthday to children playing the park, the EMSB is asking our community to upload their special moments to: http://www.emsb.qc.ca/wellness until May 31.
Beginning on June 1, the public will then be able to vote on their favourite videos for inclusion in the music video. Capping off the campaign will be a special video launch on the first day of school where The Directors will perform the song live in a school yard.
Visit the EMSB's educational resources section for educational and mental health support links for families. Links and activities for elementary and high school students are available.
The provincial Government also has a new educational website called Open School where you can find more educational activities for your children.
Public Health authorities ask that you assess your health each morning. This on-line tool will help you determine if you can report to school/work or should stay home and seek further assessment for COVID-19.
