Material Retrieval and Technology Return

Good Afternoon!

We are in the process of finalizing communication for next week and the return of technology and pick up of remaining personal items at school. EDSBY will open tomorrow for signing up for a time to come to the school. Our dates for material retrieval are June 25th & 28th. Technology can be returned on those days or may also be returned on June 29th.

To prepare for material retrieval, YRDSB has designated June 22nd for Asynchronous learning so that staff can come to the building and organize materials for students. Please watch your email later today for sign up instructions. We will see you next week!

Congratulations to our Grade 8 Graduates!

We are hosting a Drive-Thru Graduation for our Grade 8’s on Monday night. If you know a Grade 8, be sure to wish them well. If you are driving in the area on Monday night – make sure you honk your horns as you pass by and clap and shout for them so they know they are celebrated!

Cooking Success!!!!

Thanks to all who came out to cook in community! The Chocolate Covid Cake was a success and we had so much fun! If you missed the event and want to try out the recipes, see below.

Chocolate “Covid” Cake, sometimes called ‘Wacky Cake’ or ‘Depression Cake’ as the recipe comes from the Great Depression when eggs, milk and butter were not easy to come by. It is moist and light and delicious! Have a look at this website for the recipe we followed, and it includes a recipe VERY similar to the icing that we used. Remember, you don’t even need icing, just a dusting of icing sugar can do the trick!
