October 24th, 2019, Seven Mountainview students and three staff attended a short talk and question period with Lamar Odom. He talked about his challenges with addiction and his recovery journey. This was a unique experience as there were only about 20 of us in the room. Afterwards we got a few pictures and autographs.
Here is a media link from the event:

They say “good things come to those who wait.”
For 13-year-old Sienna Therrien Sternfeld, that wait amounted to about two and a half years, from the time she first learned she was selected to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City from the moment she finally took the stage this past May.
“The performance was continually delayed because of the pandemic and restrictions,” said Sienna, a Grade 7 student at FACE School downtown. “I was thrilled, but also extremely nervous. I have so much respect for Carnegie Hall.”
Sienna sang Etta James’ “At Last” as part of American Protégé’s “We Sing Pop!” international pop music song contest. The competition brought together artists from across the globe, as they performed in front of a gala audience and a panel of judges.

The English Montreal School Board Council of Commissioners has mandated a legal firm to institute on its behalf the appropriate legal proceeding to contest the validity of Bill 96.
EMSB Chair Joe Ortona said that the contestation is based notably on s. 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, s. 133 of the Constitution Act, 1867 and Part V of the Constitution Act, 1982.
The Quebec National Assembly enacted Bill 96, An Act respecting French, the official and common language of Québec, on May 24, 2022. While the EMSB actively supports the protection of the French language in Quebec, including by providing strong French immersion programs that support its students in graduating as fully bilingual Quebecers, measures to protect the French language in Quebec cannot violate the constitutional rights of Quebecers.
The EMSB believes that Bill 96 violates the English-speaking community’s right to management and control of its educational institutions under s. 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Furthermore, the resolution calling for legal action states that Bill 96 violates the rights of Quebecers to legislation of equal authority in English and French and to use either English or French in the courts under s. 133 of the Constitution Act, 1867. It is the EMSB’s belief that s. 133 of the Constitution Act, 1867 cannot be unilaterally modified or restricted by the National Assembly, including by way of unilateral amendment to the Constitution Act, 1867.
