The Seaway Scoop – November 6, 2019

By Danika Nielsen and Olivia Chafe

Things got spooky last week at Seaway District High School. From Monday, October 28th to Friday, November 1st, Seaway held spirit week events daily. Monday was “Twin Day”, Tuesday was “Tie-Die Day”, Wednesday was “Orange and Black Day”, Thursday was “Costume Day”, and Friday was “Flannel Day”. Throughout the week student council was been selling Halloween-O-Grams and had bake sales to raise money for student council programs.

The boys’ volleyball team went to a tournament at St. Lawrence Secondary School in Cornwall. They battled in their first game, against St Lawrence and lost in the third set. They lost their second game of the tournament to Glengarry District High School and did not advance to play offs. Coach Lyndsay Fleming said she was very proud of how much they grew as athletes over the past two months.

On Monday, November 4th, the province’s new “No Phones in the Classroom” policy comes into place. Students will start to see three different signs at school to tell them when they may use their mobile devices in class. Green check mark – use of student-owned device permitted in the classroom for instructional purposes; Yellow question mark – use of student-owned devices may be permitted, if you check with the teacher; Red ‘X’ – use of student owned devices may not be permitted in the classroom.
