This year’s Spirit Week 2019, from March 11-15, is all about making change in our own backyard! We are focusing on raising awareness and engagement on important issues and barriers faced by communities in our Downtown Eastside DTES, including the effects of opioid crisis, mental health and homelessness. We also celebrate the local people and organizations making change and changing lives in the DTES.
Throughout the week, we will be raising awareness and funds to support the great work of the following organizations:
One of the ways we get you to support our causes and also have fun during the week is by buying Spirit Week “merch”. This year we have our WE Eastside Hoodie and Bee Socks for sale. We will also have products from Hives for Humanity and the annual Spirit Week lunch – order forms for these items coming soon. We need you to order the Spirit Week gear now so we can deliver them to you in March. Students have permission to wear the SW19 We Eastside hoodie and socks during the week as substitutes in combination with the other parts of the school uniform.
Please check out the order form below. Both items are marked up in price and the extra funds of course go towards supporting our causes noted above.
