New This Week...

Rainbow Family Fun Night - January 19th at 6:00 PM

Our school has the honour of hosting YK1's first Rainbow Family Night. Our grade 4/5 Rainbow Club has planned an evening or art and board games on Friday, January 19th between 6-8pm in our school gym. There will also be a bake sale to raise funds for our school's Rainbow Clubs. Invitations have been sent to the other YK1 schools and everyone is welcome. We hope to see many of you from the YK1 community on Friday evening! Thanks to Mme Ashley and the Rainbow Club students for their work in organizing the district's first Family Fun Night!

Annual Book Exchange!

In celebration of family literacy day, we will once again be hosting our school book exchange.  Students are invited to bring the books they would like to  exchange to school from January 22 to 24th. For every book they donate, they will receive a coupon. Our librarian will sort and organize the books. Beginning on January, 25th and 26th, classes will go to the library to exchange their coupons for donated books. Please make sure the books your child donates match their reading level (ie: picture books vs novels). This will help make sure that there are enough books at appropriate levels for all of our students.

Happy reading!


Thank You For Making A Difference

The Northwest Territories Teachers' Association is running its annual ‘Thank You For Making A Difference’ campaign. This is an opportunity to nominate someone at the school who has made a difference. Students, parents and community members are welcome to recognize someone. To do so, please fill out the form provided (English version) (French version) and thank someone who has made a difference for them. All forms are then entered into a draw that happens at the end of the month.

West Coast Seeds Sale Fundraiser

Our West Coast Seeds fundraiser application has been approved! The fundraiser sale will be from 3 Jan 2024 - 3 Feb 2024 with 40% of all sales going to our school’s PAC! This year there will be a larger selection of seeds to choose from. Please use the link below to order.


All orders will be shipped in bulk at the end of the sale for organization. Once that has taken place, we post additional information to our website on the distribution of your individual orders. This is a great way to get ready for the new gardening season while also supporting our school!

Draft School Calendar for 2024/2025

The next school year's calendar is currently being developed. There are calendars available for JK-8 (available here) and 9 though 12 (available here). This is your opportunity to comment upon the proposed calendar! The final draft will be considered by the YK1 Trustees at their monthly meeting later in January. If you have thoughts on the proposed calendar, please send them by email to

Breakfast Program - Volunteers Needed for January!

The Ecole Itlo Breakfast Program is looking for volunteers! Breakfast is offered every morning to all students in the school kitchen. Parent volunteers are needed every morning from 7:45-8:45 am to set up, serve, and clean up after breakfast. It is a lovely way to get to know the school community. 

All volunteers must complete a Vulnerable Sector Check. If your most recent check is over a year old, you will need to renew it. If this is the case, please contact the front office and Mme Laura can draft a letter for you to take to the RCMP to get the check completed.

If you are able to help out, please indicate your availability on this sign up sheet, which also has a link with more information about how the program runs. You can email the Parent Advisory Council ( with any questions. As well, please consider joining our Facebook group (Ecole Itlo PAC) to stay updated about upcoming school and PAC events.
