February 17th 2020 - February 21st 2020 All Day
For the past 15 years Hooked on School Days (HSD), held during the third week of February, has mobilized Quebecers around the educational success of young people. The next edition will take place from February 17 to 21, 2020.
This event reminds students, parents, school staff, employers, and all provincial and regional stakeholders that they play a vital role in encouraging young Quebecers to stay in school.
Every year, thousands of HSD activities and events take place in schools and municipalities across Québec.
Hooked on School Days are held and organized by Québec’s regional consulting authorities (Instances régionales de concertation–IRCs) on student retention and educational success. These IRCs mobilize hundreds of organizations in all regions of Québec around the importance of taking tangible measures to improve the educational success of youth, from pre-schoolers to young adults. www.perseverancescolaire.com
This year, the campaign aims to illustrate the power of small gestures – actions anyone can take. When they’re all added up, they can make a real difference in the success of young people, from pre-schoolers to young adults.
Whether you’re a parent; a family member; a friend; an early childhood educator; a child care worker; a teacher; a community, school, or employability counsellor; a professional or manager; an employer; or a municipal or provincial elected official, we can all take tangible actions and make commitments that encourage our young people to stay in school and support their educational success.

Help continue to build upon the CDC Vimont Tree of Perseverance by having students write on the leaves. They can write things like the qualities they are proudest of or the challenges they have overcome and how they have persevered. Have the students write their ideas and thoughts on the leaves to create a school tree. After adding to the tree, encourage students to share on social media.
