October 26th Provincial Conference Day – No Classes
We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, which is the traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
MI’KMAQ HISTORY MONTH
October is Mi’kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia. The goal of the month is to help Nova Scotians build awareness of Mi’kmaq history and heritage, and to increase understanding of the province’s rich Mi’kmaq culture. Treaty Day, October 1st marks the beginning of Mi'kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia as proclaimed in 1993 by then Premier John Savage and Mi’kmaq Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy.
Next week, October 22nd-25th is our Fall Fest! Listen carefully to announcements so you don't miss out on Spirit Days and fun activities every day at lunch!
Leadership (Fall Spirit Week):
Monday will be Socks & Scarves day. To celebrate a successful Socktober drive, please wear whacky socks and/or scarves. At lunch on Monday, our Leadership team will have a contest to see who can guess how much candy is in the jar. So bring your change because the person with the closest guess will get all the candy! Each guess will be 25 cents each with a maximum of 4 guesses. Good luck to everyone!
Tuesday will be Twin Day and at lunch come to the gym to play Musical Scares! It's 25cents to enter the gym. No non-participating spectators please.
Wednesday is Plaid/Flannel day. On Wednesday at lunch we will be playing Smash the Mash again this year! That means The Monster Mash will play, on repeat, until we reach our fundraising goal of $75 to be donated to the same shelter as our Socktober drive. If you can remember how annoying this was last year, bring in some money to make it stop faster!
Last but not least, Thursday will be PJ day and there will be a special Halloween edition of Just Dance going on in the gym at lunch. Again it's 25cents to enter the gym and there will be no non-participating spectators.
Check the bulletin board in the front lobby for all of the spirit days and activities!
