We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, which is the traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.

Just a reminder to students to please remember to wear/bring your (A) school-provided mask or (B) your own mask to school.  Also, (1) when you enter the building to sanitize your hands (2) walking through the halls in single file/social distance and (3) bring your water bottle to school.

Breakfast bins, which are located at the front of each classroom or on the teachers’ desks, are filled with snacks for students to take if you are hungry! Students are asked to please not touch all the items in the bin; just take the item you want without touching the others!  Thank you! 

Student retake proofs have arrived.  Homeroom teachers will distribute to students.  If you would like to place an order, please do so online at or give Mrs. Eaglestone the paper order. Order deadline – December 9th!

Students are welcome to go online to order their lollipops by the end of the school day today - Wednesday. Lollipops will be delivered on Friday.

The Library started a new competition last week.  The Festive Fun Colouring Contest is open to all students who wish to submit their original drawings of anything that represents the word "festive".  This can be holidays, special occasions, a family reunion - anything you can think of that brings to mind a celebration. 
Pieces will be accepted until December 11th which gives entrants time to win the gift prize and have their creations displayed before the holidays arrive.
If you have any questions, please see Ms. Demers at lunch time or after school.

Before students are dismissed for lunch, please remove all items off your desks so they can be cleaned during the lunch break.
