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 your school-provided mask or your own mask every day and to make sure your mask covers your nose!  Also, (1) when you enter the building to sanitize your hands (2) walking through the halls in single file/social distance where possible, (3) bring your water bottle to school and (4) before you are dismissed for lunch, please remove all items off your desk so they can be cleaned during the lunch break.

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 this Wednesday – December 9th!

Submissions for the Festive Fun Colouring Contest ends this week.  A holiday gift will be awarded to best submission!  See Ms. Demers for details.
Also in the Library, Ms. Demers has packaged some reading packages to take out for a month!  Lots of genres and surprises to entertain you while on break.  Read them all or just a few to expand your literacy skills.
