Ms. Tania Gould and the students of grades Primary to five would like to thank their parents/guardians/family members who were able to attend their Elementary Mi'kmaw Language Pitewey/Tea Social.  We hope you enjoyed (and learned) from us when we spoke our language, played some games and entertained you.  We also hoped you enjoyed your beverage and the Pkwiman/Blueberry cake.

Regular Attendance is one of the best ways to help ensure students are successful in school and later in life. It can lead to better grades, developing important social skills and friendships, and a greater opportunity of graduating from high school.

When attending school regularly, students are present for class discussions, demonstrations, group work, hands-on activities, etc.  There are among the most affective ways for students to learn.

Then number of absenteeism tell us that schools and families need to work together, more closely, to ensure students have good attendance and are on time for class.

Regular attendance starts at the elementary level so that students receive the instructional time necessary to develp basic skills which are the bulding blocks for furture learning.

IF YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR CHILD ATTENDING SCHOOL REGULARLY, YOUR SCHOOL CAN HELP.

On Tuesday, February 26th, Former NHL hockey player Theo Fleury came to our school to speak about his life experience and message of hope in his workshop "Reflections on Healing and Trauma, a One-Day Conversation". Mr. Fleury addressed the students in grades 7 to 12 about his personal trauma, past life of alcoholism and drug addictions. Members from the RCMP, elders, children services and other support people were on hand to offer support to those who were affected by the blunt conversation.

Students in grade two completed their "Clan" animals using their last names of either their parents or grandparents.

On April 12th, staff and students wore jerseys to honour the Humboldt's hockey team/staff.

The Grade One class was inspired by the story of Residential School Survivor, Magit Sylliboy and her rag doll.

Congratulations to Kirah Julian (3rd), Chano Paul (1st), Kaleah Sack (2nd) and Eugene Obomsawin (1st) on finishing in the top three during the MK Chapel Island Science Fair.  Well done all!!!!
