Honest is speaking and acting truthfully, and thereby remaining morally upright.
The Sabe represents honesty because it is closer to the Creator than to humans. It is believed that the Sabe used to walk among humans to remind us of the Creator's wish for us to remain true to our natural forms.
Actions such as being true to our spirit and accepting who we are will guide us in being honest.
Native people believe in the existence of the Sabe and honour it with acceptance and respect.
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.
