Well, well, well.  It is the beginning of a new school year.  I am sure that many of you are just as excited to be back as I am. By the way, where did the summer go??

I am proud to be back working on our school newsletters and our school website.  FYI… the newsletters are posted on our website for your convenience, but if you would like a hard copy, just let me know and I will make sure you receive one. Forward a request to me via your child.

September is going to be especially busy for us with all the upcoming activities. Can’t wait to take photos of the events. Also, photos and videos are also posted on the website.

Now, before I forget, I would like to congratulate my fellow classmates (Ms. Kelly Oliver, Ms. Helena Sack, Ms. Tabetha Stephens and Ms. Carol Howe) on completing the Masters in Education course.  It was a long two years, but we did it!!  Yay us!

Welcome Back Everyone!!

May is over and it was such an exciting month.  Thank you to Ms. Tania Gould for hosting our first Mi’kmaw Pitewey Social for the parents/guardians of students in grades Primary to five.  Everyone did a great job and it was nice to see many parents/guardians in attendance.  Our students were very honoured to have their family be a part of their learning. Great job everyone.

The month of May also saw students participate in a Pollinator workshop learning about which plants to grow in order to support our pollinators.  Elephant Thoughtsreturned to do some Energyand Wacky Scienceworkshops for all grades.

It was also so nice to see our students learning about bass fishing and conservation.  I only wish I was able to go fishing with them.  And the month ended with Drum Making workshops.  We will be celebrating the creations of these drums with a community feast held in the Sipekne’katik Mawio’mi Arbor to be held in June.

In closing, I want to wish all the best to our graduates.  I hope you have a wonderful day and I can’t wait to see you at the prom; need to take some pictures of everyone dressed up. Thank you to students and staff for another great year and I hoped everyone enjoyed reading this monthly newsletter as much as I enjoyed our achievements and great times.  Finally, thank you to Ms. Kelly Oliver for doing a great job this first year as our Principal.  Here’s to many more!!

Winter Carnival is always so much fun, especially after a very busy few months of school.  Thanks to the committee for their hard work in organizing so much fun, engaging activities.  I especially enjoyed the movies.  I was also able to attend the art gallery field trip with the Grade Three class.  We saw some beautiful creations that I hope have inspired some of our budding artists.

March Break was very nice and I was glad for it.  Not only did it give me a break from work, but I also got a break from my schoolwork. One more class and I will have another course completed!!  See, learning never stops.

When we returned back to work on Monday (March 25th) all staff was able to participate in a Healing workshop.  I want to thank Ms. Kelly Oliver for requesting the session and to Ms. Velvet Paul for supplying each classroom with a smudging kit.  The teaching that Cpl. De-Anne Sack shared with us was very empowering.  Now we will be able to offer our students the opportunity to participate in a smudge if they feel the need.  And it was an especially wonderful presentation because De-Anne agreed to spend her 50thbirthday here at school sharing her knowledge.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a blessed and peaceful Easter.
