Pjilita'q Mi'kmaw Language - Elementary

Kew! (Hello)

Me’Katu taleyin Kiskuk? How are you?

It is the end of the school year already. We had such a great time in Mi’kmaq class this year. We learned many new words. I would like to thank Kelly and Sharon for all their help during the Tea party we had. That was a great turn out!

Wela’lin to every person that came to our Pitewey Party. It was a great success. Hope to have a better one next year. Have a wonderful and safe summer. Go swimming, hiking and camping, enjoy the outdoors. 

Nemu’tes app!  See you Again!

Some photos of the Pitewey/Tea Social for grades primary to five.

On My 7th, 8th and 9th our students in grade primary to five hosted a piteway social for their parents/guardians/family.  Students were very excited to share a beverage and some blueberry cake with their guest(s) while sharing their knowledge of the Mi'kmaw language.  Wela'lioq to everyone who attended.

Easter is over, April is over, and we have only a few more months of school left before summer break. I would like to wish “Kiju” a Happy Mother’s day. Weli-Kiju-Na’kwekm. The last few months I hope we get to go outside a bit more. We also hope to host, a tea party for all parents in Mi’kmaq class this coming month. We hope to get to dance outside and play some Mi’kmaq games. Everyone have a great month!
