Primary

Kwe, 

The primary class is very excited about the arrival of spring! The longer, sunny days are very welcomed after the long winter! We have been very busy in our classroom, from reading books and learning new words to singing songs! We are exploring with water and weight in math class, the students have been having lots of fun filling buckets and containers! The students were excited to tour through the new cultural trail behind our school, they were able to view the sap as it came from the maple trees, then we stopped to listen to Greg Marr as he explained how the sap was made into syrup. The kids were amazed! We are looking forward to getting outside more with the nicer weather. Please remember to send boots and rain gear on rainy days so we can enjoy the outdoors with the spring weather! The students would like to wish everyone a very Happy Easter and birthday wishes go out to A’mya, Kendra & Ms. Angie who will be celebrating their birthdays in April! 

Happy Easter, 
Mrs. Brooks & Mrs. Levi

The primary students have been very busy throughout the month of February. We have been doing lots of reading and learning new things. We were very excited to share special Valentine's with our friends and lots of sweet treats to eat on Valentine's day! The students noticed how fast the month of February has gone by, I told them time flies when you're having fun! We are excited for winter carnival week in March, then March break. We will be looking out on March 1st to see if March comes in like a lion or lamb. What do you think it will be? We would like to wish Alexis a very happy birthday in March! Stay safe everyone!

We are very happy to be back in the classroom and back to our routine of in class learning! The students have been enjoying learning lots of new things, reading, writing, and creating! We have been working on counting in math, reading books about winter animals such as the polar bear, penguins and animals that we see in throughout the winter months locally. We celebrated the end of January with a teddy bear picnic, the students made bear puppets in lieu of bringing stuffed toys from home due to Covid safety protocols. The students learned about healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables and chose the snacks to share. We played musical chairs and had a wonderful picnic. We are excited to see if the groundhog will see his shadow or not on February 2nd, be sure to watch out for Shubenacadie Sam! The students are hoping for more snow in February, be sure to remind your children to bring their snow gear to school so they can enjoy the colder weather during recess. If February we will be making an offering to the spirit of Apukanajit, asking that we stay warm and not freeze during the winter, and have enough clothing and food. We will also ask the spirit of Apukanajit to protect us and all who travel during the remaining winter months. We will also be having a Valentine’s day party in February and will be sending out Valentine’s day wishes to all our friends and family! Take care and stay safe!

We are very excited to have everyone returning to our classroom this month. It has been a very long break and I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas with their families and loved ones. 

We are looking forward to begin in class learning, the staff at LSK has been busy learning and planning this past week and we hope to see everyone here and ready to learn. 

We will be following the same safety procedures as before, the students did very well following our new way of learning at LSK and I hope that we can all work together to make sure our students are safe and healthy in the new year. 

I would like to wish Dayton and Caylee a very happy birthday this month, and a happy new year to everyone!

The primary students have been learning lots of new things this past month! They were very excited to learn about the Smak’nis who fought for our freedom, especially the ones that were their family members! We have been doing lots of focus on letters and sounds and putting them together to make words. They were very excited to put their new skills to work as they begin to write about their drawings! We were all very sad to learn that we will be moving to virtual learning, However, we are thankful that it is an option! I am looking forward to seeing all my students online during the upcoming weeks, I hope that technology works for everyone and we get to see each other’s faces and hear each other’s voices!

I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Primary had their classroom party.

The Primary class has been very busy learning lots of new things this past month. We have been learning about numbers in Math, we do lots of counting every day. We tell stories about numbers and make sets of numbers. In literacy we are learning our letters and the sounds they make. The students love learning the new sounds and letters. We would like to remind families to help students identify letters in their environment, around the house or while they're out and about. Our sacred learning for the month of October was courage, our students have been showing lots of courage while adjusting to the routines of school, some meeting new friends for the first time, and others who may be shy and are becoming more comfortable around their classmates! Great job Primary students! We have been discussing how brave and courageous the Sma'knis must have been while fighting in the war, we will remember all those brave Sma'knis on November 11, Remembrance Day. We would like to wish Sicily and Arellaina a happy birthday in November!

Kwe everyone, 

I would like to welcome everyone to the month of October! September went by very quickly with lots of exciting things taking place. We welcomed students back to school, with a lot of different COVID rules and precautions set in place! The primary students have been doing very well with following these rules from wearing masks, to sanitizing their hands regularly. They are adjusting to the routines of school very well! 

We celebrated Nitap day with our class, sharing ways to be kinds and helpful! We are looking forward to learning about our Treaties and promises throughout October and all throughout the year! We will also be honouring our Residential School survivors on Orange Shirt day, September 30th, Please take time to share your knowledge about Treaties and residential schools with your children, they will be very excited to listen to your stories. 

I would like to remind families to make sure students are returning the water bottles after being washed and filled at home, our water fountains are not accessible at this time. Students are also reminded to bring their lanyards back each day as well, it makes storing their masks when not in use easier. We would like to wish everyone a Happy Treaty Day and a Happy Thanksgiving Giving! 

Mrs. Brooks
