ANNOUNCEMENTS Monday, October 20, 2014
Here is your Mi’kmaq History month fact of the day. The traditional concepts of respect and sharing that form the foundation of the Aboriginal way of life are built around the 7 sacred teachings. Each teaching is accompanied by a sacred animal. Every day, for the next 7 days we will be sharing one of these teachings.
We will be recognizing honours and high honours students from the 2013-2014 school year tomorrow in the morning. Award certificates will be handed out for students who achieved honours or high honours. Students will be called down by grade and category of award during this time.
