We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, which is the traditional ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
From Ms. Mckay:
Happy Lunar New Year!
2021 is the year of the Ox, starting from February 12th until January 31st, 2022. It will be a Metal Ox year. The recent zodiac years of Ox sign are: 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, and 2021. An Ox year occurs every 12 years.
The ox, in Chinese culture, is a hardworking zodiac sign. It usually signifies movements so, hopefully, the world will be less static than last year and get moving again in the second half of the year.

Eagle Expectation: Students are reminded that, if they do not take a school bus to get home afterschool, they are to leave the property at dismissal. The parking lot is very busy with people, busses and other vehicles and it is becoming a safety hazard with too many walking students lingering in the front area of the school after dismissal.
