Sackville Heights Junior High

October 3rd, 2022

We would like to begin by acknowledging that we are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship”.

We also acknowledge that people of African ancestry have been in Nova Scotia for over 400 years.

Our Sacred Teaching for today is Truth
“If you cannot find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?”

This is WEEK 1
Today is Monday, October 3

Treaty Day, (which was on October 1st) marked the beginning of Mi'kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia. This year the theme is Mi’kmaw Beadwork & the Art of Beading. Take some
time this month to look at some of these beautiful crafts and study their history.

Cross Country practice today from 2:45-3:45  meet in the cafeteria at the bell.

Reminder to the girl’s soccer team that they play at 3:30 at HTB today.  Players can drop down on their regularly scheduled lunch to pick up their jersey.   

The Boy’s soccer team will play at 4:40 at HTB. There will be a quick meeting for the boys team in the library at the beginning of second lunch.

This will be the last week students can sign up for the girls and boys volleyball teams.  If interested, please be sure to fill out the online form.  Stay tuned for tryout times.  

All performers for Aladdin are reminded to come to the cafeteria after the second bell after school. They are also reminded to arrange their drives for 4:15. This is for people on stage only, not backstage.

Any members of the Fall Mural Club with submissions
need  to bring them to Mr. Carruthers after the announcements. Stay tuned for this week’s schedule.

Reminder: Grade Seven and Eight students cannot be down in the grade 6 wing visiting during the day.

Have a Marvelous Monday  SHJH!
