Sackville Heights Junior High

December 15th, 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 Honesty
“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom”

This is WEEK 1
Today is Thursday, December 15

There will be a pre-holiday celebration for the Fruit Basket crew during second lunch today in room 152. See you there!

The grade 8 leadership students have arranged a mini Holiday theme week.  We will start tomorrow with RED and GREEN DAY, next Monday will be UGLY SWEATER DAY and Tuesday will be HOLIDAY THEME (wear anything holiday related, Christmas PJ’s, Santa hats, reindeer antlers etc.)

Don’t forget that tomorrow is our last day to raise money for the food bank in our community.  We are so proud of how generous staff and students have been this year.  We are so close to reaching 2000 today.
