      Here are some interesting things to keep up to date on at Esgenoôpetitj School this month…


   Mi’kmaq facts for the month… The Migtjitj (turtle) carries truth because it is one of the oldest animals on our planet, it is said to have witnessed creation. The Migtjitj is grounded, methodical, careful, and attentive to details- important qualities to those who speak the truth.


   We know that Halloween just happened and there are a lot of treats at home, but we ask that these please stay at home. We are a candy free zone. 


   A quick reminder about Lunch and Goody Cart. A menu is sent home each week detailing the meals that are offered at the school for $ 2. If your child does not like these items, please send a healthy lunch. Classroom teachers also provide goody cart for 50 cents a day.
