Grade 8 School Trip Monday June 24th

Re: Grade 8 Kejimkujik National Park

Dear families,

We are excited to be able to expose our grade 8 students to several activities at Keji National Park on Monday June 24, 2019.  We will leave SQMS shortly after homeroom and return for normal dismissal time at the end of the day.

Students are required to pack snacks, lunch and bring water.  Students also need sunscreen, bathing suit, towel and dry clothes.  Students should also dress to be active (sneakers, layer clothing).

There is no student cost for this trip. Please return signed permission form as soon as possible.

The trip will be supervised by grade 8 staff and administration.

Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.

Permission forms for Skills trade fair

Grade 8 students:

Please have all permission forms signed and returned by Monday, May 27th.  The green form needs to come back for you to able to participate in hands on activitied at the skill trade fair on Wednesday, May 29th. 

Track Postponed

Track and field events for today are postponed. VERY IMPORTANT - Thursday events STAY THE SAME, and will proceed as scheduled. That means that tomorrow is relay day. Students that have events planned for today will now be on Friday instead (for example - hurdles are now Friday). The organizers felt that this would impact that least amount of student travel. We will meet with the students today to go over the change. Please feel free to call the school with any questions.


We are pleased to share that Mrs. Sonya Cook won a National award for teaching excellence in Health and Physical eductaion this year.

Congratulations Mrs. Cook on your innovative work in health education.
