Students will be attending this assembly on First Nations Culture for the morning. This is a cultural and social gathering including drumming, dancing, and song.
Because of the end time of the assembly, we are asking K-2 students to bring a bag lunch on Friday as they will not be using the cafeteria on this day. It would also be helpful if their snack was labelled with their name so the teacher can hang on to it for them.

Nelson Rural had a great visit from the JMH Tommies! They came to read to our students and gave out a published Tommie book to each homeroom classroom. They also had gifts for the students and gave them each a colouring book! We would like to thank JMH Tommies for coming and sharing kindness with our students. They came to greet our young Tommies and the students were very excited to see the Mascot as well!
Thank you again for spreading Kindness to our students especially before the holidays! See the full image gallery for more photos!
