Thank You Macdonald Museum
Ms.Cole and her Canadian History Classes would like to thank the Macdonald Museum for facilitating a hands-on field trip. The Histoire du Canada 11 class was thrilled to be able to investigate real artifacts and contribute to the databases at the Museum. They researched objects such as a sampler from the 1700s, a painting, a lock cutter, moccasins, and glasses from the 1920s.
If you are looking for something to do this December with friends or family, check out the Holiday Escape Room at the Museum. It runs until Dec.14th. It is $2 per person and you have 15-20 minutes to solve the Grinch's puzzle or be trapped! Contact: 825-6116 for further info. The Museum is open Mon-Fri, 10:30am-4:00pm.
Middleton Rural High School Feeder Schools Project
Mr. AL Peppard, Principal of MRHS between 1966 and 1985 has begun a project to collect photographs of each of the schools from the 28 community school sections that transitioned students to Middleton Rural High School in 1949 when it first opened. Our intention is to collect and display these photographs in the Middleton Regional High School Library to preserve this bit of history. We are seeking photographs that we can scan to a digital format and return to the contributor or digital images themselves. Photos can be sent by e-mail to email@example.com or brought to MRHS to have them scanned and returned. The 28 school sections are listed below.
Bloomington, Brickton, Brooklyn, East Inglisville, Forest Glade, Margaretville East, Margaretville, Meadowvale, Melvern Square, Mosher’s Corner, Mount Hanley, Nictaux, East Nictaux, Nictaux Falls, New Albany North, New Albany South, North Williamston, Port George, Prince Albert, Spa Springs, South Farmington, South Williamston, Torbrook, Torbrook Mines, Torbrook East, Victoria Vale, Wilmot, and Outrum .

Nova Scotia School Insurance
As you may know the Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.
Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.
In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online, in an effort to take the eco-friendly route, reduce costs and staff time.
