Ms Burns Gr 9 French Immersion Math and Science

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I am pleased to announce that we have acquired a recent graduate of St. FX to complete the school year for the Grade 9 French Immersion Math and Science courses. Her name is Ms. Burns. She has a Bachelor of Science with a major in math and curriculum methods in secondary French. She is very excited and pleased to be given this opportunity and has been preparing since Thursday when she arrived at the school to see the classes she would be working with.

Ms. Burns has a lot of experience working with students in many extra-curricular activities that should assist her in making connections with her students. She is looking forward to having a productive working relationship with all her students. As yet, she does not have an HRSB email address but she can be contacted by leaving a message at the main office.

Along with the staff, we welcome Ms. Burns to Sackville High.

The Nova Scotia International Student Program, through the Halifax Regional School Board, is
looking for families to host international students in their home. Our students come from many
different countries around the world, and stay a duration of 3, 5, to 10 months.
This is a wonderful opportunity to expose your family to another culture, and help a visiting
student adapt to our culture. Quite often the friendships developed from hosting an
international student, last a lifetime. Hosting an international student is a great way to show
school support, and add valuable diversity to our community.
There is 24/7 support from a local homestay coordinator throughout the hosting period, and
your family will receive a monthly stipend to help offset the cost of hosting a student. The Nova
Scotia International Student Program also holds monthly cultural events for the students, and
some events include invitations to host families. In addition, the NSISP holds an initial student
orientation to help the student with the adjustment into their new home, school, and
If you are interested in the opportunity to host a student, and would like more information on
this wonderful experience, please contact, Alison Richardson or call

Reloadable Zip Card

Chartwells has introduced a NEW and CONVENIENT way to purchase food at the school cafeteria with the Zipthru DINE WITH US Reloadable Card! Just like any gift card, a balance is loaded on a card and declines as purchases are made. The online function of this program provides convenience for parents to purchase, reload and monitor spending as well as set up an account to protect the remaining funds. In 4 easy steps you will be confident that your child has been provided with healthy meal options and a protected balance. This relieves the need for a packed lunch or carrying cash. Purchasing or reloading $100 or more will give you an ADDITION of 10% bonus dollars directly added to your balance. Visit to purchase an e-Certificate by email today. Present the printed e-Certificated to the cafeteria and receive a Zipthru card with the designated balance!

1. Load a balance on a card. We recommend loading online at using a credit card, but a card can be initially
loaded at the cash register as well.
2. You don’t need a physical Zipthru DINE WITH US card for initial load.
Simply purchase an e-Certificate online that allows you to load a
balance instantly without the physical need of a card. When purchase
is made online an e-mail will be sent immediately with an e-Certificate.
Simply print and present to the cashier at the cafeteria who will transfer
the balance to a card.
3. Each time the card is used to make a purchase, the amount of the purchase is
deducted from the balance on the card. A balance is printed at the bottom of each
