Many schools are gathering fresh vegetables from their school gardens at this time of year. Somerset and District Elementary School recently held a Harvest Lunch for all students and many members of the school community, featuring pasta primavera made with vegetables from the school garden.

Two AVRSB teachers have received recognition for teaching excellence. Freda Larade, a French Second Language teacher at Evangeline Middle School, was awarded the Canadian Parents for French--Nova Scotia's French Second Language Educator of the Year Award for 2016. Laura Cole, a grade 11 teacher at Middleton Regional High School, is one of several recipients of the 2016 Government of Canada History Award, for her lesson plan exploring the people and symbols depicted on Canadian currency.

October 17-21, 2016 is School Bus Safety Week in Nova Scotia. Each fall, all grade Primary to 5 students receive school bus safety and bus evacuation training. Students are doing their part, so we ask motorists to work together with us to keep students safe! NEVER pass a school bus when its red lights are flashing; ALWAYS stop in both directions when a school bus has its red lights flashing.

Many schools and local fire departments have been working together to promote Fire Prevention Week in October, raising awareness of important safety messages for students and families. At Annapolis East Elementary School, students created posters reminding everyone to replace smoke detectors every 10 years, for a chance to become Fire Chief for the Day with the Middleton Fire Department.

Students at LE Shaw Elementary have been celebrating Mi’kmaq culture and history this month through art projects led by teacher Olivia Frampton. Students in grades 2 to 5 have been studying the colours of the medicine wheel and the history depicted in the many petroglyphs found throughout Mi'kma'ki, creating art inspired by what they've learned.

In recognition of Mi'kmaq History Month, Leanne Hudson and Kerwyn Currie of Annapolis West Education Centre, and Jessica Sylliboy of Horton High School performed the Mi'kmaq Honor Song at the October 5 Regular Board Meeting. Joining the students at the Board meeting were siblings, parents and AVRSB Native Student Advisors Marlene Joudry and Kelly Holleman, and Mi'kmaq Education Consultant Carrie Gloade. Wela'lin (thank you) for sharing your talents! 

Thank you to our school communities and local farmers for supporting Nourish Your Roots, a fundraiser organized by Nourish Nova Scotia.  More than 1,400 farm boxes were sold in nine AVRSB schools in the recent Thanksgiving campaign, raising about $12,300 to support healthy eating programs in those schools.

The new Bridgetown P-12 school project is progressing well, with over half of the building now roof-tight. Walls are going up, and exterior glazing and mechanical work is underway. The goal is to have the entire building roof-tight before the onset of winter weather. The new school is scheduled to open to students in September 2017.

Phase 2 of the Wolfville School renovation project is underway, with students and staff settling in to the newly-renovated elementary wing and addition completed during Phase 1 of construction. Principal Steve Keddy reports that the school community is enjoying the bright, welcoming atmosphere and technology available in the renovated areas.
