Hot Lunch Order – error

Please note when ordering hot lunches for your child/children that October 1st is a School Goals Day and there will not be classes. When the program was set up, it was a mistake to have milk available for that day. Once the schedule comes to me on Monday, September 24th after 8 am when everyone has ordered I will go in and delete that day and anyone who has ordered milk on that day will have it credited on their account.

Sports Update:

Boys Soccer: 

Unfortunately we did not have enough bodies to field a team this year, however with the majority of interested players being in grades 6 & 7, I have high hopes for the school to be able to field a team next year!

Girls Soccer:

Congratulations to Kate Bell in grade 7 for making the Girls Soccer team at KISH! Good luck this season Kate, make Somerset PROUD!

Cross Country:

Cross Country practices have begun! We practice every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 12:00 until 12:20.  Please make sure if your child is practicing that they have proper running shoes and a water bottle, as well as appropriate clothing for running.

Our Zones meet is on October 9th at Cabot Park, and we will travel by bus to get there.  All participants that make provincials (Top 20 in each category), are EXPECTED to represent our school at provincials on October 20th.  If you know that you can not attend provincials on October 20th if you make it, we ask that you do not go to the Zones meet either.  Transportation to Provincials is provided by the parents of the student.  Any questions, please speak to Mrs. Walsh.

Tim Horton’s Camp for Grade 6, 7 & 8 Students – September 11-14th

Back to school has some added excitement this year as our grade 6, 7 and 8 students will be heading off to the Tim Horton Community Leaders Program in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, from September 11 – 14. A big thank you to all the families who completed the camp forms back in that last busy week of June. Unfortunately, we have to do that part all over again! The camp has notified us this week that the forms they provided us with in June were newly drafted forms that they expected to be using this fall; however, since they haven’t been officially approved yet, the camp cannot officially use them.

On the first day of school, Thursday, September 6, all students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will be given all the required documents that need to be completed and returned to the school the next day. Please note that information regarding dietary requirements and allergies has been sent to the camp so that the kitchen can begin planning for our visit; however, the new forms will still need to be completed, and any new information we receive regarding special dietary needs will be forwarded along asap.


Use this list as a suggested guide for a late fall/winter/early spring packing list for your Community Leaders Program experience. Before your trip, be sure to check the forecast and pack for the weather. It is best to label each item of clothing with the participant’s name.

 3-4 short sleeved t-shirts

 1-2 long sleeved shirts

 1-2 warm sweaters or sweatshirts

 2-3 pairs of long pants

 4 pairs of underwear

 3-5 pairs of socks

 1 pair of pajamas

 1 pair of boots (warm and waterproof are best!)

 2 towels

Water Test

The recent water test at Somerset has come back with the recommendation to not drink our water so we are getting water coolers and bottled water until further notice.  Washing the hands with the tap water is fine.
