On November 2nd 2016, the grade 9’s are off to bring your kid to work day. This allows them to experience a day on the work field, and learn more about the job they may want to have as life goes on. As a grade 11 student, I participated in this event 2 years ago. It was a great experience for me I learned a lot.
It has been an exciting season and a breath of fresh air this fall but unfortunately, it is the end of the year for Tommies football. After winning the first River Bowl against MVHS, they lost in the first round of the playoffs against Oromocto High. Even though they were playing in the rain and the cold, the Tommies gave it their all right to the bitter end.
The boy’s hockey team faced off against Sussex Friday night at the LBA. The Tommies were in the lead going in to the third by a score of 2-1 with Matt Carroll and Jon Russell scoring. With the lead the going in to the third the team played their best hockey of the game with Tyler Hartt scoring half way threw the period. Andrew lanteinge took care of the rest as the Tommies won 3-2.
Think you can beat Carey Price? Well you can prove yourself by purchasing tickets take three shots on a cardboard cut-out of NHL superstar, Carey Price. You can buy tickets at lunch, or see any of the teachers and the tickets will cost one dollar each. The first prize was $50.00 and unfortunately, no one scored so far.

Also, on November 11th there will be a Remembrance Day ceremony that is open to the public, starting at about 11am. You will be able to purchase poppies around Miramichi for a donation. On the 10th our school (JMH) will be giving out poppies around the school to the students and staff for a cost of 2$. We will get called down to the auditorium in the morning and stay there until before lunch.
Every Friday during lunch, there are a few students who travel upstairs to room 571, Mrs. MacDonald's room. They talk about the books they're currently reading and they even suggest some awesome books for the others to read. As of now, Mrs. MacDonald is trying to find us a set of books to read together. Don't be shy, join us upstairs! It's a fun club to be in and I suggest you join us if reading is your favorite hobby!
