Today we celebrated Aboriginal Education. Although the name may be changing, the goal of the day – to celebrate and acknowledge the first people on this land, remains the same. Mrs. Keiver put together a fantastic morning of activities complete with games, stories, art projects, and yummy bannock. Which station did you enjoy the most?
Our Science Fair this year was dedicated to Mrs. Driscoll, who has been the heart and soul behind our Science Fairs for many years at our school.
Mrs. Driscoll has been at our school the entire time that you have been here. She looks after all of us and our school in so many ways. Tell me about something you love about Mrs. D. or something you would like to thank her for doing for you and our school.
Our class has been working SO hard to finish up science boards, take care of our plants, and create a food connection to their project. Here is a sample of how we made our projects (written by Makaia, picture of Lark):

To celebrate 10 years of the coding program, Scratch, and to show off our coding skills to the rest of the school and our parents, we had a Scratch Fair today along with the other grade 3’s and the grade 1’s!
It was great to see everyone sharing their projects, learning new things, and helping others. Way to go, grade 3’s!
What did you do at the Scratch Fair?
What could we add to the Scratch Fair to make it better next time?
To celebrate Earth Day this year our school met up with the neighbouring K-3 school where we played our drums, all made out of recycled materials, together. All 360 students played the heartbeat and some other beats as well. It was a very special experience. A big thank you to Mrs. Driscoll and Mrs. Keiver for making this happen!
What is your favourite beat to play on your drum?
How can you do something to take care of the Earth?
