National Aboriginal Day

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.

Heartbeat

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?

Our Kindness Boomerang

Inspired by Pink Shirt Day, Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) week, the Kindness Boomerang video by Life Vest Inside, and our study of the “One Smile” story, our class set out last week to create our own kindness boomerang. All acts of kindness were thought of by our class and were filmed in one shot! We hope you enjoy 🙂

Carnaval 2017

It was a great day to celebrate our annual Carnaval de Québec with the high school French students. A big thank you to the French students, who ran our stations, and Mrs. Taggart for organizing a fun event! Here are some of the highlights:

Skating Party

We got a special treat at the end of last week to wrap up our time with skating – a skating party in our neighbourhood outdoor rink! A BIG thank you to Mrs. Sharpe, Summer’s family, and all of our amazing parent volunteers for helping us with this fun event!

Frolicking Friday Balloon Adventures

We decided to try out some experiments in the snow last week on Frolicking Friday. We really were not sure what would happen!

We also tried out snowshoeing. Can’t wait for next time!

What happened with your balloon experiments out in the snow?

Have you ever gone snowshoeing before?
