We all fit together!

Check out our new display near the resource centre. Each student has created a puzzle piece to show how each is unique, but we all fit together.

Our Grade 6/7 and 7/8 students had a very successful week building a shelf and then designing and building a box. Students demonstrated problem solving skills, collaboration, and persevrance throughout the week. It was also great to see the hands on application of Math! Well done Grizzlies.

Lots of adults made this week possible....A big thanks to our teachers Ms. Onyskiw and Ms. Wyatt for trying something new, Mr. Raby, our Guidance Teacher for leading the way, our placement students Ms. Peters and Mr. MacKay, our awesome EAs, Mrs. Tweedy and Mrs. Lancaster, our supportive caretaker Mr DeBoer, and our volunteer for the week, Brian McEwen.
