WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THE SCHOOL
In the Kinder classes students are having fun building, being scientists and playing on our brand new giant Snakes and Ladders game on the yard.
Primary classes have been watching butterflies hatch as well as working on lots of numeration skills!! You can hear the grade 2's and 3's practicing all of their French sounds as you walk by the classroom!!
In the junior hallway there has been a lot of talk about "A Good Egg" and "A Bad Seed." We have also seen some Science work displayed about the Skeletal System. Intermediates are working hard getting back into many numeracy concepts. Next week our Intermediate students will take turns reading the announcements every morning. Great work is happening!!
The yard is busy with all of our zones of play. Our classes are taking turns playing daily in each of the zones. This would be a great time to ask your child where their favourite place to play is!

ORANGE SHIRT DAY - September 30th
This year, we will honour the survivors and the victims of residential schools on Wednesday, September 30th across our board through activities, knowledge-sharing and reflections. This work is meant to honour both the survivors, those who didn't survive, and those who suffer from inter-generational trauma inflicted upon Indigenous peoples through the residential school system.
A letter will be sent home via our email system with more in-depth description and information for families.
