What's Happening.....in 4CE?

News, highlights, information and all things awesome!

Welcome to Spark Learning at Ross Drive!

We're learning how to write...better!

A look at how we write sparked a series of mini-lessons and a workshop on sentences VS. fragments. We also learned how to make our sentences far more "descriptive" by adding more mighty adjectives. Our next step is to apply what we've learned when we embark our "Me-Box" inquiry task.

Thanks Mrs. Miller-Wood and Mrs. Pratt for showing your school spirit!

Our first annual Terry Fox run was a massive hit with several hundred dollars raised in support for Terry's cause. We fought cancer through a run past Mayfield Secondary School, a fun play day and then a spirited assembly.
