Recently, 10 staff members attended a Google Summit weekend. This two-day high-intensity event focused on deploying, integrating, and using Google Apps for Education (and other Google tools) to promote student learning in K-12 and higher education. Teachers are excited to share their new found skills with our tech savvy learners.

Eco School Update
Congratulations to everyone who diverted used batteries from the landfill. Over 9,000 batteries were recycled during our used battery challenge. The top 3 classes will enjoy a pizza lunch.
Students will participate in a chalk walk on May 20th in order to inspire neighbours to "go green".

A Visit by the Ecobus!
The Ecobus is a mobile environmental and renewable energy education center located on a fully modified school bus! This mobile classroom showcases the use of waste vegetable oil as fuel, as well as solar and wind energy. Travelling from community to community, this bus offers unique environmental and renewable energy programs, and on site field trips, to schools, community groups, teachers and the general public.
Six of our classes were able to jump on board the bus and learn how to reduce our ecological footprint.
