The beautiful month of October had many highlights we would like to share. Classrooms were abuzz with such excitement about the learning that continues to take place. From building volcanoes through chemical reactions to building reading stamina; learning strategies for mental math, designing VideoScribes about recycling, pumpkin visual representation of text, drama presentations, a Social Studies based Amazing Race, building simple machines with LittleBits, nature photography, making salsa and the beginnings of building cardboard boats for the NAIT races. All of that and then the extracurricular activities that abound! No wonder our number of lates has decreased dramatically! We cannot wait to have you join us on December 4 for our Demonstration of Learning when your children can walk you through their projects.
November looks to be a continuation of exciting learning opportunities and activities. Students will attend WE Day in Calgary on November 3. They will kick off our Social Justice Fundraising Project centered on building a Sister Annata Brockman classroom in Burundi. Check out the Development and Peace website that will highlight the work our students are involved in. We will hold our Remembrance Day Service at 9:00am November 7 and we would love to have you join us. We will have coffee for you in the foyer at 8:25 so you can wait with us as we gather in the gym. Please remember that there will be no school on Monday and Tuesday, November 10 and 11. Matt Jenereaux will be here on November 28 for coffee during drop off. Please stop by and share your views with him.
