The Breadlady Visits Pre-Kindergarten
Our Pre-Kindergarten students were fortunate enough to have The Breadlady, AKA Kaycee Monteleone, present to the group and teach everyone how to make delicious, healthy bread.
Grade Two - Boats and Buoyancy
The grade twos had to build a boat that could move (air, water, wind, propeller) through the water and then carry a load of washers without tipping. A variety of materials were used and you can see many creative approaches to their boat building skills. They also made plasticene boats and were floating them with and without a load.

In celebration of Family Literacy Day our school community took part in the Read for 15 Challenge. Students found a comfortable spot, their favourite book and read for 15 minutes.
Shaving Cream Snowmen
Pre-Kindergarten students had a blast today creating snowmen using shaving cream and glue combined.
Grade 3 Pumpkin Investigation and Carving
Mrs. Hebert and Ms. Lacombe's grade 3 class spent time investigating pumpkins. They weighed, measured and made predictions of their pumpkins before carving them into Jack-o''-lanterns.
Mrs. Hoffer's Pre-Kindergarten class enjoyed pumpkin carving with the help of Mrs. Clarke's Gr. 9 class this week.
Pre-Kindergarten students and parents experienced fabric dying together during a family oriented session. All students went home with their dyed shirt.

March Maker Space Month
Students explored various maker space stations in the Learning Lounge this past week. All stations were self-directed encouraging students to tinker, problem solve, create and most importantly work together. Whether they were disassembling printers, creating a wind tunnel or manipulating Spheros all students were intently engaged. Kudos to all staff involved in creating such a fun and educational space.
Making Bread with The Breadlady
During a Family Oriented Program the Pre-kindergarten class had a visit from Kaycee Monteleone AKA The Breadlady. Students were taught how to mill the grain and all took home a small loaf of bread they made.
Students were feeling the beat during a POUND class lead by Char Andrew, our Health and Wellness Coordinator, during Phys. Ed. class yesterday. Students in kindergarten through to grade nine were able to experience POUND during Phys. Ed. Special thanks to Mrs. Andrew for leading a fun and upbeat phys. ed. class.
