Grade 3 Building Playgrounds
Grade 3 students learning all about designing, and purchasing supplies as they build their playgrounds.
Yoga & Fruit in Pre-Kindergarten
Pre-Kindergarten students had the opportunity to attend a free parented yoga session during one of the family-oriented programming days. This session offered the chance for pre-kindergarten students to lead in a variety of moves and included individual poses as well as poses that required partners. It was nice to have the teachers take part as well. Everyone finished the session by sharing a delicious and healthy tray of fruit together.
Volleyball Pep Rally
To wrap up a successful volleyball season both the boys and girls teams challenged the staff to a fun game of volleyball. The final score ended with tied games for all. Students showed their support by cheering on all volleyball players.
Ms. Lacombe, one of our grade 3 teachers, turned her classroom into Hogwart's to enhance her student's learning as they read Harry Potter during a unit in Language Arts. The students went through the experience of wearing the "sorting hat" to find out what "house" they would belong to. Whether they ended up in Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff I'm sure they will have loads of fun while embarking through the adventure of Harry Potter.
Grade 7 Anishinaabe X-ray Art
Grade sevens spent a considerable amount of time creating and painting their own Anishinaabe x-ray art. The detail in their paintings is incredible. During social and language arts they also wrote about a legend relating to their x-ray art.

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.
