This week the Elementary School celebrated Spirit Week leading up to our Christmas holidays. Each day the students has a special theme to follow. Check out some of the wacky pictures from our fun filled week!
This year for the Christmas concert, Grade 3 created a human advent calendar. We collected boxes, decorated, and had many practices to be ready for the big day. If you missed the performance or would like to relive the holiday spirit of the evening, here is a link to the live stream performance: Christmas Concert 2019

This week, 3B class had the exciting opportunity to host an assembly. The students reenacted one of their favourite classroom stories, Stephanie’s Ponytail by Robert Munsch.

In the story, Stephanie’s classmates make fun of her hairstyles but the very next day they are copying her! Stephanie is frustrated and tricks her classmates into shaving their heads.
Here are some important lessons we have learned from this story:
March 22 was Japanese Culture Day! We had the opportunity to enjoy origami folding, top competitions, dress up, special assemblies, a potluck lunch, and aikido. Grade 3 even created some art to contribute to the celebratory day!
Thank you to the Japanese Department for organizing such a fantastic day.
Recently, musician/singer/songwriter Kathryn Claire visited the Elementary students to lead them in musical numbers and lessons in songwriting. The students enjoyed live music and learning about song writing.
