Spirit Week 2019

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!













Christmas Concert 2019

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


Sports Day 2019

Monday, November 4th, the Elementary School celebrated our annual Sports Day. The students participated in a variety of activities. They all tried their hardest and showed wonderful sportsmanship. Well done everyone!


3B Assembly: Stephanie’s Ponytail

The 3B Assembly

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.

The 3B students made connections between the events of Stephanie’s Ponytail and the school theme for the year:


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:


“I learned that we are all different people.”



“I learned that we shouldn’t be mean to others.”



“I learned that I should show kindness. If I like something someone has I should compliment them.”

Sakura Medal voting party

Many students in 3RB have taken on the challenge of reading the 2019 Sakura Medal books. Nine students from our class successfully read 5 or more of these books and were able to the voting party.

Congratulations everyone!





Japanese Culture Day

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.



Visiting Musician

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.

The Grade 3 students had the exciting opportunity to compose a song of their own! Check it out:





Fun Day: Benchball Tournament

For our January 25th Fun Day, the Grade 3 and 4 classes merged together into teams for a friendly Benchball tournament in the gymnasium. Each team had the opportunity to work together and compete in two energetic and competitive heats.

Thank you Grades 3 & 4 for your excellent sportsmanship!
