Ms Rooney and her grade three classes have started a book exchange. They have applied for an entrepreneurial grant, we’re so proud of them and the school is loving the books! Way to go !
Mr. Santella & Ms. Rooney took advantage of the beautiful weather and went outside to snowshoe.
This week we had a mime visit grade 1-6 as part of our drama program. The kids really enjoyed it… and were impressive mimes!
Yesterday Mme Chantal and Mr Chan brought their students to Riverdale for Comic Con. The kids loved it!
We were lucky enough to have Lisa from Dare to Care at our school for K-4 this week.
Grade 3 has been working on developing the value of respect. Over the past month both classes have been working on being respectful behavior (listening attentively when others speak, being kind to each other, helping out peers, working cooperatively with each other). Each day the class worked towards earning a sticker with the objective of reaching 10 stickers. Today they earned their prize….a pyjama movie popcorn party!
On Friday Grade 3 classes were treated to a wonderful performance by a Mohawk dancer. The children learned about her life, and strong attachement to her ancestors. They also learn a dance titled the Crocodile dance. She performed a traditional hoop dance that is often danced at Pow-wows. A hoop dancer uses hoops to recreate different parts of nature and their lives. Can you recognize images?
