We are authors!

May 30th, 2022

One of the big pleasures of teaching Grade One is seeing the children become readers and writers. We have completed our Story Unit and the stories are delightful. I have created a Writing Portfolio for each child so you can see their progression! It will be coming home soon!

Greenhouse Fundraiser

May 26th, 2022

We are excited for our Greenhouse Fundraiser on Friday! We will have basketball games to watch as well as some interactive skills challenges for the younger ones between games. There will be pizza for sale as well as concession treats! Due to this even being outside of school hours, all students Grade 6 and under must either be accompanied by an adult or by a sibling/family friend Grade 9 or older. We hope to see you and your family there!

We had a great time baking cookies this morning! A great big thank you to the parents who sent cookie dough to school.
