Term 2 Update:

With Spring Break just a few days away I am reflecting on what a busy term this has been especially these past few weeks. We eased in to the first month of the year with a relatively slow start and a few very positive class presentations entitled ‘Stand by Me’. The presenter for these is Theresa Triggiano and the presentations are powerful class discussions around peer respect, positive social relationships, and specifically bullying. Our grade 5/6 students all went through these whole class sessions with much healthy conversation. There was a school wide cultural event entitled ‘Project Soul’ a HipHop group made up of 4 young dancers whose talents our students enjoyed watching.
Our grade 7 Immersion Students made their way to Quebec City where they were immersed in the Quebecios culture and learned a great deal about the history of french settlers to Canada.  In February our grade 6 and 7 basketball teams were practicing and playing games. All our teams were very successful winning most of their season games and our grade 7 ’s faired very well at the district tournament placing second with only one loss.

Thank you to our parent coaches Darcy Williams (Grade 7 Boys), Jennifer O’Hearn/ Todd Schierling (Grade 6/7 Girls) and Mr Grewal (Grade 6 Boys). Science fair was another busy event that took place through the month of February.With many of our students moving on to the district event at Scottsdale Mall, Wednesday, March 11. Our students represented the school well with many students winning gold and silvers in their categories. One of our lucky students, Sydney in grade 5, won the grand prize of a bike. Well done  everyone!
We have also been practicing for the district Hoop Shoot tournament over the past several weeks. That tournament was held March 11 and again all our students represented the school very well with both grade 5 teams winning first place and  our grade 6 boys and grade 7 girls awarded second place ribbons. Well Done !


Our track and field will start up upon our return in early April as well we will be hosting our annual Half Marathon beginning the first week back.  Students in grades 3-7 are encouraged to get involved with this fun event.  We will be running 2 or 3 days per week at 11:45 just prior to lunch.
We wish you all a very happy and relaxing Spring Break.
