The story of the Three Little Pigs

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs/
La vraie histoire des trios petits cochons


Although just about all of us think that we know the story of the three little pigs, in this comical musical, A. Wolf clears up some misunderstandings. According to A. Wolf, we simply have not heard his side of the story — until now. While we may believe that the wolf, who visited the three little pigs huffed and puffed to blow the pigs’ houses down, it turns out that he simply had a bad cold and had a powerful sneeze. Who could blame him for eating the pigs that died when their houses fell as a result of his sneezing? Furthermore, the wolf was only visiting the pigs in the first place to borrow a cup of sugar to make a cake for his grandmother’s birthday. The pigs wouldn’t even give him any sugar! When the third pig insulted his grandmother, A. Wolf “got a little crazy.” The police found him trying to break down the pig’s door, and news reporters wrote the story that we have come to know.
Congratulations Grade 4 students on an amazing musical performance!!!

Carnival at Holy Family

Students in French Immersion celebrated Winter in honour of the Quebec Winter Carnival. First students watched a video and then they made Bonhomme pins to attached to their shirts. The highlight of the morning was the parade of costumes when French Immersion students strutted through the hallways wearing hockey jerseys, hats, glitter and canoes!  This isn’t a typo, it’s a fact.  English students got involved as well as they wore Bonhomme-like sashes and red outfits.  See the picture below of the Bonhomme paper bag craft that Ms.  Pitts’ class made.   Many thanks to the French Immersion teachers who organized the day.  They plan to make snow sculptures at a later date.  What a wonderful celebration!
