If we were to sum up the Grade Six Leaving Ceremony in a few words- it would be individuality and acceptance. Students were encouraged to let their light shine and shine they did!  Musical presentations included “We are Stars”, “Everything is Awesome” and  “Hold on to Memories.”  See the full program above. Thank you so much, Ms. Suter, Ms. Grandy and Grade Six teachers for all of your guidance.

Another year in Track and Field

If there is such a thing as a proud coach, it is Ms. Hutchings, Grade 5 Teacher.  To celebrate the the year of Track and Field, she created a Smilebox presentation showcasing the events as well as each child’s accomplishments.  Go ahead, view it and enjoy!  Thank you, students for making us all so proud.

Grade One Butterflies

Science came to life today for two Grade One French Immersion groups when students witnessed butterflies, that they raised, take flight.  The project was part of the Life Cycles unit in their Science Program.  How exciting for everyone, including the teachers!  Science has that magical gift of making one feel like a kid again.  Thank you, Mme Moores and Mme Sweetapple for these wonderful activities.
