Happy Victoria Day Weekend!

Enjoy the extra long weekend with your family and friends as there is no school on Monday!

May Umbrella Theme

We continue to explore the Umbrella themes each month and students are starting to build their own personal umbrellas – being able to use various strategies to help them deal with struggles they may face in their lives.  Throughout the month of May, we will be exploring the theme of Integrity. Take a minute to read the attached article that can be found at the link below. It has some great activities for your children around Integrity.

Jump Rope for Heart

What a fantastic day for our annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser! We lucked out with fantastic weather and were able to enjoy the sunshine as we supported this very worthwhile cause. And the students had a blast to boot participating in the various activities! Thanks goes out to Mrs. Campbell for her hard work in organizing this awesome event!

Rocket Science Workshop

The grade 6 students from Mr. Kropf’s and Ms. Shermeto’s classes were able to participate in a Rocket Science workshop at the school on Tuesday. They were given lessons in rocket science, rocket building and team work from Mr. Turner. A great time was had by all and the students were thrilled when their rockets went into orbit!

KW Humane Society Classroom Visits

We were also very fortunate to have Mac and “his human” visit some classes last week to help our Dragons learn about Pet Safety. There were lots of great questions and information shared, and all benefited from this great interaction.

Math Matters!

Can you solve this? Can you move only 3 coins and turn the triangle upside down?
