Thank you to our Evergreen families and parent council...because of you...the grade 2s were able to reach their goal of raising $1200 to fill 50 children's backpacks with mittens, toys, craft supplies, etc. for Stephen's Backpack Society.  These backpacks will be picked up and delivered to children living at the numerous shelters in and around Calgary.

Our class is filling 10. backpacks. We picked what age group and a boy/girl. Ask me who my group is shopping for. We made grocery lists, and had to go online to check how much the items were. We figured out things are expensive as we only have $25 per backpack.

Making a Splash!

Students looked at David Hockney’s California influenced pool paintings. The students were focusing on line, shape, and color while working on these. We also spent a good bit of time thinking about how our hair and body look different when submerged under water. The kids loved creating the look of weightlessness in their self-portrait. Hockney used interesting techniques to create the effect of light shining in on the water of his pool paintings and we tried to recreate that after our swimming lessons.
