Our school's big idea this year is "How Can You Use Your Voice to Change the World?" and this theme is being woven into the tasks that teachers create for their students. Our Remembrance Day assembly was filled with eamples including the poignant songs that Mrs. Fatica chose for the choir to sing. Grade 6 students shared letters they wrote to Canadians who are in the service, and Sergeant Michael Malroney spoke about the importance of Remembrance Day. Other examples include the Grade 6 students using the money that they earned selling pizza at the dance for their social action initiatives. And, the grade 2 and 3 classes just shared with their famillies their Celebration of Learning that explored the quality of life in the Bridlewood community.
