Hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the school year. Students are busy engaged in many land-based activities including environmental observations, butterfly life cycle and other culminating learning events as we approach the end of the school year.
Rotary Pancake Breakfast
Students and staff enjoyed our pancake breakfast and line dancing on May 26. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Calgary and all the volunteers for feeding over 650 staff and students on that morning!!
Open House Community Night
Our open house in May was a huge success. There was lots of food and treats provided by local food trucks, games and activities and performances that were enjoyed by all who attended. It was really nice to see so many families enjoying time with each other on such a great night.
As part of our Grade 4 Simple Machines unit we had 3 engineering consultant guest presenters from Wood PLC that encouraged and inspired our grade 4 students to consider pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, and math. Students asked questions and showed off their simple machine projects to our guest speakers. Wood PLC was so impressed with our students that they have donated $1000 to our school to invest in further STEM education opportunities for our students. Thank-you Wood PLC!!! And special thanks to our guest presenters Nathan, Sophia and Sajid!!!
School Patrol Celebration
I wanted to thank of our families who supported their children to be School Patrol volunteers all year. All of our patrols had a great day at Heritage Park on June 7 to acknowledge their effort, leadership and commitment to keeping our community safe during arrival and dismissal time. Way to go Patrollers!! Thanks to Ms. Gale and Ms. Shergill for organizing and supervising this celebration event for our Patrols.
