The grade 6-8 classes have been busy measuring, planning and designing many projects such as making picnic tables and designing a monster for their Kindergarten friends. The tables will be auctioned at our Spring Carnival on June 14 and the monsters were originally designed by the Kindergarten students then the older students interpreted the design to make a pattern then a monster stuffy. The back of the monster had a zipper pouch to store special trinkets!
We are so proud of our cross country runners who competed at the district Cross Country race this week. Mrs. Ralston and Mrs. Silverson (coaches) said the students were positive, supportive of their team mates and great ambassadors for our school. Congratulations to Laila who won first in her age division!
Come on out and cheer on our students on Wednesday May 1; first race at 10:30. We are welcoming our neighbour schools, Falkland and Salmon Arm West to join us in the competition and fun! Thanks to PAC for supplying a pizza lunch for all of us. We could use a few parent helpers to act as marshals on the road as our older runners run down Salmon River Road and Haines Road. Contact the school for more information.
Please plan to join us this Thursday April 18 at our annual Student Led Conference where students show you their learning so far this year. This is one of our informal reporting periods and is an important opportunity for your child to take initiative and showcase, for you, how they have been doing.
Please come at any time after 2pm. We will find a place for you and your child to work. If you can not join your child this time, please arrange a time when you can come in to go over your child’s portfolio of work.
The teachers decided it was a good idea to know how to teach children in all classes so every teacher greeted his or her new class at the door and brought them down to the morning assembly. Mr. Ralston even taught his Kindergarten class a song and performed it at the “Welcome Back to School” assembly. When the kids found out it was just a joke, some were relieved that their real teacher would continue to be their teacher for the rest of the year.
