Gibsons Museum becomes our classroom

Mrs. Sali had her class at the Gibsons Museum this past week. The museum staff and volunteers worked with our students to provide an excellent week of learning.

The students had a great week. Thanks to the parents that assisted walking with the class to and from the museum daily.

Have an awesome weekend everyone.

Grade 7 students working on their stars

The grade 7 students got their hands messy this afternoon, while working on their stars. These stars will be used in the Grade Seven Leaving Ceremony.

Thanks to parent volunteer, Shirley Waite, for helping organize this event.

I have posted other photos on the Flickr Photostream to the left.

A Mid-Summer Night's Dream

Ms. Duncan's Division 1 class is preparing for their annual Shakespeare play-- this year it will again be, A Mid-Summer Night's Dream. As you can see by the photos the students do a variety of tasks-- the set crew was busy working on parts of the set, while the actors were practicing at the other end of the gym. I look forward to their production. I will post when they will be performing.

Enjoy the great weather!

Until tomorrow.
