Everyone seemed to enjoy Crazy Hair Day-- next Friday it is "Look Alike Day."

Have a great weekend everyone.

Math Group: IXL Geometry

I covered for Mrs. Murray this morning, as we were short a TOC. After working through numerical prefixes, a daily quiz and the problem of the week, students worked on an IXL Math program-- they worked on a geometry unit. The students really seemed to enjoy this program, as they get immediate feedback.

I am off to a meeting at KES this afternoon. Thankfully we have a TOC in this afternoon.

Until tomorrow.

Have a Great Evening

I just finished working with our discus throwers (they threw really well today) and I wanted to pass on my regards to everyone. I will be at a meeting at the SBO tomorrow so Mr. Sullivan will cover for me in my absence.

For those of you that have not heard yet, I have been assigned to Pender Harbour Secondary School for the 2011-2012 school year and current Superintendent of SD 46, Deborah Palmer, will be the Principal at GES. Change can be difficult for a lot of us, but I am confident that everything will work out well. It goes without saying that I will miss the staff, students and parents of GES. Mrs. Palmer will do a great job and I know that she is looking forward to her assignment at GES.

I will savour my time here and look forward to having a great finish to our school year.

Have a great evening.
