Pre-K had a fun Friday while practising their dribbling and catching skills in PE class.
- Coach Keisha
Grade 2 has been investigating the properties of different types of rocks. The students explored CMIS in order to find schoolyard rocks and examine their properties. They compared and contrasted 2 of the rocks they discovered and shared their findings with a partner.
- Ms. Shannon
The grade 8 computer students are currently studying engineering. They first learned the engineering design process and then used the steps in the process to build a shelf for their locker out of cardboard and popsicle sticks that could hold at least 20kg of books. After researching the problem and identifying criteria and constraints, the students sketched a design, built, tested, redesigned and created their final project.
- Mrs. Renee
Even with the sudden shift to online learning, PE students are still practicing their football skills! In today's class, we practiced dribbling in our own outdoor spaces and learned about the resilient story of Pele, the famous Brazilian footballer.
- Coach Keisha
6th grade students are experimenting with natural clay this week, creating mugs and dishes which we will later on take to a local pottery studio to glaze and fire.
- Mr. Nick
Grade 1 has been exploring the properties of air. Students worked with a set of objects to see how air makes objects move as well as how it is a form of matter that takes up space. Students also learned about air resistance by engineering parachutes that can deliver cargo safely to the ground.
- Ms. Sydney
The National Honor Society is excited to announce that we will be hosting our annual writing competition this year! This competition will provide all students an opportunity to be creative and explore the art of story writing!
