Good morning and happy Sunday! I am writing this post from SeaTac airport and realizing how I will not be enjoying the time change today! The alarm rang at 4:30 😩 and I won’t get home until 5:30! Oh well! It was all worth it to meet up some friends and experience a new city!! Seattle is a great city. The forecast looked gloomy but it only rained for about 10 minutes (of the whole trip)! One of the coolest things was the amount of Blue Jays fans in the crowd and all over the city. Everywhere we looked there was someone wearing that Blue Jay blue! I hope you could tell on tv just how many fans there were and how exciting it was to have so much support for Canada’s team! I think it is super cool that the whole country supports the Jays even though many fans live very far from Toronto! I saw a sign that read “We spell color without “u”! I thought it was a clever one and really showed some of the friendly 🇨🇦 vs 🇺🇸 banter!
Anyhoo…back to school! I’m sure things were great while I was away 🙂!! Tomorrow is our big field trip to Gimli! Please arrive on time because we are leaving at 9:00. The bus ride will be quite long (about 90 minutes) so we need to make sure everyone uses the washroom before the school bell rings at 8:55. We are asking that all students bring a litter-less lunch so we keep on track with our environmental responsibility and that everyone is dressed for the weather. We will be doing some fun activities that coincide with our enviro inquiry and celebrate a beautiful place we have in Canada that is so close to home. I’m sure it’ll be a great day.
Later on this week we will have our final vertical group Canada 150 session. All kids in 123,124 and 125 will rotate through the two remaining stations. Soon our Canada 150 celebration will also take place. Stay tuned for details!!
This week we will also display our research projects and share some of our knowledge to educate others. I’m sure our Montrose friends will be excited to hear from us! We will also continue with math groups and learning the Robert Munsch plays that we will present near the end of the school year.
It’s hard to believe that it’s time to start wrapping things up already!!
Looking forward to another great week at school!!
Until next time,
