Happy Saturday Everyone!!!
Here we are…only a few posts away from the last day of school!!!!
Here is a little recap of last week at school 🙂
*Gimli Field Trip: This was an awesome day. Really…it couldn’t have gone any better. The weather was perfect and the kids had a blast. We were able to build, play and explore…without seeing any algae in the water!
*Montrose Music Makers: Once again Room 123 showed just how creative we are! We are getting soooooo good at being makers and are really contributing to a maker culture in the school. Our instruments were pretty amazing!
*Canada 150: We have completed our final vertical team sessions and now students have rotated through all 4 stations (dance, drumming, drama and language). Mr. Okemaw came to help with the language and culture piece by teaching us some Cree words and a fun game! An email has gone out to all families to invite everyone to our Canada 150 celebration on Wednesday, June 21 from 6:00-8:00. The format is come and go, however there are some components that will be at a scheduled time. The opening will hopefully take place in the field (weather permitting) at 6:00. There will be a hoop dancer, heart garden, drumming/drama interactive piece, guest speakers, treaty display, bannock and lemonade. It will be a great evening. We hope to see you there! *Please note that you are invited to rotate through all stations since our students in Room 123 have only been part of the Language and Culture session and have not seen what the Treaty and Residential School sessions have been learning.
*Ask me…: This weekend’s Ask Me question is about our Canada 150 vertical team sessions. Please write or draw something about at least one of the activities 🙂
*Family Life/Safety will be wrapping up soon *Fractions and decimals are going strong *Our self portraits are starting to come along and will be amazing! *We are going to do a super fun Which One Doesn’t Belong (I can’t wait to tell the kids!) *Robert Munsch Reader’s Theatre presentations will come up soon. They kids have been having so much fun rehearsing their lines and deciding what props they will need!
Finally…Happy Father’s Day out there to all the Daddios for tomorrow! I hope you enjoy the cards your children have made. They made them with you in mind!
Good luck to all the runners participating in the Manitoba Marathon tomorrow. If you feel like doing some cheering…yours truly will be doing the 3rd section of the relay which will start at Laura Secord School, go down Portage to Assiniboine Park and then onto Wellington Crescent before handing the relay belt to Ms V!
Until next time,
