This month has been busy with classes building their gravity cars and racing them down the track. I will have more pictures to share in the next couple of weeks as some classes are still building. Take a look at the photos and videos below to see some of the fun learning that has taken place.
Student Leadership News
Kenya and Water
This year our leadership team has decided to support Kenya. Our goal is to raise money so villages in Kenya have access to clean water and sanitation. Clean water helps remove barriers to education by reducing illness and allowing girls to go to school instead of spending hours each day fetching their family’s water – often from contaminated sources.

- Our leadership team is also helping our local community. We have already supported our local food bank with our “We Scare Hunger” campaign. Our school community collected 517 non perishable food items
- We are also excited about supporting local families during this Holiday season. Our students will be helping three families by putting together hampers full of clothing, toys, and games.
- Apart from supporting important global initiatives and building school spirit, one of the most important mandates of our Student Leadership Team is to make our own community a better place to live. With that idea in mind, we are hoping to collect as many warm, clean blankets as we can to provide some respite from the cold for people who are forced to live out on the streets. If you have a blanket to donate, please send it in a bag to your child’s classroom teacher. Members of the leadership team will come around and collect the blankets by Tuesday, December 12, 2018. The blankets will then be delivered to a local shelter.
School Spirit with a Fundraising Twist
We are having a theme day: Disney Day is this Wednesday November 22nd. Come to school dressed as your favourite Disney character. Our student leaders will be coming around to take pictures.
