As you may know, Mr. Loosemore has been away and will need to be away until the end of the school year. During his leave, Ms. Pather will be replacing Mr. Loosemore as your child’s teacher.
In addition, we have asked Mrs. Karen Fadum be the acting Vice Principal for our school. Please join me in welcoming both Mrs. Fadum and Ms. Pather.
We want to make this transition smoothly so please feel free to reach out directly to me with any questions or concerns you may have.
Primary Maker Faire
It was great to see all the parent volunteers this past week at our primary Maker Faire. All volunteers came well equipped with glue, cardboard, and plenty of tape. The students were so very proud of their creations. We even had a rocket ship that worked! Take a look at the videos and pictures below:
January is the month we do our Canadathon fundraiser. Students are busy studying Canada facts and trivia and then collecting pledges from family.
We had our very first Canadathon Game Show. We had 5 teams enter the competition and our goal was to have fun while we displayed our knowledge of Canadian trivia. There was a lot of cheering and good humour as we played the game. We even had an impromptu round with teachers!
The five teams who made it to the game show were:
The Canadian Geese: Anjili Jette, Griffin Sowden, Maximus Jeng, Taya Trapp-Brodie
The Red Maple Leafs: Evan Leith, Janica Li, Kiana Sahota, Regis Liang
The Canadian Maple Syrups: Connor MacLellan, Grady McDonnell, Seren Zhang, Adam Wilson
The Canadian Timbits: Connor Halewood, Zachary Bi, Hannah Bao, Alex Sowden
The Goldrushers: Serena Zhang, Alishah Khan, Richard Shen, Ajmer Ghuman
Winner of the first round was The Canadian Geese and winner of the second round was The Red Maple Leafs.
Please have all Canadathon pledge money into the classroom teacher by February 15th at the latest. All money collected goes towards learning materials for students to use in the classroom (books, field trips, etc.).
