Did you that that this week, Mme Fielding (grade 3/4), Mme Proulx (grade 3), and Mrs. English (grade 3) walked with their classes to the Riverview Fire Department? The students learned about fire safety, had a tour of the building, and were given the opportunity to ask questions. Next, they will be going to visit the Riverview Public Library. What a great way to get to know about our community!​

Did you know that Ms. Jenna Bamford is our school counsellor? Ms. Bamford provides short-term counseling, teaches classroom lessons on academics, social/emotional learning, and career development, and she collaborates with students, parents, teachers, and outside agencies. This year, she is joined by Mrs. Erin Martin, an Anglophone East teacher, and Yorkville University student, who is completing her counselling practicum at our school. Mrs. Martin brings a wealth of knowledge and compassion to the staff, students, and to the school counselling supports services. They are a fantastic duo, and we are very lucky to them as part of our counselling and student services team! ​

Our school is adorned, with beautiful artwork that has been created by our talented students. The past few weeks, our students in Grade K – 1 have learned about Vincent Van Gogh and have created their own version of a sunflower. Our Grades 2 – 5 have learned about self-portraits. They have created an assortment of projects spanning from collages, 3D portraits, and historical art inspired self-portraits. Our Grade 5 students looked the Pop-Art movement and created self-portraits influenced by artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Linchtenstein. Our goal is to ensure that each student has a masterpiece that is proudly displayed within our school. These projects have been inspired by our wonderful art teachers, Mrs. Leanne Delaney, Mme Lisa Cormier, and Ms. Emma Delaney. We are fortunate to have Ms. Delaney join our team as she completes her student internship. She has a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts and is currently an Education student from Crandall University. In her spare time, she works out of a printmaking studio at the Aberdeen Cultural Centre.​
