​We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Holiday and that you are all rested ready to go!


Tuesday Trivia:

Riddles: 


6) Mr. Smith has 4 daughters. Each of his daughters has a brother. How many children does Mr. Smith have? 


7) What has a bottom at the top?


8) What disappears the moment you say its name? 


A reminder that when classes are outside, please stay off the field and other grassy areas around the school.  The ground is saturated with water and the soil is thawing!  The grass will have no chance to grow for later enjoyment if it is trampled on!  Not to mention the hallways and classrooms with all the muck brought in.  We appreciate you and your understanding of this.  Sunny days are just around the corner.


A Cafeteria reminder that grade 6’s for food pickup at 11:50, grade 7’s for 11:55 and grade 8’s are at 12:00.  Your trays and baskets are to be returned by 11:15 for sterilizing.  We appreciate your help with this.

​Grade 6  Which travels faster: a Formula 1 racing car or the ISS?


The fastest Formula 1 cars reach speeds of around 360 km/h whereas the Space Station orbits Earth at 28,000 km/h! At that speed, the Space Station circles the globe 16 times per day, which means that astronauts aboard the ISS can see sunrises every 90 minutes. It also means that the Station covers a distance equivalent to the Moon and back every day!


Grade 7  What was one of Astronaut David Saint-Jacques' job before becoming an astronaut?

Before becoming an astronaut, David Saint-Jacques worked as a family physician, an astrophysicist and an engineer. He has a bachelor of engineering in engineering physics from École polytechnique de Montréal, Canada, a Ph.D. in astrophysics from Cambridge University, UK, and a medical degree from Université Laval in Quebec City, Canada.

Grade 8   What is the usual duration of an astronauts mission aboard the ISS?

Astronauts and cosmonauts usually spend about 6 months aboard the ISS during a mission. However, in 2016, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Roscosmos cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko lived on the ISS for a whole year to learn more about the long-term effects of living in space on the human body. Astronaut David Saint Jacques spent 204 days aboard the ISS. He’ll be telling us all about his time abord the ISS and many other interesting aspects of his life and career when we meet with him virtually later on this morning.

Again, a reminder about outdoor time –we are happy that classes are able to get outside but we are noticing that the mud is making a terrible mess. When students are outside, please stay on the paved areas. Mud gets tracked into the building and makes a lot of extra work for our custodians. 


Cafeteria Reminders:  Grade levels are falling out of sync, which in turn creates a huge traffic jam in the Cafeteria.  A Grade 6 class representative is to be in cafeteria at 11:50, Grade 7 – 11:55 and finally, Grade 8-tray pickup is at 12:00… on the dot.  Once trays/baskets have been unloaded….would someone please deliver them back to the cafeteria asap (12:20 at the latest).
