Week at a Glance June 5-9

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a wonderful week. On Monday, our grade 4/5 class hosted their friends from York Care for an intergenerational BBQ. Many thanks to Ms. McCabe and Anita Newling for organizing this! We also participated in whole-school math fact BINGO. On Tuesday, our friends from Nashwaaksis Memorial joined us for Music Madness! Their K-2 classes came from 9-10am and their 3-5 classes from 10:30-11:30. There were music activities inside and the students also played together outside on the site of their future new school! Yesterday, many students in grades 3-5 headed to Nashwaaksis Middle School for District Track and Field. Our little school received 3 ribbons! E in grade 5 got 1st in discus and 2rd in the 80m run. K in grade 5 got 3rd in the ball throw! On top of that, our students were amazing teammates and very patient with the waiting, heat and unexpected lockdown! Families of students who were at track and field were notified as soon as we went into lockdown and then when the lockdown was lifted. Our amazing School Counselor, Mrs. LeBlanc, debriefed with us about what happened and then met with a small group who still wanted to talk. Our students followed instructions beautifully and their staff members as well as first responders worked diligently and quickly to keep us all safe.
