Goodbye Mr. Freeze - March Update

Happy Monday and welcome to some well deserved nice weather - finally! I personally have been dying to get back into my workshop and build more things and so now that it isn’t negative one billion degrees, it's buildin’ time! February was a super fast month packed with awesome moments - like when it was cold enough for boiling water to freeze instantly when thrown in the air or our ‘Dress Like a Teacher Day’ where I spent the day surrounded by mini-me’s and it was a riot. Anyways... we’re moving right along with the shenanigans and adventures in March.

Important Dates

Awesomeness - February Update

Welcome to February! It’s a short(ish) month in terms of school days with the Family Day Long Weekend, but that’s not stopping us from flying at a crazy pace. Between coding workshops, video calls with our sailor aboard HMCS Calgary, working on our Awesome Writing projects and dominating the world of multiplication and division, we barely have time to breathe. Not only that but we have a full month of Flames games! Everything is awesome. Here’s a run down of what we have coming up.

Important Dates
Wednesday, February 3rd: Report Cards available (virtually)

New Year, New You - January Update

Sorry for the late update. Here’s the haps for January! I’d planned on getting this out yesterday but I was so excited by the Flames game and then too frustrated after it that, because I’m just a Man Child, I was unable to work after the game. Maybe one day I’ll grow up. Maybe. So yes, I know the image says “Game Day” but pretend you’re reading this yesterday. :)

Important Dates
Thursday, January 28th - Spirit Day (Jersey Day)
Friday, January 29th - PD Day (no school for all students)

Merry KrisMask - December Update

Welcome to December. We’re two weeks away from a much deserved and well earned break. Also, what a week we just had - particularly with yesterday’s unfortunate accident. I’m grateful to hear that Pepper the Dog is doing well and is expected to recover. With the students having witnessed that, I’m just glad I was with them and able to take the time to debrief it. Anyways, with that great news we can rip right into the weekend and the awesomeness that we’ve got planned for the next two weeks. Here’s your update...

Important Dates
*Monday, December 7th – 11th – Stampede School (in-class)

That November Summer - November Update

You did it, you survived the week and while I know you’re all enjoying hearing about the American election in 15 vote increments, I was hoping to peal your attention away for a few moments to pass along the November update.
