These are the Days - November Update

Hard to argue with these fall nights. You’ve got Northern Lights, cool evenings and sun on your face in the morning. Also, you did it, you survived Halloween and while I know you’re all likely still enjoying the spoils of your childs Trick or Treating, I was hoping to peal your attention away for a few moments to pass along the November update. It’s a busy month and we’ve lots going on so here’s a quick run down of what to expect.
 
Important Dates
Thursday, November 11 - No School for all students (Remembrance Day)
Friday, November 12 - No School (CBE PD Day)

Party Rockin' - October Update

Party Rockin' - October Update

The Blue Jays may have lost and it may be getting colder now but we’ll manage just fine I guess since we have good ol’ hockey back now. Here at school we’ve managed to survive an entire month together and it seemed like just a few days ago that I was trying to learn people’s names. Personally this is the fastest I’ve ever learned names (less than a week!!) since I’ve become a little notorious in the school for being brutal with names. That said, once I’ve got the name it’s stuck so I’ll focus on that instead haha. Speaking of things that we’ve “got” here’s what is coming up in the next few weeks.

Straight outta Summer - September Update

We’re back at it and fully up and running. Hard to complain about the start of the year as it’s been about as smooth as you could hope. We’re fully into curriculum and it’s been great to have some of the small things “back” that we took for granted pre-COVID - like playing together as a grade or physically going to the library and music room. Who would have thought that would be legitimately exciting? Here’s a run down on what we’re up to and what you can look forward to over the next couple weeks.
Important Dates
Wednesday, September 15 - Picture Day

Goodbye Mr. Freeze - March Update

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)
Wednesday, February 10th:...
