Hi Parents and loved ones,
This will be my penultimate blog post for this school year. I will not get emotional, I will leave that to next week’s final blog post. Instead, I want to highlight all the special events that have happened in the past week.
As you may know, the kids have been learning about narratives and the structure of a story. With green screen technology, students have placed themselves in teams and have created their own stories, characters, and settings. Keep an eye out for their videos coming out soon…
Ms. Anissa, the ES couselor, has paid us another visit. This time to talk about ‘body and summer safety’. As summertime approaches, it is important to know how to keep safe and enjoy vacation in a healthy way.
Another special event is that our K2 students visited Grade 1 for a another time. Together they ate lunch and played at recess to help with the transition of moving up.
We also attended a special lower ES assembly to bid farewell to our fearless leader, Dr. Chip Barder and to say goodbye to the first graders who will be attending the upper ES assemblies starting next year. Together our children came up with a goodbye letter to Dr. Barder and a chosen student read the letter at the assembly.
