Full Dress Uniform Tomorrow

Just a note that tomorrow, students should wear full dress uniforms for the assembly. The assembly will start at 9:30 though students should in their class at the normal school start time. The assembly should go to approximately 10:30. Students will then come back to the class and be dismissed from there.

 

Book Reviews

As some of the students finished their novel studies early, I thought it would be fun to have the students do some book reviews. However, being fun people we are, I thought it would be great to add some technology. So, students videotaped their book reviews in front of a green screen. We then put it on the computer and added some background, replacing the green screen with the background to make it look like they were actually in those locations. It took a little work but the end result looks kind of neat. Take a look for yourself:


 

Events for the Week

Well, here we are at the of the school year. There has been lots happening and things so much happening, I thought I would share some info with you.

  1. Knights Day and Half Day tomorrow: Tomorrow, being the last Wednesday of the month, will be a Knights day. It is also a half day for the students as the Primary is having their fun day.
  2. Thursday: Students have earned their party and will be having it on the Thursday afternoon. It will be a nice way to end the day as we will be doing a massive cleanup in the morning. Please send snacks with the students. Please also have students bring their backpacks and another plastic or cloth bag for their school items.
  3. Friday: For the assembly, we will be starting at 9:30 in the gym. When the assembly is over, students will be dismissed.

A Real Treasure Hunt on Oak Island

nickell-mapOn an island off the coast of Nova Scotia, there is something hidden. Nobody know what or who hid it but something is there at the bottom of a pit that no one can get too. Stones with clues, log floors built every 10 metres, coconut fibres, traps that fill the pit with water from the ocean. . . these are just a few of the things to be found on Oak Island.

As part of our unit, we are looking at the things that pirates stole or plundered. As we learned, most times it was not gold, silver and other precious metals. Most times it was plain ordinary things that the pirates needed. However, there are lots of stories, myths and legends concerning buried treasure and one of them is about a hole on a little island off the coast of Nova Scotia.

Here is some info and videos. I also included a couple of links to find out more!

A Few Things…

Well, we made it back from our waterslides fieldtrip in one piece. Those of us not swimming still seemed to find ourselves as wet as the swimmers, surprisingly. The kids were all great and we did have a wonderful day.

Just a couple of things as we go into this, our second last week of school.

  1. We have memory verses due tomorrow. They were handed out last Tuesday.
  2. There will be no spelling list this week.
  3. Weds is a half day ending at 12:00. The morning will be our annual sports day. If you are interested in helping out let me know. A few parent volunteers is always helpful.

 

 

Fieldtrips and Criminal Record Check

Just a reminder that if you are joining us on the waterslides field trips, the office would like to remind you to please confirm that you have your Criminal Record’s Check up to date at the office.  If it has been done within the last year and a half then it is good.  If not, please reapply.  If you’re not sure, please just ask at the office and they will be happy to help you.  Thank you!

Our memory verse for the week is from 1 Corinthians 13:8

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
