I think it’s safe to say that we all had a blast during Science and Technology Week with Bible lessons on how God created our bodies with Mrs. McGonnell, interactive learning centers with the high school students and teachers, geocaching with Mr. Ellis, a science experiment about buoyancy with Mrs. MacNeill, and Dress like a Scientist Day. What a fantastic week of learning!
A Spud-tacular Win!
Congratulations to Kyler Barrett on finishing first in last week’s Spud Run!
School Cancellation Due to Mrs. Helen Fanning’s Funeral
We have received the news that Mrs. Helen Fanning (the mother of our secretary, Miss Judy Fanning) has passed away to be with her Saviour.
The wake will be held at the Belvedere Funeral Home on Tuesday, October 27, from 4pm to 7pm. The funeral will be held also be at the funeral home on Wednesday, October 28, at 10:30am. To support Miss Fanning through this difficult time, staff will be attending the funeral; therefore, school is cancelled on Wednesday. There will also be no after-school program on that day.
Messages of condolence can be sent to Miss Fanning through the funeral home’s website or left in the school office.
Fall Party Cancellation
Fall Party, which was supposed to take place on Wednesday, has also been cancelled. I will update the blog as soon as I know whether or not we will reschedule this event.
Combined Social Studies and Spelling Test
There will be no spelling test this week. However, we will be having a combined Social Studies and Spelling Test on the continents and oceans the following week. We will cover the continents in class, but students will need to study at home in order to do well. There is a study sheet in the spelling folder which looks exactly like the test that students can use to study.
Trip to the Mount
On Thursday, November 5th, grade 3/4 will be travelling to The Mount Continuing Care Community to minister to the seniors there and to “adopt a Grandparent” for a short time. Permission slips will be sent home this week. We will need drives for this event so please let me know if you can help.
