On Tuesday, classes will be participating in Drumfit, a fast-paced, non-competitive fitness program that combines music, movement and drumming. It's a different way to be active while listening to music. Here are two videos of what this looks like. The first video integrates activity with math.
Only 7 more weeks of school fun!
Have a mindful week!
~ Ms Broderick and Ms Rosenbloom
...Ms Ciobanu brought GUSH to our Gr 8 students. This program helped students problem solve ways to create paths for clean water. It opened up moral and ethical discussions about the pipeline and it's impact on the Native community. A great way to integrate literacy, science and history.
All the Best Ms Jain!
We would like to send our best wishes to Ms Jain who will be on maternity leave. We look forward to seeing pics of your new expanded family!
Yearbook is Coming to Life!
This week the Wellness Group brainstormed recess games that we can play to help maintain good mental health. We also discussed why these games help us stay mentally well. We will be sharing some of our best ideas during the morning announcements next week. The Wellness Group also went outside to play the Mirror Dance game. Ask one of your friends in the Wellness Group to show you how to play!
