Thank you to all the parents who came out to our 3 Way Conferences Tuesday and Wednesday. It was so nice getting to speak to all of you and to share your students successes with you. I know that we are off to a great start in Grade 4/5 and I can't wait to see how far your students come this year.
A big thank you to all of our students today. The students were invaluable to me in helping us to prepare for our Remembrance Assembly today. This morning they hung posters, artwork, set up chairs, etc. They helped clean the gym after our assembly as well, not to mention the AMAZING job Claira, Annouk, Kalem, and Zayne did as our student MCs. The assembly went well. It was interesting to hear retired WO Brian Holmes share some of the history of Remembrance Day, as well as getting to talk to him and hear some of his stories when he visited our classroom. It was also wonderful to have RCMP Members Andrew and Jana Starr, Branden's parents, join us in uniform and to share their family history with us.
We also explored the Canadian War Museum's online resource, Over the Top, today. This resource has students experience some of the challenges faced by frontline Canadian troops during WWI.
Have a wonderful long weekend everyone! Get lots of rest and enjoy spending time with your families. I'll see you all on Tuesday.
