May brings a whirlwind to Sunnybrook each year that keeps us quite breathless. It starts with Fun Fair, and so many parents working to create a magical experience for SBS students. Our thanks to all of you for signing up to make Fun Fair such a memorable day.
And of course, May is also show month at SBS. The musical transforms our school into a hive of theatrical activity. Rotations have begun - the days when students move from one station to the next, making programs and props, learning choreography, rehearsing songs, and learning their movements. We couldn’t do it without the parents who come and help create the sets and props that make the musical come alive, and our amazing teachers who work with everyone to keep us on track, and ensure that each rotation flows in a constructive and fun way.
Every year we are fascinated to see our students’ engagement during rotations. The musical is a different vehicle for developing skills and interests, and often we see students shine in unexpected ways. So many of our younger students show us a different side of themselves, and our senior students demonstrate leadership in many small ways. The level of cooperation, interest and focus is truly remarkable. We are so very proud of the tremendous dedication our students put into this great event. I can’t wait for opening night!
As we enjoy better weather, springtime games on the playground, outdoor field trips and everything else May offers, these two great community events will bring us all together. See you Saturday at the Fair!
