Our Grade 5 and 6 classes walked to our local retirement residence to sing some holiday songs for the residents of Meighan Lodge. After singing for their audience, students share Christmas cards with the residents, and chat with them about their experiences, memories, and hopes for the holidays. This action is a highlight of December activities every year at SBS.
Singing for Seniors
Our students certainly sang in the winter season with enthusiasm and energy. Grade 5 and 6 students performed on their recorders and the Junior and Senior Choirs entertained us with some very special music. The whole school choir sang a number of songs magnificently.
The December Concert brings the SBS community together around music. This year's selections put us in a festive mood for a wonderful holiday! Our thanks to Ms Berthiaume and our students for the lovely evening.
Kids watching a movie in pyjamas, relaxing with their stuffies and sleeping bags, enjoying pizza and popcorn, and having a great time with friends on a Friday night - that is Movie Night at Sunnybrook. A super time for everyone, provided by the Sunnybrook Parents Association and their team of fearless volunteers who make movie night so special that 115 kids signed up to be there! Finding Dory was a great choice for the evening.
Thanks to everyone who made the night such a memorable community event.

Sunnybrook School convened the 2017 SSAF Cross Country Meet in Sunnybrook Park last week. Our Athletic Director, Mr Woodward organized a very successful day and our Wizards ran amazing races. The weather couldn't have been better!
Many thanks to our parents who came out to help and to cheer our runners on the course. Thanks to our SBS teachers for your support of this event. And thanks to Chris Woodward for taking on the SSAF Meet, with over 1,000 runners, and all the logistics that go along with an undertaking of such large proportions. What a great day!
We are so proud of our team, and each student's efforts. Go Wizards!
When our SSAF Cross-Country Team goes to their big meet, the remaining students take a trip to a park for a nature and orientiering experience. This year the students went to Sunnybrook Park. Their day consisted of time sketching nature, a nature walk, and geocaching. The groups all found their treasure at the end of the geocaching hunt, and had a fabulous day with super weather and wonderful learning experiences.
Our thanks to parent, Jason Ramsey Brown for the nature walks. Your contributions are always appreciated.

GR 2 | Scientists in the School
For their Unit of Inquiry about Structures, 'Scientists in the School' spent a day with our GR 2 class learning about bridges, and how to make them strong so they can carry a load.
Parents joined the class to help with the challenges of creating a bridge that a car could cross and that could carry the weight of 2 heavy books. Testing the bridges was the best part!
