Today each of the “houses” (Willow, Birch, Oak, Pine and Maple) met their grade 6 house heads. They played some social distanced games, met their house members and practiced their cheer. Great job to the grade 6 students for leading your first meeting!!

The grade 5 and 6 class had a wonderful time at Camp Sunnybrook the past two days. Since they could not attend overnight camp this year, an adapted camp experience was created. One day they spent testing their skills on low ropes and they participated in many team building games. The following day, they hiked to Brickworks and participated in building ecosystems and learning how to build a fire. A great team building experience.
“Every Child Matters”. Students chose to wear an orange shirt today to promote awareness about the residential school system and the impact this system had on Indigenous communities in Canada. It was wonderful to see how many students at Sunnybrook chose to wear the colour and show their voice through solidarity.
The Terry Fox run was a great success. We had a beautiful day to run and support Cancer Research. All the children in the school participated. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out and helped cheer the children on. Thank you to Mrs Davy for joining our virtual assembly about Founder’s Day and sharing her memories from being principal for 32 years!
For many families the most important keepsake of the school year is the school photo. This year the keepsake will be a social distancing class photo and a photo with the children wearing their fashionable masks.
Today was the first day of school and it was so nice to be back with the students. It has been so long!! All children were screened before entering the school and we are getting used to the new routines of which stairwells to use, sanitizing our hands and wearing our masks. I am so proud of all the students for doing such a great job. Looking forward to a great year ahead!
Last night we celebrated with the graduating class of 2020 at their virtual grad ceremony. It was a special evening full of memories and emotion. Today the grads received a grad parade from their teachers. Each graduate received a lawn sign, cupcakes, their diploma followed by a visit from an ice cream truck!! It was great to send the grade 6 students off in style. Hopefully a memory they won’t forget.
Today we gathered for our house meetings. We all wore our house shirts and each person came with 5 coloured objects. Then we played two games, Wink Master and JEPOARDy for house points. It was so nice to be all together again.
Today was build a fort and zoom in it day. All the staff and students made a fort – some were very creative!!! The Grade 5 teacher even made a fort outside and zoomed in the rain!! The Grade 3 class presented their Poetry Slam from their forts. What a way to end the week.
