Student Led Conferences

Last Friday was a special day in the school. Student Led Conferences offer a meaningful and powerful way for parents to learn about their children's progress. Beginning in JK students and parents sit together for up to an hour. During this time the students share their learning in all areas of the curriculum. This includes their regular studio work such as math, language and Units of Inquiry. They also demonstrate their learning in French, Music and Phys Ed during their conference.
This is a powerful way for parents to experience the progress their children make during the school year.
During the SLC day, our Grade Six class holds it's PYP Exhibition. This is always a wonderful days in the school, a true celebration of student learning.

Skating is an element of our Phys Ed program in GR 1, 2 and 3. This year we are having great weather and lots of fun at the rink. The winter term is easier when we fill the days with great winter sports, and skating is a highlight for the kids.

Our thanks to our parent volunteers who help with lacing skates and on the ice. And to our teachers for sharing their enthusiasm for winter fun with their students!

Ski Day 2018

Ski Day was a hit again this year. The buses left at 7:00 am filled with excited young skiers, parents and teachers. All our students had 2 hour lessons in the morning and time to ski together after lunch. Some of our Grade 6 students had the fun idea to use the day to learn snowboarding! It was a milder (for this winter), sunny day and a success all around. Just in time for dismissal the buses returned with a load of happy, tired students and their chaperones.
Everyone was happy with the move to Skyloft this year, and we thank them for their excellent care and service throughout the day.


Special thanks to the teachers and parents who work so hard to make ski day so special for our students every year!

Singing for Seniors

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.

Holiday Concert

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.

SK presents Seasons

Do you know what beavers do in winter? How do turtles survive the cold? Our SK students study these questions as part of their unit of inquiry, The Reason for Seasons, and this week they presented their findings to their parents. With small diaramas in boxes, drawings of animals, and fact sheets, they talked about what happens in each season, with the animal they were studying. Parents had a great time. Well done, SK, we learned so much from you!

JK Winter Showcase

Our JK class proudly presented their learning in French and Music to their parents yesterday. Singing and performing was followed by story time with the principal, and a fun activity with their parents.

The best part was sitting with parents and siblings, to decorate Gingerbread Houses. What a lovely treat!

This new format for our first JK concert of the year is less formal, and allows our youngest students to perform for their parents in a more familiar setting. We were so proud of them as they enthusiastically sang, recited, and shared with their families.

Clothing Drive

Our Kids Can Too action club holds a clothing drive each year. The donations are delivered to New Circles, a local organisation the provides a clothing bank and other services to newly arrived immigrant families.

Students collect the clothing over a week in November, assisting parents dropping off in the morning, storing the bags, and keeping everything organised. At the end of the collection period, the bags are loaded into a school bus by a chain of kids passing them through the school and out the front walk to be packed onto the bus. When they arrive at New Circles, Kids Can Too kids unload the bags, and spend the afternoon sorting clothes for the clothing bank.

Kids Can Too delivered 101 bags of clothing this year, just in time for winter!

We are proud of our students' efforts to take action locally and to know that SBS is able to make a difference for New Circles.
