The JK class is learning all about math shapes from home. They need to know their shapes, cut, glue and write the number.
This week our students started the term Remote Learning! We will be taking all of our lessons on Zoom. Hopefully we can be back in the classroom soon.
Since the students have worked so hard this term with wearing their masks, sanitizing their hands, physically distancing and following protocols, the Parents Association gave each child in the school a gingerbread house to decorate over the Winter Break. Thank you for spreading joy and happiness to our families!!
The Royal Canadian Legion sponsors an annual poster, essay and literary contest to foster the tradition of remembrance among Canadians. In November, 35 of our students entered The Royal Canadian Legion Contest and out of 130 submissions, SBS had 9 winners (4 firsts) this year. The winners received their certificates and money prizes last week. We congratulate our winners.
Our December community action is to make Christmas cards for the senior residents of Meighen Lodge. This year we just dropped the cards off as we were no allowed to visit. We hope they are safe and healthy.
Our Birthday Book Program brought our community together again this year to celebrate literacy. This year we had our event virtually and we opened our BIRTHDAY BOOKSHOP on line so that the families could donate a book to our library in lieu of the student’s birthday.
Our families generously donated 132 books to our library. Thanks to you all!!!
These new titles will be processed shortly and added to our collection. Your children will be the first to sign out their birthday books to take home and enjoy reading with you.
Thank you, Ms Mactaggart for organizing the Birthday Book sale, and your wonderful selection of books throughout the year.
Students rolled out of bed this morning and did not have to change because it is PYJAMA DAY. This afternoon students watched a movie in their classrooms! A great way to end the week……..
Our SBS Parents Association initiated a book drive and our community donated 14 boxes of children’s books to the Children’s Book Bank. What a generous community!
Nathan, a student in Grade 2, initiated an action to donate new and unwrapped toys to Toy Mountain. Nathan recently saw a video of the CTV News and The Salvation Army Toy Mountain Campaign. Nathan’s dad said, “After a very thoughtful discussion, he was inspired to help other less fortunate kids by donating one of his new Lego sets.” What a wonderful holiday initiative Nathan!!
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!!
