Our annual Fun Fair was a perfect day to end our crazy week. We had a great turnout, lots of wonderful activities (games, bouncy castle and slide, face painting, great food, jars and more). Many of our alumni came back to visit and help out! Our thanks to our wonderful parent group for creating such a fabulous day of community fun for SBS, our students and families.
Fun Fair 2019
GrandPals Day is a special day for Grandparents, aunts, uncles, trusted friends to come to Sunnybrook to relive their school days. Together they visited different stations in the school, to explore different aspects of the students' learning. Activities in the home Studios as well as in Music, Library, French and Phys Ed. made it a full experienece for everyone. There was lots of music making, egg colouring, floor hockey and French games happening. It was a wonderful afternoon.
Geography Challenge 2019
A highlight of the Spring Term at Sunnybrook is the Annual SBS Geography Challenge, which will take place in April. Before the break we gather all our students from Grades Four, Five and Six to participate in the qualifying round.
Our geographers had great results, and the final was a nail biter. In the end, Tanner/GR 4, Thomas, GR 5 and Jacob, GR 6 are our finalists for the big inter school Geography Challenge. Congratualtions to all of you!
Author visit 2019
Author visits here at school enrich children's understanding of literature, how books come to be, and the process of writing and creating a book. We are so fortunate that our Sunnybrook Parent Association sponsors author visits each year.
Willow Dawson gave a lively presentation ans shared her books. Taking home a book of their own signed by the author was the perfect ending to a wonderful morning.
Student Led Conferences 2019
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.
Chocolate bark family Event
The SPA put together a wonderful Valentine's Event. Two chocolate chefs came in and made chocolate bark and truffles with many families. The students were able to decorate the bark with lots of toppings and then decorate truffles to take home as well. While the bark was setting, the families had an oppourtunity to learn about chocolate. It was a sweet way to spend time on Saturday afternoon.

Ski Day 2019
Ski Day was a hit again this year. The buses left at 7:15 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. It was a sunny day and it was 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 skiing at Skyloft as we had the entire hill to ourselves, 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!
