For many families the most important keepsake of the school year is the school photo. And big smiles are what make them so special. As you can see, there were some very big smiles this year!
Photo Day 2019
The First Day of School 2019
Shoes polished, hair freshly trimmed, uniforms looking crisp and fresh - the year began with happy students coming back to enjoy another year at SBS. Our new kindergarten students were thrilled with the good weather, the playground, and the whole experience of starting school. The rest of us just enjoyed being back. It was a splendid day, all around!
Madagascar was a hit, and played to a sold out audience both nights. From GR 1 to GR 6 all our students performed with enthusiasm, using their talent and hard work to create a magical theatre experience for their families.
Our thanks to all the volunteers who helped make the show a success for our students.
Fun Fair 2019
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.
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.
