Author visit 2019

Posted on March 8

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

Posted on March 4

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.

Ski Day 2019

Posted on January 28

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!

JK Five Senses Festival

Posted on January 18

At the end of the Unit of Inquiry exploring the Five Senses the JK class holds a Festival, to share their learning with their parents. Our JK students move from station to station with their parents to share their knowledge and explore the five senses with their family. Smelling, seeing, touching, hearing and tasting are explored thorought the unit. The best part is the big 5 Senses Festival day when families participate with their children.

Each student makes a Five Senses hat to wear on the day of the festival; the hat demonstrates the five ways that we perceive our world.
