Some of our Grade 4/5 students have been selected to participate in a variety of art workshops. It’s pretty neat to see students from all over the school district come together to be creative and produce some amazing artwork. A big thank you to Mrs. Rosman, Mrs. Bartsch, and Mr. Wes for organizing the art displays and for working out all of the details, enabling twenty of our students to participate in the workshops.

Thursday, March 5th
Grade 4/5 Talent Show.
After months of organizing, preparation and practice, the Grade 4/5 students who have volunteered to perform at the Talent Show will get their “15 minutes of fame” (well… more like two minutes, but it will be a very exciting two minutes!). It takes lots of courage for students to get up and sing, dance or tell jokes to the their peers. The Talent Show will begin at 10:00 and family members are more than welcome to join us. A special thank you goes to Mme Candy and her Grade 4/5 organizers!!
