Grade 5

Week of January 27th – 31st

Hi Grade 5 Families!

We had a wonderful celebration during St. Paul Feast Day this past Friday; with Mass, lunch and a school-wide Bingo game! It’s always lovely to gather together as a community to celebrate our school saint! This week, we look forward to our last Grouse Trip and a dress down day!

This week’s featured image is from our visit from the Richmond Orchestra. They performed the Harry Potter and Star Wars theme songs, as well as the Carnival of the Animals by composer Camille Saint-Saëns. The children have been studying the song in Music class and it was a wonderful experience to hear it from a live orchestra and have the different instrumentation explained!
