Grade 5

Week of November 11th – 15th

Hello Grade 5 Families!

The children had a fantastic Grade 5 Boys vs. Girls volleyball challenge on Monday! I came to watch for a bit and it looked like a lot of fun! We also had a wonderful Remembrance Day celebration led by Grade 7s, it was very reverend and a good reminder of the why continue to live in peace and harmony.

Our featured image this week is our Hallway Art. We had discussed Remembrance Day and the significance of the poppy. We found out that poppies look different in different countries and used that as inspiration for our art!
