This is a year that is going to be remembered for a long time! With so much changing daily and uncertainty around the world, one thing is certain – our school yearbook will be published and will document this incredible time in our lives. It’s one for the books!
We are looking for pictures and stories of what school at home looks like for YOU! Send us pictures of your son doing his school work at home and the space you’ve created for leaning. Send pictures to Mrs. Reimer: email@example.com
You can order a yearbook online at ybpay.lifetouch.ca. The school id is 13427420. Order deadline is June 19. Only those yearbooks that have been paid for will be ordered.
We have had 20 families who have reserved their yearbooks by paying for them already. If you don’t remember if you have paid for a yearbook or not, please go to the website above and click the “Get Details of Your Previous Orders by Email” button at the bottom and use the email address of the mother of the student. I have entered in those who have paid by cheque using the mother’s email address.
It’s week 2 of the new virtual Pitch Competition, where students record a 60 second business pitch in Flipgrid for a chance to win a gift card and be posted online. Flipgrid is a fun and simple platform for making compelling videos with plenty of special effects. Instructions, ideas and examples are located in Google Classroom and at Flipgrid Pitch Competition.
The pitch, accompanied by the online business plan, should be submitted by June 1. One winner from each of the grade 1-3 classes and two from each of the grade 4-9 classes will win a $10 gift card. Results will be announced June 8th. Good luck to all the presenters!
We know that we have a number of parents that are working on the front lines during this pandemic. We would like to share stories with the boys about how you are making a difference in the world by putting yourselves at risk for others every day. Please share your stories with us (or a family member can do it for you) by sending an email to Dorothy Reimer with the following information:
This week’s Notable Navigator is Ms. Jenn! Ms. Jenn consistently goes the extra mile to develop engaging, interactive and super fun projects.
