Week at a Glance Sept. 30- Oct. 4

What a great day we had at the Apple Orchard on Thursday!  It was sunny and cool which made for perfect apple picking. The students had a wonderful time learning about apple history, how to tell when an apple is ready, exploring the orchard, picking and eating apples, getting lost in the corn maze, enjoying a picnic lunch and playing on the playground. We also had a tasty apple treat for snack today made by our great grade 5 students using the apples we picked!

Today we also remembered Terry Fox and shared in learning. Thank you to everyone that contributed to our Terry Fox walk!

A few reminders: 

School Pictures- The individual student proofs should arrive early this week. You are then able to purchase online or with the paper order form.

Breakfast Program- Breakfast program is on Tuesday, October 1. This week students will be having scrambled eggs and toast. All students are welcome. When they arrive on the playground they come right inside the grade 2-5 door and come downstairs to the gymnasium to enjoy breakfast with friends. If arriving close to bell students will take the breakfast back to classroom.
