Grade 5 – Joshua and Ali (Mar 6,2020)

The grade five class had an exciting week and we are going to share about our inquiry assignment creating a lap book. It was hands on and really fun.

The assignment is to make a lap book to show our understanding of simple machines.
This is what we have learned so far: We have learned about the six types of simple machines: pulleys, wedges, screws, lever, wheel and axle and the inclined plane. Our progress on the lap book has been pretty good. We have finished the majority of the lap book this includes the title page, definitions of the six simple machines and some crafts to show our understanding. We have worked super hard.

SPIRIT WEEK was awesome and it made us excited for the week! Spirit week is the last week before March break, every day there is some sort of theme. It’s a special week to promote more school spirit.

Monday was PJ day. We saw people wearing onesies, sleep masks and more. Everyone looked like they were going to fall asleep in some sort of way. ​Unfortunately we didn’t get any photos. We were having too much fun.

Tuesday was twin or role model day. We couldn’t tell who was who, because there were almost no difference between some people.

Wednesday was crazy day. There were crazy costumes. Some people were wearing clown costumes, underwear on their head, rainbow colored hair and all sorts of props. We also had the talent show with a variety of talent. There was a variety of acts singers, pianists, Dancers, and more.

Thursday was jersey day, people were wearing Raptor jerseys, Blue Jay jerseys, and Leaf jerseys, there was so much team spirit. GO JAYS.

Friday was house games. House games are always fun! We love running around competing with one another. Spirit week is always entertaining too. Its a great way to relax, have fun and boost the school spirit before march break.

Grade 7&8 – Billy and Edward (Feb 21,2020)

On February 6th, we went to the Centre for the Performing Arts for the Gregg LeRock concert. Our school and around three others were there. We watched Gregg and DJ Daveed play some of their most popular songs. Their songs were “La Pizza”, “Terry Fox”, ”Montrez-moi Vos Mains”, “Au Canada”, ”Sous Son Sombrero”, and much more. We were amazed by his talent with the electric guitar. We got to see Gregg and DJ Daveed and also got to come up on the stage with them. Gregg came down and chose some people to come up to the stage with him. They went up and just started dancing. We cheered him on like his fans. Also, during “Au Canada ”, he got the French teachers, including Madame Thompson, to come up and hold the Canadian flag. He also made them hold different types of instruments and play them. They used instruments like cowbells and triangles. Lots of kids in the back had glow sticks, which they waved in the air. There was even this one girl that Gregg showed how to strum his electric guitar, and Gregg gave her a signed Gregg LeRock album. We danced and sang along with Gregg, and it was very fun and exciting. We had a wonderful time at the concert.

Grade 7&8 – Talis and Andrea (Jan 31,2020)

This month we have done many new Interesting things. Although, we specifically wanted to talk about one thing that happened this month that we all enjoyed. This month, we interviewed an entrepreneur named Rick Kojfman. He is an entrepreneur and owns or has shares in many successful companies. He taught us the important values of being a successful entrepreneur. Some of these values include leadership, creativity, persuasion, and many more. He also explained to us his life story and how he became successful in the trials and errors that it took him to get where he is today. He was a great example of what a good entrepreneur should be like and we want to thank him for taking his time to come in and teach us. We feel that this is one of our major highlights of the month.
