This week at school, we will be going to a Parks Canada display at the Old Firehall on Friday at 11:30 a.m.  We are looking at their latest display on wildlife, fire and national parks. At 1:00 the same day, there will be a guitar band coming from the region to treat us to a special performance in the gym. Come join us for either activity if you are able !

I asked the students to bring in a 1 or 2 litre milk carton for an earth day recycling craft.  Please try to have that in class by next Monday. Thanks !

I have two White's tree frogs in the class for a while for the students to learn from.  They are safe to handle, given that you wash your hands after holding or touching one .  I have invited the students to
stay after class this week if they'd like to hang out with a frog!

Have a wonderful week !
