Some of our grade five classes had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Scott Stephen, a historian from Parks Canada, on Friday morning. The students had a number of questions for him about the fur trade, and he was able to provide some pretty amazing answers. Thank you very much Dr. Stephen for visiting our school and for making our inquiry into the fur trade much more meaningful!
I couldn't believe this when I read it. Apparently, scientists in Russia have been able to grow a flowering plant from some 30,000 year old frozen seeds. The story can be found here.
Thank you to our School Resource Officer, Constable Chris Saint Cyr for spending time at our school on February 14th. Constable Saint Cyr helped us celebrate ''I Love to Read'' month by reading to our students in the library for part of the morning. We appreciate your time very much!
We also held an ''I Love to Read'' draw this week. In order to enter, students had to listen to a passage from a mystery book over the morning announcements. If they could guess what book the passage came from, they were able to enter the draw. This afternoon we drew four names, and the winners were able to choose a prize from a selection of new books. Congratulations to the four winners!
We're setting up a small fish tank in the library. Come check it out and watch for the fish's arrival in the near future.
