Recess has been very fun but very muddy and dirty this week. I will be sending home a lot of winter gear today for some kids that needs a good washing. Please make sure that your kids have a hat, gloves, boots and snow pants back at school for tomorrow.

Thank you to everyone who was able to come and see the kids’ hard work this morning. I’m incredibly proud of them. In addition to the information that they learned about our world, they have started to learn research skills, different ways to share information including the use of technology and presentation skills.
