Dear Students, Parents & Guardians,
We are still planning to go on the field trip tomorrow. I’ve been in touch with the folks at Longwoods Conservation Area and they tell me the roads are clear and the park is accessible. It will be very cold with the wind chill in the morning so please remember to dress in layers and bundle up in appropriate winter gear. On the upside, the fresh snow will guarantee a wonderful snowshoeing experience!
The only factor that would prevent us from going would be no buses running and/or a deterioration in road conditions. Like this morning, I will send out any necessary updates or change in plans via the blog and Class Dojo – likely between 6:00 and 6:30 am. If you hear nothing otherwise, assume your child will need to be at the school for 7:30 tomorrow morning.
For the longest time, voter turnout has been low in Canada at all three levels of government (federal, provincial and municipal). Yesterday’s municipal elections saw only 37% of voters show up in Windsor; 50% in Essex; 44% in Lakeshore; and 46% in Amherstburg. What do you think we should do to increase voter turnout?

Thought we could go cross curricular by building a structure that uses force (science) that was a key siege weapon of the Romans (social studies). I’ve never tried it before but I’m willing to let the class have a shot at it if there’s interest. People could work in pairs and then we could test them. Thoughts?
If you were to be transported back in time 1,000 years ago as a member of the Ska Nah Doht village, what do you think would be the hardest part of living back then? Use information you learned on the trip as well as your own thinking to support your answer.
