Student of the Week

Mainly for her leadership at Gesstwood on Tuesday, Pellar gets the nod for SOTW.  Throughout the day at the Ropes Course, Pellar was consistently seen encouraging others, leading the group on the high climbs, and showing a positive attitude.  Beyond all that, Pellar is always there to lend a hand in class, whether it’s to put up an absent student’s chair, or to help with a spill of pencil crayons.  Great attitude and kindness, Pellar!

Leave your congratulatory messages for Pellar here.

Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Tuesday was a delightful day for a field trip; the weather couldn’t have cooperated more!  Everyone seemed to enjoy the activities and many showed no fear when it came to scaling the trees!  Photos are a few posts below this one if you haven’t already taken a look.

I’m hoping our next field trip will occur in the next week or so.  I’d like to take 6M to see the movie “Wonder”, which is a story about a boy with facial deformities going to school for the first time.  It’s a roller coaster ride of emotions but it addresses friendship, bullying, inclusiveness and personal struggles.  Beyond this, it also coincides with the grade six health curriculum topic of self concept/awareness.  Right now, I’m trying to nail down a date during this busy season.  Stay tuned for details.

Math was a treat this week, as I’d posted on Dojo.  We had many suggestions on how to find out who was taller in 6M, the boys or the girls.  We tested a variety of student theories, none of which gave us a conclusive answer, but the discussion and debating was fascinating; true learning in every sense of the word.  If only you could have been there to witness it!  This was a springboard for our new math unit on data management.  Once we did some fair number crunching and calculated the mean/average, the boys prevailed as the tallest (despite the majority of the class thinking it was the girls initially).

The 6M and EPS newsletters have been posted here.  Have a look for what’s in store this month, both within the walls of 207 and school wide.

Enjoy the first weekend of December!
