Thanks to the grade 7-8 students for setting up the chairs for tonight's Town Hall meeting and for assisting with the Book Fair set up.
Students wrote their final Science Unit Test on "Systems in Action" this morning. This was a Physics unit and contained a lot of mathematical formulas.
This afternoon we continued some preparation for the History/Language/Drama videos.

I hope to see you tonight.

Science Day Success!

Today was our Science Day! 
The students presented some great projects with some very interesting twists. My main objective with this assignment is that students learn to use the Scientific Method of Inquiry. Thank you to all who were able to make it out to see the projects. 
Enjoy the pics.
Please remember to be at school by 8:30 tomorrow morning for the Art trip.

Science week is going great so far! Even though it has not been their specific day the grade 7-8s have had the opportunity to observe demonstrations and were a big help yesterday with the Kindergarten Science vacation.
Tomorrow is their big day!
A reminder to get to school on time to set up your project in the gym.
Parents can come by in the afternoon before 2:20 to see the projects if you wish.
Have a great night!

Happy Friday!!
This morning in Math we investigated the formulas for volume of prisms and pyramids.
Students were given the task to calculated the volume for a variety of figures.
No Math homework!
In Language we played "20 Questions".  Jack was having great success so it turned into a game of Jack versus the world! Although the "world" won in the end Jack put up a great fight!
This afternoon in Science the students completed the chapter six "quiz".  A unit review will be completed next week followed by the unit test.
A few reminders:
Please return the Art trip permission form
Students should be working on Science projects: due May 15th.  I will expect a progress report on Monday.
Have a great weekend!
