Calling all Vegetarians🥗 and Omnivores🍖

[A message from Luke You in Grade 11]

If you are either a vegetarian or an omnivore, please help me with my extended essay project! I’m aiming to find out if a person’s diet affects their training performance when performing a simple exercise, comparing meat-eaters with non-meat-eaters.
What I’ll ask you to do:
A simple daily workout that doesn’t require more then 3 min per day, and will be completed within 3 weeks.
Please contact me if you’re interested or for more information. Open to both students and teachers.
Luke(Huai-Ren) You

Decluttering 2018

Decluttering is fast becoming an annual event…

This year it will take place on June 5th-7th in the PAC and run in a very similar way to last year.

As you approach the end of the year any items that you do not want any longer but that could be used by other teachers should be set aside and brought to the PAC for redistributing to other members of staff.

Grade 2 students will be instrumental in the Decluttering process and will be in touch with you nearer to the time with suggestions and offers of help.

Our goal is not only to declutter our classrooms but to reduce waste, recycle, rethink and refuse by reducing the amount of new items that we purchase.

PS and the Leavers’ March

Primary Teachers: A Middle School student will come by your classroom around 9:15 to give you a 5-minute warning that the Leaver’s March is going to begin.

Please have your students come out into the hallway and line the hallways. (Organize where you will stand ahead of time so that there is an even distribution in the hallways.) Leave room for the G12 students to walk through.

G12 students will walk from the PAC, past the LS room, past the G5s, G4s, down the EY hallway, turn into the G1 and 2 hallway and then out to the Spider Web. 

The PS students will clap as the G12 Leavers pass by.
