This week students began caring for and watering their own two trees at KMS. Some students were even singing to and naming their trees!! I have to say I think the trees liked it! Kaia donated some flowers for our garden and in groups we decided where they should be planted. Thank you Kaia and Couch family! Today we participated in the big Jump Rope for Heart event. Students travelled around circuits with their mixed age team and fun was had by all. It was very heartwarming to see older students caring for and guiding younger students.
Next Thursday the LE and UE classes will attend the “Children’s Water Festival” at the Peterborough Zoo. We are still in need of a couple more parent volunteers who have police checks.
Please watch the calendar as there a great deal of things happening in the last few weeks of school!

The items will all be nut free and there will be ingredient lists for those with food allergies. We are asking for a minimum of .25 per baked item purchased. All of the proceeds go towards the UE year end trip. Thank you so much for your continued support.

Students enjoyed admiring their beautiful Artistry hanging in the hallways this week. What a variety of work! This week the LE’s loved scattering wildflower seeds in the backyard and we hope to plant more next week. This activity tied in nicely to our lesson about “The Needs of the Plant.” Students have been practicing their Drama play diligently and enjoyed a walk in the woods for Gym.
On Wednesday, students will again enjoy the opportunity to participate in a pottery workshop. Rehearsal for Showcase takes place on Thursday and students are to be dropped off at Grace United Church (Howden and Monaghan St.) between 8:30/8:45. Friday at 5p.m. is the actual Showcase event for Parents and family.
Please ensure your child brings a labelled water bottle to school for use in the classroom, at gym and outside. If anyone has any wildflower seeds they would like to donate we will be happy to accept them for our backyard planting.
Have a safe and happy long weekend!
This is a friendly reminder to all LE, UE, and MS families that Music Class this Wednesday (tomorrow) is the first Showcase run-through. Kids need to have all their props, music, books, acts etc. here at school and be ready to perform for their class during Music Period.
This week in Lower Elementary students have been on a Geometry craze lately!! They have enjoyed making huge designs and cool patterns. Take a peek at the website as we have posted some of these great creations. Students also enjoyed working on their pottery creations for Art and it was thoroughly enjoyed.

Today students attended the “Jump Rope for Heart” kick off presentation and information will be coming home soon about it.
Next week be sure to attend our Gallery of Art hanging in our hallways.
Have an amazing weekend and enjoy some outdoor time!!
LE students have recently started a new unit called “Une Maison pas comme les Autres.” This is an amusing unit that teaches vocabulary associated with “une maison,”(a house) and “les immeubles.” (furniture) The theme is based on alien houses and their unique designs. The culminating task for this unit will be to design “une maison” for an alien family and label it with French vocabulary. C’est tres amusant!
Happy May and Happy Spring, Finally! With the warm, spring weather, students were able to enjoy some extra time outside with a hike in Burnham Woods. Here, students added to their nature sketch books and enjoyed playing some fun games.
Expert day wrapped up with a successful presentation to parents. The students were excited to share what they learned about their famous artist. Thank you to everyone who made the time to come out to this event!
We finished off the week with “May the fourth be with you” also known as Star Wars day. We had many students dress up in costumes, wear Star Wars t-shirts and do their hair like specific characters.
