Thinking Green

The weather outside may be frightful, but we are thankful we have our Prescott Tower Gardens to keep us thinking green!  We used our first harvest to make green smoothies – check out our blog post on the PSD70Green blog here to see pictures and student writing. It has taken no time at all for there to be an abundance of greens on the Tower Garden again, so tomorrow we will be having salad for lunch.  We will provide all the greens, and if you are able to supply us with an additional salad fixing (eg. cucumbers, peppers, cherry tomatoes, grated carrots, a salad dressing, etc.) it would be much appreciated.  Please send your child with their normal lunch – this will just be a nutritious addition.

Do You Want to Build a Snowman? An Oilers Snowman?

We are pumped for playoff season in Grade 3, and had fun showing it on Wednesday!  Last night, we even found a class in San Jose that is interested in connecting with us for a little friendly rivalry over the games.

This morning I saw this tweet on Twitter and thought how much fun it would have been to build Oilers snowmen at school – but today is a holiday!  If anyone is willing to have some fun showing our playoff pride with a little snow sculpture today, please take some pictures/videos for us to share with our new San Jose friends next week!

Wednesday Treats!

To help celebrate having playoff hockey this year, students and staff are welcome to wear their favourite team jerseys or colours tomorrow to help build that playoff spirit.

Also, beginning tomorrow Grade 3 students are able to check out the Prescott Pit Stop hosted by the Prescott Players One Act Club.  Please check out this link for items and prices. Your support is much appreciated!


Wednesday’s Celebration of Learning at Prescott

Thanks so much to those who sent in empty Kleenex boxes for us!  We are happy to take more if you have some at home and will put them to good use during tomorrow’s Celebration of Learning.

Just a reminder that the morning activities will run from 8:30 to 10:30 am, and you are welcome to drop in and visit your child at any point during this time.  We recognize that this morning time may not work for everyone, and so welcome those parents during the evening times of 5:00 – 7:00 pm.

Celebration of Learning

Welcome back to school!

We are busy preparing for our Celebration of Learning Wednesday morning (from 8:30-10:30 am).  Grade 3’s will be conducting a number of Science experiments focusing on Sound and Hearing.  We are in need of empty Kleenex boxes, so if you have any you are willing to share, we would love to take them off your hands!  Please send them with your child to school Tuesday.  Thanks!

“ View into Your Child’s Learning Journey at Prescott

Prescott Learning Centre would like to invite all parents and guardians to our …

“Celebration of Learning” on Wednesday, April 5, from 8:30 am – 10:30 am.

Similar to our Student Learning Conferences in December, the students will take the lead in describing and reflecting on their learning while the learning is taking place.  Please keep in mind that this is your opportunity to conference with your child. Although the teachers will be in the classroom at this time, they will be facilitating the class as usual.  Please feel free to come by the school and visit your child in his/her class for 15 minutes during this two hour block, and see the “learning in action”.

If you are unable to make it during the morning of April 5, we will also be opening our doors that evening from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm.  This will be the same format, so no appointments are necessary and students are required to attend.

We can’t wait for you to join us in experiencing “A View into Your Child’s Learning Journey at Prescott” as students collaborate, create, learn and share!
