Important Reminders

It is a very busy time of year, and we have lots going on!  Just a few reminders:

  • Our students loved our field trip to the Wagner Natural Area, and were excited to learn that there will be free guided tours on Sunday, June 18, focusing on the plant life.  It’s the right time of year to spot those rare yellow lady slippers!  For more information check the website.
  • Our Art Show to support the Wagner Natural Area Society continues tonight.  We raised over $100 on Wednesday, and students were thrilled to have the work on display, and with the many positive comments that were made.  Come check it out from 6-8 pm tonight.
  • We are holding our BYOD presentation tonight in the Collaboration Centre beginning at 6:30 pm.  Some of our students and projects this year will be highlighted in the presentation and we would love to have you join us.
  • Ask your child about our Painted Lady caterpillars, who are currently undergoing their metamorphosis as bug soup!  We were excited to learn that there will be a Painted Lady Butterfly migration in Alberta this year, which only occurs every 10-15 years.  Keep your eyes open this July!  For more information, check this link.

Have a great day!

Scented Sprays at School

It has been brought to our attention that we have students in our building that are highly sensitive to scents. To maintain an inclusive learning environment that is comfortable for all, we are asking that ALL SPRAY cologne, perfume and deodorant be applied at home and not at school. If students need to reapply deodorant after PE or during the day, they will need to use the non-spray type.

We appreciate your support in ensuring a safe, caring and inclusive learning environment for all to learn!

Grade 3’s Are Holding an Art Show!

Dear Grade 3 families,

The Grade 3 students are holding an original Art Show to benefit our local Wagner Natural Area. Art pieces sold by donation will go to support the Wagner Natural Area Society.

The art show will be held at Prescott Learning Centre on the evenings of:

  • Wednesday, June 14th from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm  during the performance of Alice in Wonderland
  • Thursday, June 15th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm during the BYOD information session

Any students who can be at the school during these times to act as hosts are welcome.  We understand June is a busy month with many commitments, and appreciate that not all can attend.

This project covers a wide variety of curricular outcomes

  • Health (Volunteerism)
  • Social (Global citizenship)
  • Math (Money, addition/subtraction/multiplication)
  • Science (Animal life cycles)
  • Language Arts (Present and share)
  • Art

Some students have expressed a want to sell a variety of other items such as cards and candy and we ask that they bring these items in from home on the day of. These are not required as all classes will be creating art pieces, however anything extra brought in for donation will be of benefit to the Wagner Natural Area Society.

Sincerely,

Grade 3 Team

 

 

Volunteers ROCK!

Hello Everyone,

On Monday, May 29 we are having experts from the University of Alberta come in to teach us about the various properties of rocks and minerals and also about potential careers in this field. Students will explore the properties through various tests in order to determine the type of rock or mineral.

We are looking for volunteers who are willing to spend 1+ hrs with us tomorrow morning from 11:00 – 12:00 for some exploration and learning. Our goal is to have more adults to run the 4 stations efficiently for our students.

If you are interested, please send an email to me at kholden@psd70.ab.ca

Thank you!
