We will be taking the grade 1 classes snow shoeing tomorrow as part of their Physical education program. The snow shoes will be provided, so the students do not have to bring any. Please send warm clothes, snow pants, hat and warm mitts as they will be out for about an hour. This may be some students first time, so we will be taking our time snow shoeing.

We had a great time at the Superstore today! Our grade 1 students were greeted by the Dietician who brought them through the aisles for a nutritional tour! They went on a scavenger hunt for different items, looking at healthy food choices by using the STAR system. They also went back to school with gift bags and a healthy snack! Thank you to the Field Trip factory and Altantic Superstore for a great educational experience for our students!
