Today we had a visit from race car driver Dave Connelly. He came and spoke with the students and then did some doughnuts on the playground. Needless to say the students were pretty impressed. Check out the video below! After school we headed to Fortino’s on main street and had a bake sale and BBQ, 100% of money raised went directly to SWO!
On Friday, we spent some time outside noticing some of the seasonal changes occuring around the school. Students were asked to collect about 10 leaves on our walk outside. When we can back in, we counted our leaves using ordinal numbers, we sorted them by size and then tried to make patterns. Students were very interested in which trees the leaves had come from so we spent some time using a website that helped us identify the name of the trees. After the students did some rubbings.
Next Monday, October 15th, we will be hosting a Fuel 4 Kids fundraiser with Fortinos and Fuel 4 Kids charity. All proceeds go directly to SWO. This fundraiser has 2 parts:
1. Race car driver: Dave Connely, will be coming to SWO with his race car, will give a little talk on the pavement, and then do a couple of donuts on the pavement before loading the car and heading to Fortinos.
2. BBQ, 4-7 pm at Fortinos on Main St. The GO Girls will be hosting a bake sale and there will be gift baskets to be raffled off.
Hope to see you there!
Each month we spend some time reflecting on the events of the previous month. As a class we brainstorm and try to pick one meaningful event. Students created a rough copy and then spent some time editing their work (with the help of Ms Persaud). Today we worked on completing our good copy, complete with pictures.
October Scholastic flyers were sent home today. Please return orders by Wed, Oct 17th.
