'Language in Our Lives'

This week, students in Grade 3 & 4 English Language Arts class began a very special and personal unit of study.  Michael Erard (linguist, writer and proud parent of Iver) created a unit of study with Kelly titled 'Language in Our Lives'.  Over the course of the next few weeks, students will explore and reflect upon their personal experience with language.  Huge thank you to Michael for spearheading this very special project.

Yoga and Relaxation

There is no better way to start the day....than with Emily for Yoga and Relaxation.  Today our Early Childhood students enjoyed their first class with Emily.


This week we began our 'Sugarloaf Friday' trips with grades 2-4.  It was certainly a chilly day but that didn't stop the fun!  Students enjoyed a morning small group lesson, lunch together in the King Pine Room, and an afternoon ski together.  After the afternoon ski, students enjoyed complimentary ice cream sundaes in the lodge!
Huge thank you to our parent chaperones and staff that helped make this trip run so smoothly.

Mosaïque du calendrier agricole de Saint-Roman-en-Gal

This mosaic project was inspired by a Roman mosaic floor from the archeological site in Saint-Roman-en-Gal, France. It is an agricultural calendar where each calendar depicts a season or a type of agricultural activity from the third century. Students represented the panels using grains on a salt dough plaque.
