Welcome to a new school year!

Welcome to all Dragons! It’s wonderful to see many familiar and new faces in my classes.

Today was our first official day and it was a busy one. I hope all of you were able to wake up on time and find all of your classes. Make sure to get all of your school supplies this week so that you are organized and ready to learn.

Good luck this school year and I look forward to working with all of you!

Clean Sweep Week

The Humanities 8 class began their stewardship of Fleetwood Park today during the city-wide Clean Sweep Week. We spent the morning picking up litter along 80 Avenue and in Fleetwood Park and collected 2 bags. As a treat for Feel Good Friday, we ended our garbage collection with 10 minutes on the playground.

We will be continuing to take care of Fleetwood Park by picking up litter every 1-2 weeks and logging how much we collect.

Houses of Worship field trip

What a day it was! We visited four houses of worship: a Hindu temple, Muslim mosque, Sikh gurdwara and Christian church with the rest of the grade 8 class. At each site, we got to take in new sights and learn about each religion from an expert. We were even fortunate enough to take part in langar and have a wonderful meal at the gurdwara. The students asked good questions and were respectful and open-minded participants in the experience. I look forward to hearing your impressions of the trip tomorrow.
