Thank you for checking out the latest news for our school. Here is what we have for you this week.
Happy 2021! In CEPA we kicked our year off with Mme Heidi’s grade five class helping to load in firewood into our wall tent, and then we examined the traditional techniques used by the Dene to harvest moose. Mme Heidi was kind enough to bring in some moose meat from the moose that her family harvested over the holiday. Mme Rachell’s Grade 2 students hung their bird feeders, practiced their sewing skill and did a mini research project on the animals of the north and the tracks that they leave. Mme Emma’s Grade 1 class took some quiet time in nature (place en paix) and then we talked all about whitefish while fileting and frying up some whitefish for everyone to try. (thank you for sharing the fish Sheila!) Mme Jess’s Grade 1 class is continuing to improve their skiing abilities, this week we worked on weight transfer by putting our nose over the ski thats gliding, and our turning abilities by weaving through pylons with lots of little side steps.
Our PAC is hard at work planning out the next set of Subway lunch dates. We don’t yet have them confirmed. However, once we have them, we will post a special message to our webpage in order to advise you. Thanks very much to our PAC for their hard work in providing this opportunity for our students.
The JHS PAC will be selling West Coast Seeds as a fundraiser this year. 40% of profits of seed sales will go directly to PAC to support various activities throughout the year. Please use https://fundraising.westcoastseeds.com/collections/all to order your seeds online with a minimum order of $10. Fundraising sale ends 19 Feb 2021 at which time all orders will be sent to the plant sale organizer who will then distribute individual orders. Tell your friends and family about the sale, they can order seeds too! Thank you for your ongoing support of the JHS PAC!
