As a fun way to conclude our Book Week, we encouraged grade 4 students to dress up as their favorite characters. Here are some of the choices. Can you guess who they are and which book they come from?
In honor of Book Week we are asking students to take some time to take some Book Selfies! What is a Book Selfie you ask? Check out the poster below so you too can join the fun!

If you want to help support her cause she would greatly appreciate it! Here is a link to Red Cross Australia for more information:
Monday, March 7 grades 4-5 had a different start to their morning! The company who is in charge of our school lunches hosted a fun cooking competition for the students called, “Putting Fun Back Into Food”. The host talked about the importance of having breakfast, and knowing the serving sizes for each food group you should have each day. Later, a few select students were chosen to compete against each other in a cook off. They were introduced with their ingredients and then had only 15 minutes to create their dishes. The energy was definitely high and the final products looked impressive!
Make sure to ask your child what they learned from the show, and the serving sizes they should ensure they are getting from all the food groups!
