You may have heard from your student that I am not returning to Highroad next year. God has led my family and I to move to Morinville, Alberta. Please join me in praying for Highroad in finding my replacement.
I need two parent volunteers for our fieldtrip on June 9. We will be kayaking, doing art of our surroundings, and a science lab. You will need a current police check with the office to go and would need to drive there. Please let me know asap.
If you do not use your Chilliwack newspaper, please have your student bring it on Monday for an art project. We will be doing a papier-mache activity.
The Grade 5 students in my class were growing potatoes in pots. Unfortunately, due to the very wet weather, our potatoes did not survive. They were rotten. I will be buying some potatoes for a potato party this week Thursday. I still want to celebrate the hard work and dedication that the students did to try to make the potatoes grow. We still were able to use our science skills of observation, measurement and graphing, and critical thinking and analyzing to be able to reflect on the outcome.
We have been invited to attend the Highschool production of the Highroad Star this week on Friday so we will be doing our last Genius Hour on Thursday this week. I will be asking each student to present what they have done for Genius Hour this year.
