We had a wonderful day with the Scientist on Monday.  Everyone participated in 4 different centres including fishing with magnets, investigating magnetic toys, predicting which objects were magnetic and exploring magnets with the Scientist.  Thank you to Parent Council for funding this great experience.  Also thanks to the parent volunteers who helped to lead the activities.  Your help is greatly appreciated.
Both classes had fire drills this week and did a wonderful job.
Thank you to everyone who donated coins to the Seeds of Hope Penny Drive.  Your generosity will help fund clean water for many less fortunate.  Both classes were silent for 15 minutes on Thursday.  I was so proud of their efforts.  Way to Go, Room 159!
We have been discussing Earth Day and ways to help the Earth.  The students will be tidying up the school yard on Monday, April 22.  We were delayed on Friday due to bad weather but will try again on Monday.
We are still collecting items for our Afternoon Class Springfest Basket.  Please check the list on the side of the blog to eliminate duplicates.  Our theme is Outdoor Fun.  We are continuing to pass along the book for the Morning Class.  Thanks so much to everyone for your donations to Springfest.
A reminder of our April Sharing Assembly on Thursday, April 25.  We will be presenting a poem about the Earth.
Also on Thursday, we will have a visit from Janeen Brownrigg a local artist.  She will be helping the children create a painting based on Van Gogh.
