Question of the Month
Two students in Mr. Perks class found what looks like beaver marks high up on a tree (sorry for sideways photo). Their question is, if they are beaver marks how did they get there?
New Health & Physical Education Curriculum
Please see the facts about Ontario's new Health & Physical Education Curriculum. A parent guide can be found here.
It has been a long time coming but we are almost there. Our out door classroom is almost complete, just need to add some seating. Mr. Bradley & Cameron's class estimated we would need 20 cubic yards of mulch. Our Grade 4,5, & 6 students spent all of a Friday finding out. See the photo's below.
Peek a boo!
One never knows what they will see in Mud Lake, or better yet WHO will see you. This Eastern Screech Owl was checking out Mrs. Little's Gr. 1/2 class last Friday. Thank-you to www.onion.photo for the photograph.
Thanks to the amazing work of Lisa Glithero from the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa and Quebec-based videographer, Sira Chayer, we have a video that captures our unique approach to making outdoor learning a part of our teaching practice.
GO Sens GO!!!!
Thank-you to everyone who make it out for our Arts Night! We had a tremendous outpouring of support and we were thrilled to see so many of our families there. Everyone was completely blown away by the students art work. We were also fortunate to have our school Trustee Theresa Kavanagh and MP Dennis Bevington who represents the North West Territories join us. He was very impressed with students work and our fundraising efforts for Northern Neighbours. Together we raised $287, an amazing amount. Thank-you to our students, teachers, and parent community! Again we live up to our motto "Small in Size Big in Heart".
Nature Canada Video Project
This fall the students of Regina Street Public School were asked to colour a variety of pictures. These were frames to put together and animated for a Nature Canada video. The following is the animated movie "Species at Risk in the Ottawa NatureHood". The video also features narration from three of our own students.
