The Hundredth Day - Thursday, February 28th

The students will celebrate their 100th day of school on February 28th. Please bring in a sandwich-sized Ziploc bag with 100 objects inside (ie. popcorn kernels, cereal, paper clips, lentils...). The students will be able to see a variety of ways of representing 100. We will be counting the items and displaying them for a couple of weeks on a bulletin board. We will invite the students to dress up as if they are 100 years old!



Skating (January/February)-CSA Hockey Helmets mandatoryHockey helmet


Skating is part of the Alberta Physical Education curriculum in the Alternative Environments section of the program.  It is the intention that ALL children at Ecole Barrie Wilson will be involved in skating after Christmas holidays as part of Physical Education.  


Physical Education Safety Guidelines requires that all students MUST wear a CSA approved hockey helmet for all ice skating activities.  Bicycle helmets are not permitted as they are not deemed to be safe.

In addition, children MUST wear mitts or gloves and snow pants while skating.


Helmets and ice skates make wonderful Christmas presents for children as Red Deer has an abundance of skating facilities such as outdoor rinks, Bower Ponds and indoor arenas.  Be sure that the helmet has a sticker that says CSA approved.


Classroom skating begins the first week after the Christmas break, and runs until the end of February/beginning of March weather and ice permitting.  Our class will be skating every Tuesday from 10:10-11:10.

Please be advised that if your child rides the bus, they are required to have their skates in a canvas type bag for safety reasons.  

Also, if you have any skates or helmets that you would like to donate to our school, please drop them off at the school’s main office.  

******If you can help tie and/or untie skates during your child’s skating time****** Your help would be GREATLY appreciated!!  

Thank you and we look forward to our skating time!

The Polar Bandit Club is for days when the temperature outside is between -20 C and -30 C.  Currently all students go outside when the temperature is warmer than -20 C with or without the windchill.  Students whose parents have signed the Polar Bandit Club permission form and have the appropriate winter gear (insulated jacket, snow pants, insulated winter boots, hat, insulated and waterproof mittens or gloves and neck protection) will go outside for recess time when the temperature is between -20 C and -30 C (with or without the windchill) for some much needed movement.  The remainder of the students will go to the gymnasium at this time to get their much needed movement by walking laps.  Remember the McKeage Mantra:  "Outside is the best side!"  We are Canadian!  We are Polar Bandits!
