St. Laurent School
Mrs. Crystal Millar-Courchene joined us on Oct 24 to harvest our "Raised Gardens" which is part of our Teacher Idea Fund. In these gardens, we had three of the four traditional medicines growing, including: Sage, Sweetgrass, and Ceremonial Tobacco. Unfortunately the Sweet Grass didn't survive the cold weather but she is now educating our school community around the drying process. Stay tuned!
Over the summer a group of staff came into the school and installed a sensory floor for our students. This floor has been a tremendous success and our students have been loving it. There are several themes throughout the building, including;
Yoga / Stretches
Hawks Ninja Warrior
Next time you are in the building, please take a peek! They are located in front of the gym, grade 7 room, and all around the library.
Teacher Idea Fund
A team of teachers applied and received $166,500 over five years through the teacher idea fund to infuse Indigenous Education into our school. Some of the categories that we received funds for are:
Building Traditional Drums
Indigenous Visual Arts
Building Traditional Moccasins
