Thursday, March 15 Term 2: Communicating Student Learning reports issued

Mrs. Janzen & Mrs. Turik’s class is hosting a bake sale after school in the primary undercover area. The inspiration for this fundraiser came from a beautiful story “Beatrice’s Goat” as part of their unit on learning about different types of communities. The story is about how a girl in Uganda and her family receive a goat as a gift. The unit and story led to some rich discussions and the students then wanted to try to raise money to buy a goat to help others in positive and sustainable ways. Please bring a Loonie and come support our amazing Kindergarten leaders in their fundraiser!
