Students have been working hard on their Christmas Concert performances. Friday, classes will be dressing up like a Christmas song. Watch for an email from your student’s classroom teacher. Students continue to have valuable learning opportunities in their classrooms. Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

    This Week in Pictures

    Grade 9 students have been learning about space. Last week students built a space lander for an egg. This week they tested their landers by dropping them down into the flex space. This was followed by placing the landers in hot water (simulating re-entry). The eggs needed to survive the drop landing as well as the heat re-entry. Some students’ eggs survived!

    Grade 3 French Immersion students had so much fun at the Oiler’s game on Monday. Thank you to the many parents that joined us. Thank you also to the Edmonton Oilers and the Give Reading a Shot Program for this great opportunity.

    Grade 5 students are learning about electricity and simple circuits. Students created a hypothesis and then tested their simple circuit by changing one variable (adding more wires, batteries or lightbulbs).

    In Science, Grade Four French Immersion students learned how to make a machine that moves. They tested their creations using the ramp in the hallway.

    Last week, Grade Two students had fun being creative during indoor recess time.

    Community Services

    Thank you to Stephanie Bailey and our School Council for advocating on behalf of our school to bring this program to our school. Many thanks to the City of Beaumont for supporting this.

    The City of Beaumont has provided each school with two family passes for the BSRC.  Families can sign out the pass for one week and use the BSRC for free.  If the pass is not returned on the due date or if it is lost or damaged, a $20 fee will be added to your PowerSchool account.  The pass will be signed out to your child through our library Destiny program.  Once you fill out this form (click on image above), the librarian will sign the pass out and email you when the pass is coming home with your child.  The goal is to have as many families as possible use the pass so we will not reissue a pass to a family that has already signed it out.  Please return the family pass to the school office.
