Poutine du soir, bonsoir!
This morning, 8th graders explored the Vieux Montreal. The sun was out and the weather was nice. They are now at the Science Center.
On May 31, the middle schoolers celebrated the 8th graders with a Tropical Twist Dance. This was the third and last dance of the 2018 / 2019 school year. We applaud and command the awesome energy and work done by the Student Party Planning Committee (PPC) which was in charge of all festivities in middle school this year. Thank you to all the students of the PPC and special and heartfelt thanks to Mme Addo who kindly lead the group throughout the year!
Enjoy poetry on the blacktop by the main gate today! 5th and 6th graders took their poems out of the classroom for you to read. Thank you to all students and their teachers, Ms. Bunod and Ms. Goulet, for bringing words to life in beautiful, funny and inspiring calligrams!
In May 2019, La Troupe performed twice, for the enjoyment of a parent and student public. This year, the small group of students performed a play in French they chose, reaching out to the author: Le goeland des mers. They did a fantastic job in this dramatic and humorous 5 actor “huis-clos” on a deserted island. Congratulations to Elodie, Coralie, Lilou, Angelo and Richardson, for their acting and drama skills that shined on stage! Congratulations and thank you to Mme Addo, who is an incredibly experienced, talented and inspiring drama teacher!
On May 23, the 8th graders visited the world renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla with a privileged access to three collections. This field trip was part of a series of 3 carefully crafted events designed to inspire the love of science, which were made possible by Chrysa Mineo and Greg Rouse. After a thorough study in science class, the 8th graders interacted live with a team of researchers embarked on a research boat navigating the Gulf of California and studying hydro thermal vents. Then, the Head of the Science Department came to school in their classroom, and finally, the 8th graders went to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The Pier was even especially open to them!
Thank you Chrysa, Greg, and Ms. Jacoway, for making this possible. It was literally inspiring!
Today was the climax of our International Week celebrations! K and 1st graders sang two songs, preschoolers paraded around the school, and then they visited middle school classrooms. They travelled to Canada and experienced a traditional folk dance, to Guatemala where they exercised their memory skills, to India where they enjoyed a dance performance from 6th grade girls and tasted food, to Norway where they admired wonderful landscapes, and Haiti where they learned about the country and played games.
Thank you to all involved, hosts and guests, and all teachers!
