Our school unveiled the newly carved mask created by artist, Jason Hunt, at the Kwakiutl Big House on June 16, 2016. The artist in residence project allowed students to learn about carving tools and each class was able to see the piece come alive from a block of wood to it being used on the dance floor.
On May 27, Ms. Galloway held a special Science Technology Engineering and Math challenge for the Grade 4, 5, and 6 Project Based Learning classes. Their challenge was to build an earthquake-proof structure out of materials including pipe cleaners, tape, popsicle sticks, straws, toothpicks and elastic bands. Teams were given a set time and then were asked to explain why their structure would hold up in an earthquake.
These types of challenges see students working, thinking, and creating with other students whom they might not necessarily collaborate with in a classroom setting. It was great to see these minds engaged and hard at work!
Changes are coming to how we deliver education to our students! Please read the documents below for more information. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact our school.

From Kirsten in Mrs. Nielsen’s class:
“Buddy reading is a good way to inspire kids to read more. I think it is also good for their social skills. I myself think it’s fun to think of my buddy and sometimes our buddy’s are going to have their own buddy’s.”
