Warm start to fall

The lovely warm weather continues for another week so we can look forward to some beach play. Amazing finds last week at the park: a barred owl, a stink bug, and crayfish!

The students did Orange Shirt Day activities and were very respectful at our first assembly. It is hopeful to see the work of truth and reconciliation manifested in student participation and understanding. As I spent the weekend recreating on this beautiful land, I reflected with gratitude and a stewardship ethic on how  nature’s beauty and bounty sustains all the human and non-humans that live here.

Our learning continues this week with a focus on squirrels. We have enjoyed watching their antics as they gather tree seeds for their winter caches. Please send a toilet paper roll for a craft on Monday. (I have a bag of extras so if everyone tries to remember to bring one, we’ll have enough even if some forget). We’ll also be making and finding patterns and preparing for Thanksgiving through art and stories. The school is having a Book Fair this week in the library. Check it out!
