Learning Commons News!
The 3D printer has been buzzing with activity this week in the Vanier Learning Commons. Students are always interested to check out the latest projects. We use the printer to design, create and problem solve.

And we have been focusing on our Kindness Counts theme using a quote from Maya Angelou “Be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud”. Students designed rainbows to help share their message and decorate the hallways. We shared a thought provoking story by Jacqueline Woodson called ‘Each Kindness’.
