Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

We hope that all of our students and families enjoy a safe and relaxing Spring Break and Easter holiday.  The school re-opens, Tuesday, March 29th.

Spring Break

This week we shared our Vanier Community Pride. Students used CraftWorld App to create a video.

We used ColourEffects App to show learning about the difference between a story Character and Setting. Students changed the book covers so that the setting is in greys and then traced the characters in colour.

We have also been focusing on Digital Citizenship and Selfies. Several classes contributed to a selfie instruction video with ideas for appropriate selfies. Before you post anything on line, including a selfie, T.H.I.N.K. – Is it Thoughtful and True, Helpful, Important, Necessary and Kind? Make sure your selfie respects yourself and others.

Students have begun to tinker with a Stop Motion Video App. We try out new apps by figuring out the features and how the app works before we begin to create and show learning with the tool. You can check out a first tinker video on Twitter @crosland_a and don’t forget to follow us @georgesvanier36 #gvlearn

Time Change Today!
