It has been great to see all of our students and families back at school this week. We especially enjoyed April Fools Day and Crazy Hair Day on Friday!
Organics and Recycling
Did you know that GV and all Surrey Schools recycle paper, plastic, metal and organic waste? Ask your child to learn more!
Walk to School
Now that the weather is so pleasant, we really want to encourage our students and families to walk to school. Walking to school wakes up the body, activates the brain, reduces traffic congestion and helps our environment. Thanks for leaving your cars at home and walking to school.
Learning Commons News
Digital Portraits, 3D Prints and Popplet
What a great self portrait. Students used Doodle Buddy app to take a selfie, traced the photo and then removed the background image. Nicely done!
We created a very cool pencil and notepaper holder with the 3D Printer. Division 23 decided to give it to the secretaries to use in the office. Students made a card full of hearts for the special delivery. #KindnessCounts at Vanier.
We explored story beginning, middle and end with Popplet. It was the first time for many students using this creative tool and we can think of lots of other ways to show our learning with this app. Stay tuned.
And don’t forget to check out our large collection of eBooks here. Lots of great titles available. Perfect for bedtime stories.
