Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

Yes, the school year will soon be coming to an end, and yet we still have many exciting events filling our month end calendar!

Last week was brimming with deep and active classroom learning, many field trips, grade 5/6 egg drop, Learning Commons Live Dive, maker projects, and TED Talks, to name a few.

This Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. we will come together as a school community for our Year-End Celebration assembly.  At this event we will share learning, appreciation and say farewell to staff leaving GV.

#LIVEDIVE, STOP MOTION, COOPERATION

This week we celebrated World Oceans Day and joined in two #LiveDives off Vancouver Island. Students were able to see the scuba diver and ask her questions about what they observed under the water. Students tweeted and the Fish Eye Project team replied. Check out some of these great questions here on our #LiveDive Storify

Division 8, Grade 4 class created an instructional video for Kindergarten students on how to line up using our plush toys from ‘Stuff the Learning Commons’

How to Line Up from Anna Crosland on Vimeo.

Grade 3 and Grade 2 students showed that Cooperation Counts and created pages for an I Spy book. They also included Kindergarten students in the design process. It was a great way for 65 students to work together on one project. Slide share of the book coming soon. Here’s a sample page. Can you find all of the items?
