The Mackenzie Holiday Concert will be held in the gym on Thursday, December 20th at 1:15pm. Division 7, under the guidance of our Vice Principal, Ms. Baker, will be performing Rock the Holly. Below is a video so students can practice as needed. Dance practice will be with Ms. Baker on Tuesdays.
As requested, here is the song for your dance. The dancing in the video is not the same as yours and I think the song is shrunk down a bit for your performance, but this still might help those that want to practice a bit and stay familiar with the beat.
Final practice is before recess. Dress Rehearsal is 1:00pm. Performance for parents is 2:00pm. Should be a fun day! Don't forget to wear red!
A fun time was had by all at our field trip to Science World this past Friday. The Pixar exhibit was a very fun and hands on way to see how many popular movies are made. The Omnimax film was a breathtaking and detailed look at the lives of humpback whales. The many exhibits and activities on site were fun ways to engage in science as well (my personal favourite was the video game section downstairs). Just an overall great day! I hope everyone had a great time. Photos are up in Pictures section.
Although I told you all before, it deserves saying again: you did an excellent job of reciting In Flanders Fields at the assembly on Thursday. I was very proud of the effort that everyone put in to learn and perform the poem in such a small time frame. I've posted a video of our final rehearsal in the Pictures section for anyone who wants to watch/show your parents. I hope today you find some time to pause and reflect on Remembrance Day and what it means to you. Enjoy your day off tomorrow and I will see you all back in class on Tuesday.
This Blog will provide updates on what is happening in the classroom, as well as a small peak into the life of the teacher outside of school.
Welcome Students and Parents of Division 7!
I hope that this will be a place where we can better open the lines of communication between myself, the students and the parents/guardians. I also hope to use this space as part of my general encouragement to use various forms of technology to help us learn in different and meaningful ways.
