The Parents Association’s first Coffee Break of the year took place on Friday – a great place to meet other parents, to hear more about the PA’s plans for the year, and to have a chance to volunteer. If you’re interested in getting involved this year, cliquez ici!
The School Project for 2018-2021 is “Live together, imagine, create: express yourself.” One of the many components of this project is to nurture students’ creativity and develop their skills in problem solving and following a procedure. To that end, the new Thursday Workshops have been put in place for Elementary grades, and other projects have been planned for the Maternelle and Middle School.
La FASP Parents’ Association has allocated an annual contribution of $8,000 for the purchase of supplies and materials to be used in classrooms and during the workshops.
Below you will learn how the funds raised last year have been recently spent to enrich these new projects.
Students learn to follow a procedure, use fine motor skills, and exercise creativity while completing various art projects like basket weaving, sewing, mosaics, and jewelry making.
Learning to navigate encourages critical thinking, develops spatial and mathematics skills, and gets kids outside!
Activities like 3Doodler and Origami Bots combine creativity and technology.
The entire school community gathered on the front lawn of the school on Friday to celebrate the start of another school year. This picnic is always a great chance to meet fellow parents, get to know the teachers, and enjoy a nice meal together while the kids enjoy time with friends. Thank you to the PA for organizing a wonderful event!
Congratulations to our Middle School Science Fair winners, which were announced at the Graduation ceremony.
Grade 6: Colin F. for his solar cell project. He designed and created his own working solar cell!
Grade 7: Zahra L. with her magnetic levitation train model. By adding magnets to the ends of a battery to simulate the train car, she could make it move through a copper coil tunnel. She also built a model metro station!
Grade 8: Maya N. for her research on Tesla coils. She learned about magnetic induction and proved her battery-powered loops would work by lighting a model city without wires!
