Shakespeare comes to Division 4!

This week after much anticipation, casting for our production of Hamlet was announced!

Performances are scheduled for 11:00 AM on Tuesday, June 11 and Wednesday, June 12, 2013.

 Students have asked for either a large role or small role or a backstage role, and I am very pleased with their willingness to be flexible and their excitement for taking part in this wonderful journey.
The first job is to memorize lines, which should happen over the next three weeks. By the time students come back from Spring Break, they should have their lines memorized. That is, they should be "off book". For the largest roles with the most number of speaking lines even that may be optimistic, which is why we started as early as we have.

Meanwhile, report cards went home this afternoon, and parent-teacher interviews are scheduled for next week along with early dismissal for students.

If you cannot come to the school in person to sign up for a time, you can always call the office ((604) 903-3280) and ask if an appointment time can be selected for you.

Skating at Karen Magnussen Arena

Today we went skating, which for many kids was a new experience. For those that knew how to skate, and for those were just learning, it was a great day. Thanks to the PAC for funding this activity!

LOOK at those smiles!

Science Fair at Brooksbank April 18, 2013

Students received the following document, but just in case I have posted it here. Please have a conversation with your child about what project they're interested in. A google search of science fair projects will reveal thousands, but many are too complex for a Grade 4 or 5 student.
You can download the following document here.

Also, I have uploaded a document which guides you through the process. 
It is called "Science Experiment outline". You can download it here.

This is a preview of the document:
