Elementary dance Festival at Centennial theater

This afternoon our class made a splash with a fabulous performance at the Elementary Dance Festival on the big stage at Centennial Theater.

It was hard to take photographs, for which I apologize, because the students were remarkable to see. High-energy, well practiced, and some really fine performances.

Email notification

For email notification of whenever there is a post here I'm testing feed2mail.com.

The address here, btw, is paulclarkenorthvan.blogspot.ca

When you sign up, you'll get email notification within 15 minutes or less of when I post here. The notification is ad-laden, unfortunately, but at least it is fairly immediate.

The gadget to the right, "Follow by email" works fine, except it only sends a summary notification once per day, usually in the middle of the night.

Seymour River Fish Hatchery field trip

The highlight of the day was the opportunity to put on actual hip waders, and get in the river!

Sharing our Science Fair projects

Thanks to the parents and family members who were able to join us last night to show support and marvel at the diverse Science Fair projects from Grades 4 - 7. Great crowd scenes, both during the day with younger and older students, as well as in the evening with parents!
