Our (Ms. Gatt and Mrs. Dutchak) totems are all finished. Students learned about the significance of totem poles to the West Coast Indigenous groups of Canada. They studied traditional colours, animals, carving tools and techniques as well as the types of totem poles. Students designed a totem pole piece where the animal and colours chosen represented their strengths and characteristics. This project linked to Social Studies, Visual Art, ADST and the the Personal/ Social Core Competency.
Mr. Dutchak’s class collected items for Peace Seniors Connect and Care as a way to give back to our community. Items were picked up this week and we hope to brighten someone’s Christmas this year.
We also went to the ELC to make support posters for the Trackers 4th Annual Foodbank game. A few of the Trackers stopped by and signed our posters. I huge thank you to Mr. Salinas’ Communication class for helping us design, create and paint our posters!
Just a friendly reminder that if you are emailing the school to let us know of student absences, please email email@example.com. This is the school email and it is the one that is checked by a replacement if Mrs. Selin is absent. Thank you for letting us know when your children are absent, it is much appreciated!
Students at Baldonnel Elementary School built a 10 x 12 shed as part of an ADST project. Please see attached poster for information about how the silent auction will work to sell this project. Feel free to bid if you are interested to support the efforts of students in our District.
