Wow! It is hard to believe we are back it for the first school week of 2018! We hope all our families enjoyed a restful and fun-filled break. Thanks for your support over the past months.
The Peace Festival Week leading up to break is always a magical week at Connect. The students participated in several Peace Festival activities and enjoyed some time outside in the fresh dump of snow. The pace and work we engaged in was purposeful, yet felt relaxed and focused. In class we focused on finishing up some work, so we could enjoy a fresh start in January. Students wrapped up their fabric testing in science and we finished the novel study in humanities. We are looking forward to starting new units in the core subjects and welcoming our student teachers.
There is a field trip on Wednesday, January 10th to the Glenbow Museum and Fort Calgary. This is an ALL DAY field trip so students will need to pack a lunch and snacks. As we are walking between the two sites, students must be prepared for the weather, and the current forecast looks like a high of -19 degrees. We could also use 2-3 more volunteers for this trip, as both the Glenbow and Fort Calgary require a high ratio of students to adults. We need a minimum of 8 volunteers and are just barely achieving that ratio. If you can help us out last minute, please send an email.
