Final Fruit Face-Off Salad

For our final Fruit Face-Off today our students needed to think back to all the fruits they tasted during since our Fruit Face-Off days began.

Instead of 2 fruits today, students' received a fruit salad with a bunch of familiar and unfamiliar fruits.

Inside this fruit salad were some, but not all, of the fruits you have been given to try since day 1.

The challenge was to write down 2 things:

1. The fruits that are inside the fruit salad.
2. The fruits that are missing from the fruit salad.

Students who figured out which fruits were inside and not inside their fruit salad cup, wrote down your answers and sent it down to the office for a draw. The winning answer will win the prize for their whole class.....an extra fruit day of their favourite fruit next Monday for their whole class!....

.....and the results are in... the winning class for the extra Fruit day of their choice is......Mrs. Einhorn's 1/2 class!!! Congratulations enjoy your fruit treats kids. 

We want to thank our School Council for bringing this terrific Healthy Schools initiative to our school; especially Mrs. Benzaquen who applied for the grant and organized the initiative.  We also want to thank the many parent volunteers who spent their Monday mornings cutting up fruit for all our students.  THANK YOU!

We are proud of our students for not being scared to try new foods and for displaying their growth mindset.  We hope you are able to continue such experimentation at home and help your families try new foods and make healthy choices.

New Year's Day

January 1 marks the New Year in the Gregorian calendar, and is celebrated by many communities world-wide.
Korean New Year was originally a lunar festival, called Son-nal, held at the beginning of the second new moon after the winter solstice (December 21 or 22). Nowadays, New Year's is often celebrated on the solar New Year, January 1st. Many Korean families use this day to honor ancestors, have special food, and play traditional games.
Oshogatsu (January 1-3) is an important festival for many Japanese people. Some gather with friends and families to say good-bye to the old year at forgetting parties.

Character Assembly on "Integrity"

Our Character Assembly this month will be focusing on "Integrity". Throughout the month, our students have been discussing what integrity means to them in the classrooms and with their friends in the school yard. Our students are learning that to have integrity means to be truthful and sincere; to care for the well-being of others by how they treat each other. Displaying integrity is not always easy. It is one of our most difficulty character traits to live by and sometimes it takes years to truly understand what it means.

We look forward to honouring those students who have displayed this trait at our awards assembly on Wednesday, October 28th at 11:15 a.m.

Parents and guardians are welcome to join us.  We thank Mr. Clark and Ms. Croteau's grade 2/3s for hosting the assembly this month.


"Integrity is doing the right thing even if it's difficulty; even when no one is watching." 


"If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it."
