Early Risers Club

We are excited to begin an Early Risers club for grade 5 students. It will run school days (Monday-Friday) from 8:00 - 8:25 in the gym. It is an opportunity for students to come in early, and participate in some physical activity before the academic day begins. Our YES program Success Coach, Mr. J, will be supervising the activities, and generally sets up a few games for kids to participate in. Brain research is clear -- a moving body helps a thinking brain -- so this is a great way to start the day.

A few logistics to be aware of:

-students would enter through the front doors at 8:00 and head straight to the gym

-students would stay in the gym, where there is supervision, until the first bell at 8:25

-if siblings need to arrive at the same time due to transportation logistics, they may be able to join in the activities, or alternately sit on the bleachers to read or watch

-students are able to join after 8:00, so could arrive on the bus and then come to the front doors to access the gym

-the "no tech" rule applies to Early Risers, so no phone use, etc.



Lego Groupies Club

On Tuesdays at lunch recess (11:55 - 12:25), grade 2 students are invited to the library for Mrs. Cooper-Shand's lego club. Come and use your imagination to build! 

Arts and Crafts Club

Mrs. Johnson invites grade 2 students to join her in her classroom at lunch time (11:55 - 12:25) on days 1 and 6 to participate in a variety of arts and crafts activities. It will involve the students exploring their creative side as they engage in a variety of arts and crafts activities. This club will run from March until the end of April.

Mr. Sampson runs intramurals for grade 7 & 8 students during lunch recesses on days 1, 3, 7, and 8. They will start in September with a different sport being played each month. Students sign up and then teams are made by Mr. Sampson. The winning team will get a championship lunch.
