Parent Compass Points Feedback Meetings Reminder
In The FLASH last week, we invited all Junior School parents to attend a follow-up Compass Points coffee morning on either:
Monday, Feb. 26th @ 8:30 a.m. or
Tuesday, March 6th @ 8:30 a.m.
Both meetings will take place in the Junior School Cafeteria and will cover the same content. For parents who can't attend either coffee morning, we will include a summary in The Flash.
We hope you are able to attend.

In Art, the Grade Fives are continuing their work on their Exhibition accordion books. These books will document their journey through the Exhibition process through various forms of creative expression. Some students have already added collage, word clouds, watercolour paintings and poetry to their books.
Math: Grade 5 has been looking at Data Management. We collected data, recorded and created bar graphs to show the height of our class students in cm. The students learned how difficult it is to create intervals and decide on appropriate titles when creating their own bar graphs!
Exhibition: Our focus this week has been working on our Action component of the Exhibition. There is some great creativity happening in both classes. Thank you for supporting and helping to gather resources to ensure the Action piece is successful.
In PSE class, as part of our “changemakers” theme, we have been using a “choice map” to help answer the line of inquiry, “Can we change our thoughts and feelings?” We read the story, A Bike Like Sergio’s, and used the problem of the main character to map out his choices and help to see the connection between actions, thoughts and feelings. In the story, the main character, Ruben, was faced with the decision to keep the $100 he found and buy a bike like his friend’s, or return the money to its rightful owner. Through mapping, the students discovered that a mix of thoughts and feelings are involved when making choices, but when Ruben wanted to feel proud, happy and relieved, he knew he had to give the money back.
Exhibition is coming up.
Save the Date, Wednesday, March 7th at
