What We Learned Today...May 17th

Pitching "Paint Ball Z"

Dragons Den: The day finally arrived! Today the students had the opportunity to pitch their hypothetical business to a panel of "Dragons" who in turn asked questions and gave feedback on their ideas.  I'm so impressed with how amazing the groups did with this assignment, especially with the fact that they were only given two weeks to put it together. A special thanks to Bruce Anderson, Jennifer Buckingham and Adam Reeson for giving up their time to spend the morning with us!

Grade 8 Activities: We spent the afternoon working on Grade 8 Farewell activities with our fellow Grade 8 students from Mr. Rieger's class.  These activities included letter writing, star compliments and designing the cover for our farewell program.

A few more pictures from Dragons Den:

*Fully Alive:

Our class will be starting Theme Three in Fully Alive, titled: Created Sexual, Male and Female.  This theme will discuss sexuality, examine puberty, fertility and identify STIs.  If you would like additional information, please let me know.  I am happy to send a textbook home for you to familiarize yourself with the content your child will be learning.  

Please submit your STAR Pictures to Mr. B ASAP!
