Today we did the international OREO challenge with Projects by Jen. We stacked OREO cookies to see who could get the highest number. We had a lot of fun doing it. The highest at Palliser Heighs was 21 by Mme Juteau!
Aujourd’hui on a cueilli les betteraves. On est allé dans notre Jardin de Coeur. On a discuté des parties des plantes. On sait que les betteraves sont les racines. Après, on a écrit dans nos journaux de Petits pousses verts. On a dessiné les betteraves.
We had a great pirate day today! We made hats, read pirate books, danced pirate dances and ate pirate snacks!
Every year we celebrate creativity and art with Dot Day. We read Peter Reynold’s book The Dot and the French translation, Un bon point pour Zoé. We wear polka dot clothes and we paint dots!
On September 15th, the anniversary of the signing of Treaty 4, four classes from Palliser Heights School made the journey to Fort Qu’Appelle to take part in the annual Treaty 4 gathering.
There were lots of fun activities to do.
We loved seeing all the tipis!
We got to witness the treaty annuity payments being made to registered band members. The RCMP officer told us that she had shaken over 3000 hands already that day!
As long as the sun shines, the grass grows, and the river flows, we are all treaty people!
Our class attended the National Aboriginal Day ceremony and celebration in Crescent Park today.
There were many powerful speakers.
We also got to learn about Métis jigging and to give it a try on stage!
We got to listen to many amazing singers.
We got to see Pow Wow dancers in their regalia.
We ended the morning with a balloon release in memory of the students who attended Indian Residential Schools.
With 100% attendance, our class won the top prize for twin day on Friday. We all got gigantic freezies! Thanks Student Council!
