People with Down Syndrome have an extra (3rd) chromosome on the 21st pair. That is why we celebrate World Down Syndrome day on the 21st day of March (3rd) month. We celebrate with wearing lots of socks because socks, like chromosomes, come in pairs.
We were very lucky to have been invited to École Ducharme today for the annual raising of the Fransaskois flag ceremony. There were students from École Saint Margaret there as well. We got to hear our MLA Warren Michelson speak as well as our mayor Deb Higgins.
To mark Agriculture Literacy Week we had a guest from Saskatchewan Agriculture in our classroom today. Rachel read Michael and Mia: Stewards of the Land to the class and gave each student a copy. She also shared what she does in her job as a forage specialist. She ended by sharing a funny video. Check it out!
