Hello! This is Deigo, the reporter for South Peace News from Joussard School, bringing you our news.
Our whole school is very proud of our Hand Games Team. Five teams attended the tournament in High Prairie Elementary School and we are thrilled to announce that our team was the winner! They won a fabulous, unique trophy in the shape of a tipi. The trophy is now stored in the office so everyone can admire it and be proud of our team.
The students in kindergarten have been busy figuring out how to get their fingers to work together to make the Itsy Bitsy Spider climbing the water spout action. This is one of the songs they will be performing during our Spring Concert on April 25.
In Grade 1, our students have been working very hard on their math and L.A. skills of course, but they have also put lots of work into their Jungle Rhythm Dance performance for the concert. They have become pretty great dancers!
Grade 2 students are learning all about three Canadian communities. They are also learning how to be great soccer players. The nice weather has allowed the soccer games to move outside.
In Grade 3, the students are challenging their brains in science. They are making towers that are 50 cm tall and can support 50 grams. The students are proving they are up to the challenge.
Students in Grade 4 have been spreading melodic sounds all over the school as they practice songs on their recorders in preparation for our Spring Concert.
Grade 5 kids have been showing how clever they are as they learn all about watts and kilowatts in science. They are also pleased to announce that they challenged the Grade 6 class to a soccer match at recess time and had a great time, while also pulling off a win!
And in Grade 6, the students have been kind of sad because they are saying goodbye to Wendy Moostoos. She is the student teacher who has been part of their classroom for five weeks and whom the children have really grown attached to.
The students and staff of Joussard School wish Moostoos all the best as she completes her university courses and hopes she remembers Joussard School when she’s looking for a job as a new teacher!
We are all looking forward to our Spring Concert on Monday, April 25. We didn’t have a Christmas Concert this year because we were moving schools. We decided to have a concert in the spring instead. We hope everyone attends and enjoys our first production on our new stage.
