Gator Bites: Week of January 14th

posted Jan 18, 2019, 2:56 PM by David Willoughby

Good Evening Gator Families!

This week Mr. Goral’s class participated in some learning at Milton District with our I-Think Team (Integrative Thinking). Here is what some of the students had to say:

From January 15 -17, Mr. Goral’s Grade 7/8 gifted class traveled to Milton District High School to participate in fun, enriching math activities, focusing on linear equations to further our understanding of the concept. We experimented with Pro-Pro charts, programming games in Desmos, and other math challenges that pushed our thinking. We enjoyed our time in the Shift room, and believe that all the other students at the school should get to try out learning this way.

“It makes it interesting to see math from a different view”-Morgan

“It was amazing and fun and awesome and cool”-Kurt

“It was really amazing to get to use these skills and learn different math skills”-Vanessa

“The chairs and stuff were cool”-Fraser                                                                                             

“It was a really cool learning environment”-Lucas

We had our Senior Boys and Girls Basketball tryouts as well as our Boys Junior Volleyball Practices begin this week.  We are looking forward to a great season!! Thank you to our hard working coaches, Mr. Kryzanowski, Mr. Baker, Ms. Robb, Mr.Goral, Mr. Aidoo and Ms. Hunt. Go Gators!

At Sam Sherratt we have our after School Literacy Group for Grades 4-6 start this week.

Wednesday night after school we had 20 eager and willing participants in this year’s after school group. Our first session was focused on setting goals, norms and expectations for our learning. Students were a part of the planning... and the survey says... we want to improve our handwriting, creative writing, reading skills, etc. We plan to honour student voice and make this program engaging for our participants. Next week we look forward to the Primary program starting on Tuesday night! Thank you to the hard work and commitment of our teachers: Ms. Neate, Ms. McKenna and Ms. Belford.

Thank you to the parents who came out this week to our Parent Council! We look forward to our next meeting on Monday, February 4th, 2019 at 6:30pm in our Learning Commons.

Students in K-2 (Ms. Hunt/Ms. Lowry), 2/3 (Ms. McKenna), and the Grade 3s of 3/4 (Mrs. Wheeler) had a special guest presenter in their classes today. A representative from Pizza Nova came in to discuss the ingredients involved in making pizza as well as an interactive step-by-step instructions of how to get the dough ready. Students had the opportunity to flatten, flip, and even toss their dough in the air. As a treat, everyone also received a slice of pizza and a goody bag!  Thank you Ms. Lowry for organizing this fun learning experience for our Primary Students. 

Junior Vex Robotics is continuing Fridays after school (pick up at 5:00 pm).  They are practicing for an upcoming tournament in February. Thank you Ms. Paulson and Mr. Costello for all you great work with our students.

Wanted:  We are looking for Occasional / Supply Lunchroom Supervisors for the 2nd Nutrition Break (12:50 - 1:40 pm).  If interested please contact the school office 905-878-1556.

Our Junior students came out to watch the parade, and then they participated in a dance party and activities in the learning commons. Our Intermediate students had a dance party during the last block of the day, as well as activities being run for them in the LC.  Thank you so much to our new student council for putting together our “Monster Mash” day of fun!

This week at Sam Sherratt our grade 1 students enjoyed a trip to Andrew’s Scenic Acres. Thank you to all of our parent volunteers and our teachers for braving the weather and organising such a fun learning experience for our students!

This year our Grade 5 students took part in the Civix Canada Municipal Student Vote process along with 2000 other schools. Some classes researched and presented the candidates’ platforms in our school ward prior to voting. Students were able to formulate an opinion and compare their vote to the actual results after they were tabulated.  

On Election Day, students came to the Learning Commons and were given an official ballot. They marked their vote behind the screen and placed it in the voting box. What an authentic learning opportunity!

Then a few of our classes went to the Gym to see the actual voting happen.  They had a tour thanks to Mr. Charrey, and saw first hand what they will be able to do when they are legal voting age. Some are desperately waiting to become 18 now! Thank you to Mr. Charrey and Ms. Belford for all of your hard work!!

The Big Crunch:Image result for apples

The Big Crunch occurred on Thursday this week, during the second half of first break. Each student at Sam Sherratt was given an apple at the start of nutrition break, and posed for a group picture as they took a HUGE Crunch out of their delicious apples. We, the student council, had been mentioning the Big Crunch on the announcements for quite some time, and it’s safe to say that the student body was fairly excited. The big crowd of students outside looked up, apples in hand, to see Ms. Byrne and Mr. Goral on the roof, video taping and taking pictures. Down to the count of three, every student took a bite out of their apple, creating a satisfying crunch. The idea of the Big Crunch was to advertise healthy eating and an initiative to help raise funds for Halton Food for Thought. Judging by the taste of those apples, I’m sure students will be eating healthier everyday! Written by S. Edirisinghe

The Monster Mash Activity DayImage result for pumpkins and ghosts

This Wednesday, October 31st, the student council has decided to hold a “Monster Mash Activity Day”, so all students can have a memorable and enjoyable October 31st. We will be holding a Dance in the mall, with music by our Prime Ministers aka. DJ’s PMSQUARED, there will be a movie in the Gym, and activities in the Learning Commons. The idea for our “Monster Mash Activity Day” was brought forward from the student body, via our new Student Council Classroom Representatives.

Our Annual Costume Parade will be happening at 9am, and loved ones are more than welcome to attend.

Good Evening Gators!

This week at Sam Sherratt Author Lana Button, an Early Childhood Educator in Halton and former actress, presented to our JK-Grade 3's  in the Learning Commons. Her presentation was lively and fun. She read her picture books Willow Whispers and Willow Finds a Way to our Gators and left us with 3 important messages:

1. Everybody has a voice and your voice matters.

2. It is important to give everybody a second chance because we all make mistakes.

3. We can all help one another by taking action and getting help. Some of our friends also made "magic microphones" .

Thank you to Ms. Belford for organising this great learning opportunity.

Some of our grade 6 students went on a class trip this week. Thank you to Mr. Charrey, Ms. Litt and Mr. Kerschner for organising this experience. Here is what one of our students has to say about their trip:

On Tuesday October 16, 2018 some grade fives and all grade sixes went on a field trip and walked to the First Ontario Arts Center. The day was so much fun!   The students made coil pots with clay, they did this by making long thin cylinders and shaping them into creative pot designs using balls, swirls, triangles and more. The students learned that when you start the pot you have to make a small circular or rectangular base. The clay the students used was a special type because it did not require heating in a kiln. Students had a great time at the Arts Center and would love to go back! By: Madison Carey 5\6-1
