Gator Bites: Week of April 23rd

posted Apr 23, 2018, 6:56 AM by David Willoughby ‎[Staff]‎

Dear Gator Families,

This week at school we had some exciting activities taking place. In addition to our after school Junior Literacy and Math Clubs, we began our Intermediate Sphero Club that will run on Mondays and Wednesdays for 6 weeks. Our Learning Commons was bustling with activity throughout the week as students took part in our Tuesday MakerSpace Club that worked on a Zipline activity, Thursday’s Poetry Club, and Friday’s Sphero Club. We held our Intermediate boys and girls soccer team tryouts. Classes were also invited to the Learning Commons throughout the week to work on design and build challenges using Cubelets as part of World Creativity and Innovation Day.

Grade one and two students went to visit Mountsberg for a day of outdoor education. Thank you to our teachers, and many parent volunteers who made this trip such an exciting success!

Some classes also put on their gloves and took part cleanup projects for Earth Day coming up on Sunday, April 22.

Finally, we are sad to say goodbye to Mr. Massari who has contributed so much of his time and talents to the students at Sam Sherratt both in class and with the many clubs that he helped to run, including Vex Robotics, Knitting Club, Car Club, and the after school Literacy and Math clubs. He will be missed! However, we are happy to welcome back Ms. Wheeler who will be coming back to us on Monday.

Reminder: The weather has made our fields very wet and muddy, please keep this in mind and send children to school with the appropriate outdoor clothes, as well as a change of clothes if needed.

In Partnership,

Maggie Parker, Principal

Bita Watts - Vice Principal

and the Staff of Sam Sherratt
