Amazing Sooke elementary school

Elementary schools in Sooke have 'junior' reporters writing on happenings

Each of the elementary schools in Sooke have junior reporters writing about what is happening at their school.

 

There are many things happening at Sooke elementary school.

Smencils, Smencils, Smencils! If you are unfamiliar with what smencils are, they are scented pencils. Mr. Treloar’s class is having a fundraiser and selling them. We raised about $500 for field trips. Mr. Treloar and Mrs. St. Jean arranged a field trip for both of the Grade 5 classes to go bowling at Langford Lanes in the morning and swimming at SEAPARC in the afternoon. Many people hadn’t been bowling very much and it was some of those peoples’ first time.

The Grade 4 and 5 students had a choice of doing track and field. Some of the track and field events were long jump, high jump, 100 meter relay, etc. The track and field event meets are at Belmont secondary school in Langford on June 5 after school and the other event is on June 7 during school.

On Friday, May the 31 was sushi and pizza for all the students.

Last week on Friday, May 24 was Jump Rope for Heart, which is a fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Jump Rope for Heart is a day where there are stations that include jump ropes, drawing on the basketball court outside, and videos.

Fun day is happening soon in June. Fun day is a school day where we just do fun stuff, like obstacle courses. It is all run by the staff of Sooke elementary.

Beach day is another day were we go to a nice beach and have fun with all of our friends all day.

At the end of the year there are Grade 5 and D.A.R.E graduations. If you are wondering what D.A.R.E is it is a program to help kids stay away from drugs and alcohol.

As you can see, Sooke elementary is a busy place.
