John Muir elementary school rocks

Sooke student reporters write about what is happening at their school

Student reporters write about happenings in their schools. This week it is John Muir’s turn.

Welcome to John Muir Elementary School.

Our school is kind and nice. There are 200 students. On January 23rd we had Rockstar Day. We were able to dress up as a Rockstar and dance at our sock hop.

We have Pink Day soon. Lately we have been having a lot of special days. We have been learning about nature. Our school has been doing composting. Composting is good for our environment. We do it every da and you should too.

Next week our gymnastics equipment will be put up. We also have WITS program to stand up to people being mean in a good way. There are many Jaguars to make friends with. We have peer helpers to help littler kids.

We asked some Jaguars what they like about our school. Here’s what they said:

Annika said, “It’s a good school.”

Our principal said the boys and girls in the school and their great enthusiasm to learn and help each other.

Nayla said, “It is awesome,” and she likes it.

Courtney thinks it is fun.

Rasheeda tells us that it is the best school in Sooke! “My brother likes it.”

We keep our school clean. We have a kind, nice school. It is awesome. Lots of friends are here. We have lots of music, teachers, and reading. We rock like Jaguars! The people are awesome. WE LOVE OUR SCHOOL! WE ARE THE JAGUARS!!
