The scene at Saseenos elementary school

Student reporters write about what is happening at their schools

Saseenos elementary school celebrated Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 14, 2014. And along with that, Mrs. George’s Grade 2/3 class hatched 400 salmon eggs! Mrs. Haddad’s class had the Scientist of Week program where each kid chose an experiment, then talked about it. They also had to perform the experiment in front of the class.

Lunch time floor hockey was a big hit with our Grade 3, 4 and 5 students. There were four different teams: The Icebreakers, Shishkebabs, Spartans and Superstars. There were gold, silver and bronze medal winners. The Superstars won gold! Thanks to Mrs. Haddad for organizing the floor hockey.

The ArtsReach people came in and gave two classes (Mrs. Symington’s and Mr. Sulzen’s) a presentation about how to add texture to your paintings. Kids in the Grades 3, 4 and 5 participated in a Rainbow Loom bracelet sale to raise money for Hannah Day. They raised around $150!

Mr. Sulzen’s class worked on a car project where every student built their own car and raced it down a small ramp. The three cars that went the farthest were Sydney’s, Luke’s and Connor’s. The reason their cars went the farthest was because Sydney’s car had roller-blading wheels, Connor built a home-made miniature 18-wheeler and Luke built a small car with slick wheels.

Our choir students will be performing at the Sooke Spring Sing Out at the local high school. They have been working very hard and are excited about their performance.

Saseenos Elementary School had their first snowfall in years. Sadly, the ice had to be salted to keep all the kids safe but we still had a little fun.
