What’s happening at Saseenos elementary school

Elementary school reporters are providing updates in school activities

On April 15 – 19, Saseenos had a fantastic literacy week!

One of the activities that took place during the week was the spell-a-thon.Thanks to the pledgers who helped our school raise $577.70.

We also had a pajama day on the same day as our first pancake breakfast! The delicious breakfast was provided by the Lions Club. We give big thanks to them for giving us a great morning. Another activity was our book exchange. That’s when people bring in unwanted books and exchange them for a different one. We also had a fun contest where the school staff took pictures hiding behind different books and you had to guess who they were.

May 2 – 7 was the Scholastic book fair! There were many books to choose from. Saseenos raised $764 for new library books.

The Grade 4/5 class registered as a Student Vote school and voted for Juan de Fuca candidates.  We learned a lot about government.

The Grade 3/4 class has a new student teacher who has brought them fun things to learn, like juggling!

The Kindergarten class also has a new student teacher who has had a great time teaching them.

The Grade 2 class has been growing Coho salmon eggs for the last four months. They recently went on a field trip to release them in Demamiel Creek for adulthood. They all loved the experience of watching the salmon grow.

On May 10 we had a talent show. All of the amazing performers were great while singing, playing an instrument, etc. Another fun event is the spring fair coming up on May 24. Some of the games that will be there are bouncy castle, cake walk, plinko, etc.

Over the weeks we have had many Aboriginal oral storytellers. We have learned many fascinating things!

Thanks to everyone who came.
