February has past by so quickly and report cards are just around the corner on March 14th. Student led conferences are on March 19th and 20th from 3:45-6:45. Carseland School was fortunate to have Evergreen Theater come visit our school on February 7 and performed Bugged. This is a curriculum related performance that a number of our students dress up and participate in. On February 13th Jenn Cook organized a Valentine karaoke /dance at the school. The students had a lot of fun and the event was well attended. Thanks Jenn for your continued support of the school. Our school held the 2014 Carseland Winter Olympics on February 18. Students represented different Countries and competed in many sporting events. Thank you to our parent volunteers and staff for running stations. During a few days this month the students and staff worked together in filming and creating a lip sync video to the song I can Do Anything. Please take the time to view this video if you have not done so already. It showcases some of the great things happening at our school. You can view this video by clicking on this link http://vimeo.com/87780884 .Our annual ski trip has been postponed due to extreme cold weather at Nakiska. It has been moved from February 28 to March 24. Carseland School started our Destination Imagination groups this week. Our students choose an area of interest and work together in a group to complete a challenge. These challenges involve teams to collaborate, communicate effectively, be creative and think critically. Our students will showcase these projects after the 10 week working period. Our virtue for this month is respect. Carseland School is accepting kindergarten and new student registration for next school year. Have great month everyone!
Next month we will be trying a video newsletter with some students.
