During the month of June, students learn the value of hard work!
We have three piles of mulch to spread around our tree trunks, in the Woodland Garden,
Kindergarten Play Area and Outdoor Classroom.
Thanks everyone for all your hard work!
Today, students started to plant their milkweed plants, which have been growing since Earth Day, April 2017. We planted in our front garden. We hope students will enjoy seeing milkweed so that they can learn about the Monarch butterfly’s natural habitat and then begin to conserve this plant in nature.
Thank you to LSF for giving us a grant to continue this project. We will soon begin to study the biodiversity on the Cataract Trail using nets, critter boxes, magnifying glasses, binoculars, and identification charts, books and guides for birds, plants, trees and insects. We are going to have fun!!! and learn a lot, too.
We’ve been collecting plastic bags at our school,Victoria Terrace, for a challenge for students across Canada and we will be bringing them into Walmart this week to be recycled. We have been collecting them and putting them in groups of 100 and we have collected over 1000 bags. Its a great way to get plastic bags from going into the landfills.
