In ELA right now we are writing Halloween stories – both for marks and as a part of a writing contest sponsored by the SCC.
Our topic is: Write a spooky story to tell around the campfire. Remember, you want to build suspense using onomatopoeia and alliteration. Don’t forget to have a big finale to frighten everyone who is listening.
All stories will be submitted to the SCC for judging. The top story from each grade will receive a prize!
Stories are due on Monday, October 23rd and must be typed and printed.
Grade 9 and 10s have an assignment due today. Students were to write a one (or more) paragraph expository response to Indigenous proverbs. Students were to choose one specific proverb and relate it to their own life.
Enjoy the long weekend!
Elementary students should have taken home information last week about assigned meeting times, while parents of students in grades 7-12 can call the office to schedule meetings for Parent-Teacher Interviews! Our first one is this Thursday, see you then!
On Wednesday, Sept 27 the SRC has planned a pajama day! So wear your comfiest pajamas to school that day! And we have ANOTHER Spirit day on Friday, with the theme being sporting outfits. There will be activities in the gym at noon for students as well! Friday is also our Terry Fox Walk in the afternoon, so students should be prepared to go for a walk outside.
In ELA 9/10 we are currently in the midst of our first unit focusing on Folktales. We’ve read a bunch of different folk and fairy tales, and have worked on analyzing the story components. On Tuesday, Sept 26 we have a 1-2 page essay due. In this essay students should compare and contrast two tricksters that we read about in class last week: Wisakedjak and the Raven.
I’m looking forward to meeting all of my new students later today! We are starting the morning off with a whole school assembly, and hopefully everyone enjoys the activities that the SRC has organized for us!
