Author Visit, Trip Forms, & Homework

Thanks to the support of School Council, we enjoyed a session with author Kenneth Oppel today. Mr Oppel gave us some insight into his writing process and the inspirations for some of his 32 published books. Students had an opportunity to ask questions of him and have books autographed. Teachers enjoyed the, “I told you” moment, when he reinforced the need for planning and revising!! 

We also updated our agendas with many upcoming events, one of which is a trip to McMaster’s Planetarium. Forms were sent home, and we’ll be looking for a volunteer with a Police Check. Thanks again to the support of School Council, transportation costs have been covered.

Homework: Students were given an outline to prepare 2 oral presentations. They will be responsible for booking a time slot, but both presentations should be done by the end of May.
