2018 FUN FAIR – SAVE THE DATE – MAY 31, 2018
ETOBICOKE FIELD STUDIES CENTRE
Rooms 104 and 105 had perfect weather the day of the trip! The Etobicoke Field Centre provides students with an opportunity to get up and close with nature. The students went on a walk through the woods and they were even able to feed the birds. If your child attended the trip, ask them what they thought of the day and what part of the trip resonated with them!
SPLASH AND BOOTS
Our Kindergarten students made their way to a performance by “Splash and Boots”. They danced and sang right along with the performers. The cutest moment came when the performers came out onto the stage and the students realized that the were real people!
Mill Valley students had another fun and successful dance-a-thon! we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous support. The funds raised for this event go directly back to the students. Last year’s funds went to support our coding initiative. Through these funds we were able to purchase five Dash and Dots.
Dash and Dot are robots that can sense, act and think! Students use block coding on four different iPad apps to control their robots. The durable and child-friendly robots are a safe and easy way to encourage STEAM learning in the classroom.
STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
MILL VALLEY’S FIRST MOVIE NIGHT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!
Despite the cold weather on Friday, January 26th, the Mill Valley community came out to enjoy our first ever movie night at the school. More than 100 movie-goers came with blankets and pillows to help raise funds for our school. The School Council would like to thank all who attended and participated in planning the very successful event! A special thank you goes out to Pizza Pizza and Cineplex Odeon, Queensway for their very generous donations. All proceeds will go towards gym and sports equipment to help promote healthy active students.
Thank you all again for your support!
