Field TripOn May 5th the grade 3, 4 and 5s attended our annual field trip. This year the trip was to Scandia Golf and Games in Kelowna. How did this fit with our theme "X Marks the Spot! The Search for Treasure."? Well, for their projects this year many of the students noticed that a large percentage of games focus on finding a treasure.
At Scandia, students played games, had a pizza lunch and played mini-golf. It was an enjoyable day! Thank you to all of the parent chaperones who volunteered their time; it was much appreciated! Below are some photos from the trip (link).
The week after the field trip it was Open House week for the grade 1 - 3 classes. Parents were invited to drop in and see what we've been up to. Students showed parents their treasure slide shows and we did some geocaching. Then it was back inside for students to share their treasure maps, as well as the directions and stories behind the maps. A big thank you to all of the parents who were able to visit us!

Last week was our last week of classes. The grade 4s and 5s got to do some geocaching (finding the caches their peers hid a few weeks before) and we had a little party. For the grade 5 students it was their last gifted class ever as the program only goes to grade 5. We had a special activity to mark the occasion. As you can see from the photos, things got a little mustache-y.
