Lest we forget...

This morning all the students in our school gathered for a Remembrance Day assembly. The Grade One and Kindergarten Classes sang a song titled "Thank A Soldier". You may have heard your child singing it at home. They did a beautiful job, as did the other choirs.
This is one of our students with his Dad. Thank you very much to the Sargeant, who joined our Remembrance Day Assembly and spoke to everyone.  We appreciated having you as part of our service.
As part of our Social Studies curriculum, we have been learning about Remembrance Day. One of the books we read, What does PEACE feel like? by Vladimir Radunsky, inspired us to create our own list of what peace…. feels/smells/tastes/sounds/looks……like.
