November Event Recaps
Updated: Dec 11, 2019
Roots of Empathy
Roots of Empathy is a monthly program led by Ms. Ingalls. The program allows our Grade 3 students a chance to observe the growth of a baby and have discussions around their development and how they might be feeling and why. Baby Mia is the daughter of Ms. Kiley, Middle School Gym and Science teacher. The students like to discuss Baby Mia’s facial expressions and why she might be making certain noises and are enjoying watching her grow with each visit. Thank you to Ms. Kiley for allowing our students to watch baby Mia grow!
Remembrance Day Assembly, November 11, 2019
This November, our students gathered to remember all of the brave Canadians who fought for our country and our freedom. Our prep school students heard from Sgt. Chelsey Hutson while our middle and senior school students heard from well respected veteran and current parent Eric Anderson on their experiences in the Canadian Military. Before taking part in two minutes of silence in honour of those who lost their lives, our middle and senior school students also listened to moving performances by the middle school choir and senior school band.
Woozles Fundraiser, November 13, 2019
Each year, Woozles Bookstore give us an opportunity to host a school fundraiser at their store. We invite Grammar families to shop after-hours at Woozles, where 20% from all sales are donated back to Grammar. This year, our families raised over $300 to support the school. A Thank you to all of those who came out and supported the event, and a special thank you to current parent Lindsay Bates for helping to organize!
Halloween, October 31, 2019
Halloween is always a fun day at Grammar. This year, our students went all out with their costumes! The senior school students decorated their third-floor hallway as a haunted house and led special activities for the prep school students. Not to be outdone, the teachers also flexed their creativity and got dressed up. The highlight of the day was seeing the prep students’ reactions to their teacher’s costumes during the afternoon parade in the gym.
