Classroom Learning in Action

This month's spotlight:

Mr. Prescott's Class (Grade 1/2)


Mr. Prescott’s class has been busy working hard on writing stories this month. Each week they have created their own story and had the opportunity to share it with the class. They have been trying to spice up their writing by using ‘triple scoop words’ (i.e. interesting words) in order to make their story more captivating. In a few weeks they will turn one of their stories into a cartoon using a program called Toontastic.


Mr. Prescott’s class was also lucky to go on a few field trips over the last month. They went up the gondola to learn about forces and motion and had a blast skating at Brennan Park!





The next meeting will be Tuesday, February 15 at 6pm online.


Minutes from previous meetings are available under the PAC Tab
