SHS Week Dec 10 - 16
Hello Parents/Guardians: It was a short week for the students but a very informative one for most as it was “Hour of Code” Week. Everyone tried out a coding activity and used fun and easy ways to begin to learn the basics of code. Last swimming for grades 4, 5 and 6 this week!
WEM Waterpark event is tomorrow! It’s going to be so much fun! If you didn’t get your tickets at the school, there will be some available at the door on Saturday, December 9th, thirty minutes before the doors open at 7:30 p.m.
Today, as you are aware, is a Professional Development Day in Sturgeon School Division – no classes for students. Collaboration topics within the Division include: Reggio Inspired Learning, Motoring into Speech, Comprehensive School Health, Using GOOGLE Classroom, Bring Your Own Device Implementation Practices, Examining Diversity in our School, Strategies for Working with the Competencies – busy day for staff.
Here’s is what is happening this coming week at Sturgeon Heights – it is going to be an active one!
