Another beautiful day today at Cedar Grove. Since I have been here (not that I'm taking any credit for this :) we have had less than 10 minutes of rain in a recess or lunch break. That's not to say we shouldn't be prepared. The school does have a practice of having the children stay indoors on rainy days, unless they are properly prepared to go outdoors. That means boots, jackets, maybe rain pants, whatever seems to make sense. This is to try and ensure what they wear indoors during class time is dry.
In one of the afternoon classes we were joined by the District Superintendent who spent some time in one of the other classes.
The current plan is to have students come to the school dressed for the day (minus any weapon related props). I've heard that some of the teachers will also get into the act.
And then on November 1st, some of our grade 6 and 7s will head up to Ted Dixon Park for the annual Sugar Bowl, a fun soccer activity run to help burn off some energy.
I know some of you have iPads at home and a Twitter contact of mine from another school district has put together a great resource of apps. that you might like to review. Some are free and others a small cost. I can't seem to put my hand on the link right at this moment, but I will share it later.
