FIELD TRIPS AND SPECIAL EVENTS
We hope that the children are able to experience field trips this 2021/22 school year in a safe, educational, and exciting way! Changes in programming may come without warning as Alberta Health Guidelines may be amended. Parents will be contacted of these changes should they arise.
During the 2020/2021 school year, we have had to cancel all field trips. Instead, we have been inviting different people to join our class via video chat! Our visitors either talk to our students about their job or lead us in a fun activity. Last year, our students have had the pleasure of welcoming visitors such as a yoga instructor, a dance teacher, and a firefighter.
During a normal school year, our special events coordinator has the important job of finding fun and educational events for our students. They also seek out opportunities to teach our kids to care about people and the world around them, and as a class, we adopt a class of students in need during the holiday season.
Our field trips and special events include: a trip to Ortona Gymnastics, yoga classes taught by a certified yoga instructor, a visit from Santa Claus, a trip to play SportBall, a classroom visit from a puppeteer, a visit to WEM Marine Life, and a visit from Zoo 2 U.
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list and that the executive board adds activities based on our student's interests and our curriculum.
