- Samuel brought a remote controlled car, Bailey told us about moving and how he will miss us and Brynn shared her harmonica.
- Team Awesome is putting on a (very short cute) play for parents and other classes on Tuesday, June 9 at 11:30. Don't forget to send a costume.
- On Wednesday morning, June 10, the City of Kamloops will be giving us an Ecosmart presentation. Mrs. Unsworth will be in our class for the afternoon.
- Innovation Day is on Thursday, June 11. Come check it out in the afternoon. More info to follow.
- Friday, June 12 there is a Science World presentation in the morning and Fresh Air Friday in the afternoon. Due to the height of the river, we will be staying on school grounds but will probably still come home damp and sandy (we have a surprise!).
- The Bright Red Book Bus will be at BEST on Wednesdays over the summer. Come borrow some books.
- Keep up to date with the BEST newsletter.
- Thank you to all the parents who came and helped us on our trip to the airport. We couldn't do it without you! Looking forward to seeing you at Isobelle Lake June 18.
- We had a great time at Cultural Day, although we did not get to participate in all the stations. Thank you Mr. Bowser for all your hard work!
- We released our butterflies this afternoon and wouldn't you know it? The batteries died in my camera so I only got 2 photos. :-(
I witnessed the sweetest exchange in our classroom yesterday. Someone's popcorn went missing, resulting in copious amounts of tears and sobbing. Another student, who had two bags, graciously and without hesitation gave one to the other student. Both were smiling- the first because he had some popcorn, the second because he had made his friend happy. We talk often in class about working together as a team and how if one of us loses, we all lose but if we work together we can all win. Life is not a competition. He who has more does not win. Life is a collaboration and the world recognizes and rewards those that can work as a team. Team Awesome certainly has a great start understanding the benefits of thinking beyond themselves.
