Monday, May 23rd is Victoria Day. The school will be closed and there is no school for students.
We had an incredible group of hard-working families who came out on Saturday to support the Enviro-lab at Sam Livingston School. The amount of weeds that were pulled is staggering! Thank you so, so much to everyone who made it out and especially to those who organized the event. Check out www.ecolesamlivingstoncouncil.org for some pictures of the event!
There is still some compost remaining to be picked up at the school. Please feel free to stop by tomorrow (Friday May 20th) from 8am-1pm or next week sometime to claim your order. Thank you!
We will be welcoming our Calgary Police Service community liaison, Constable Gemma Baker, to the school on Tuesday, May 24th. She will be working with the grade 4 classes throughout the day on the importance of honesty, good friendships and on responsibility in the school and in the community.
All Kindergarten students will be attending an ALL DAY field trip to the zoo on Wednesday, May 25th. They will be exploring many various animal exhibits as they make observations and deepen their understanding of animal habitats.
Students in grades 1-4 will be walking to Nickle School on Wednesday, May 25th in the morning to experience one of two plays, either The Velveteen Rabit or Snow Queen. Thank you to Nickle School for inviting our students to participate in this rich learning experience!
The ME to WE club will be hosting a Skipathon on Wednesday, May 25th at 1:00 PM. We are asking for donations of $2 with the proceeds going to NSTEP. NSTEP is a Calgary Organization that goes into schools and teaches students about WHY they need to be active every day and eat more of the four food groups. This leads to behavioral lifestyle changes that will positively impact their whole health. Both physical activity and healthy eating (which positively impact mental well-being) are key elements to start the deep cultural shift for healthy habits for life for all children as they grow into adults.
$2 is the cost for the program to run for 1 student for one month. We are asking students to bring their own skipping ropes, hula-hoops or skip-its. NSTEP is part of the Birdies for Kids program which means that for every dollar we raise, the Birdies program will match it with 50 cents for the NSTEP program in Calgary.
WOW!! Wednesday, May 25th is a very busy day at Sam Livingston School! We are so appreciative of all of our staff, parents and volunteers who make the authentic, rich learning at Sam possible. MERCI BEAUCOUP!!!
