Our Pi contest was arranged by our substitute teacher, Caprice Rosentreter. The challenge was to memorize as many digits of pi as possible. On pi day (Mar 14th) students used homeroom time to recite the digits in front of their class. The top student in each homeroom won points for their house – equivalent to the number of digits they were able to recite. Fox House (green) earned 937 points – and they didn’t even have Justin to help them – he’s in Rowling (orange) - which earned a total of 674. Gandhi (blue) was in third with 658, and Da Vinci (red) earned only 269 points. If you look at the totals, you realize what a large contribution Justin made for his house!
Elaine presented Justin with a Purdy’s Gift Card and later this year he will be presented with a lapel pin – acknowledging that he is house champion in a Math Contest.
Jordan Witzel visits Balmoral School as Part of Weather School
Meteorologist Jordan Witzel visited Grade 5 students at Balmoral School on Tuesday for Global Calgary Weather School.
We do have our next round of Parent Teacher Interviews coming up on March 22nd
(3:00pm – 8:00pm) and March 23rd (8:00am-12:00pm). The online booking system
https://balmoral.schoolsoft.com will open to parents at 6:00am on March 17th. We ask
that, due to the volume of potential interviews, please limit your interviews to one or two
teachers. We suggest you prioritize by selecting the classes in which your student requires
additional support. Interviews are 10 minutes in length. It is helpful if you prepare your
questions in advance. If you require additional time, please contact the teacher directly
for time outside of the interview schedule. Do give yourself time to go from one interview
to the next as the locations could differ with each teacher. If you are late, the teacher may
not be able to meet with you so as to stay on schedule with other parents. Parents who
require and interpreter or those for whom teachers would like to set up a group interview
will be contacted prior to March 17th.
