The Arts

A few years ago we created a number of multimedia presentations! Our core French teacher, M. Gagnon, helped students create a display of plasticene Aliens. The staff created an Art Show. We wrote the melody after we wrote the words. We watched the growth of our flowers, too. We created an SK Reading buddies guide(I created a pdf file of the information.) Student created some PowerPoint projects on Superheroes.

In 2001, students wrote letters of appreciation to our Peacekeepers serving overseas. CO1 Dennis Irwin, our penpal sent us photos of his experiences. I created an iMovie. Students wrote to him and he wrote them back.

Charlie helped us create some music dedicated to our Peacekeepers. We wrote some songs. Did a lot of singing, too!
