Everyone was very happy to be back at school on Tuesday after having extra days off for teacher work day and Martin Luther King Day. Our focus this week was on learning about peacemakers that included both Martin Luther King Jr. and Maria Montessori. Everyone has made good use of our peace table to resolve their disagreements and conflicts.
There was a lot of excitement on the playground when everyone discovered yet another new piece of playground equipment: a large jungle gym! Our parent volunteers have done an awesome job adding to all of the play ares and spreading new mulch (in frigid temperatures!).
We have begun our exploration of Chinese land, culture, and the celebration of Chinese New Year. This unit of study in Primary 3 has been a favorite for many years!
