Who Are Our Heroes?

Hello, students of the seniors' class!

We are gearing up to visit Jackson Park with all of its war memorials and other monuments. This is a good time for us to share with others who our heroes are.

We will start with the story of Viola Desmond and how she came to be considered a Canadian hero. Then we will create our own tributes to the heroes in our lives.

You and the Police

See if your phone is Alert Ready here.

In May we will go to the Police Training Centre in Sandwich to see a mock rescue and enjoy our annual ESINC Day.

This video was made in London, but the same rules apply here in Windsor.

The Library

Two years ago, the seniors' class visited the library and were given a tour by the librarian.

After the tour, students went on a scavenger hunt and proved to me that they could use the self-check machine. Actually, they showed me that they could not use it and that we should have done more practice runs in class. Ha!

Our Field Trip to Windsor Sculpture Park

Hello, students of the seniors' class!

Next week, weather permitting, we will take a field trip to Windsor Sculpture Park. This open-air art museum started life as Odette Sculpture Park, named after the generous benefactors who established the collection with commissioned and purchased works of sculpture, Louis and Patricia Odette and the L and P Odette Foundation.

I have created a little book to help us prepare for our adventure.

To continue with our study of articles, let Jennifer teach you about articles with geographical names.
