Today, the grade sixes were fortunate enough to visit with Peter Raspberry at the Blair Outdoor Ed Centre to learn about biodiversity. After a short visit in the classroom (see another post for that) we left the centre to try out snowshoes on the recent snowfall. This was a first experience for many of the students. Check out the gallery below and a few of the short videos that Mrs. Losey took of the "Snowshoe Races".
Have you even been snowshoeing before? If so, do you have any tips or tricks to share with others? What was your favourite snowshoeing memory? What part of the videos below was your favourite?
Be sure to leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
I returned early from my prep during dance class one day to catch the first run through of the boys dance performance. They had done such a wonderful job that their dance teacher asked them to do it again so that we could record it... this is the recording from that day!
While not quite as perfect as the first time through (got cut short a bit), they did a fantastic job creating their own choreography and performing in front of the class! Way to go, boys!
Wow! A3 and Pioneer Park have had a really busy start to 2016...
Early this month we said a sad farewell to Mrs. Ogilvie, who has been a tremendous addition to Pioneer Park P.S. from September to February... In the words of one of our grade 6 students, she is "the world's best principal". High praise indeed!
At the same time, we are equally excited to welcome our new principal, Ms.Tait.
Pioneer Park celebrated in typical fashion with a an assembly earlier this week to officially welcome Ms. Tait to Pioneer Park, as well as accept a generous donation from the Kitchener Pioneer Lions Club for the Panther Hockey Program. Check out some of the photos as we said goodbye to Mrs. Ogilvie and welcomed Ms. Tait.
