National Indigenous Peoples Day at Frontenac

​On June 21, students at Frontenac participated in a day of fun and learning.  Our celebration connected students' classroom learning from the year, and for many students their family experiences and culture, to a very important National Day. 

The students sang O'Canada in Ojibwee, some students participated in a smudge, and all students participated in an activity afternoon.  The students participated in traditional games including high kick and target practice games.  Students learned about the medicine wheel teachings and made bracelets to reflect their learning.  There was an outdoor reading station where students partnered and enjoyed reading books from a variety of Indigenous authors or about Indigenous cultures and stories. 

For snack station the students sampled student made baked bannock and saskatoon jelly.  We even had our very own DJ playing traditional and contemporary Indigenous music including some local musicians.

To end our day of celebration the staff and students participated in a Round Dance in the school field.  Staff had so much fun planning and creating this special day for our students and the students certainly shared many smiles, connections to their learning and culture.

A Kind Request From the Library Commons

Book Detective.png

We need your help! 

 

Our Library Learning Commons has undergone many fantastic changes this year, including developing a great reading collection.  Too great maybe because we have many missing books. 

 

Can you be a book detective and find out where they went? 

 

Find them! Return them! 

 

Your library thanks you.

Term 2 Progress Reports and Student-Led Conferences

Our second term is now complete!  Students have acquired new learning experiences throughout the term and have continued to develop their skills in a variety of areas. 

Throughout the term, teachers have used the assessment process to identify students' strengths, help inform instruction,  gauge student understanding, and to have students involved in self-assessment and goal setting processes. 

Teachers use a wide range of assessment strategies to allow students to demonstrate their learning in different ways.  Your child's Term 2 Progress Report, highlighting both their academic and social learning, will be sent home on Thursday, March 15th.

Student-led conference dates are set for the evenings of March 21st and 22nd where students will have the opportunity to showcase the important learning they have done.  Conference Manager, our online booking site for conference times, is officially open.  We encourage all of our Frontenac families to attend conferences.  Should you require any additional support for setting up conference times, please contact the office.  We look forward to connecting with families during conferences and feeling the shared energy and excitement as students have the chance to celebrate their learning accomplishments.

Phys. Ed. - Winter Selfie Challenge

winter selfie 4.png

Winter has set in and the temperature is starting to drop. We often notice at this time of the year fewer and fewer children playing outdoors due to the cold. We are Canadians, WE ARE WINNIPEGGERS…it's time we help our little ones learn that IT IS FUN to play in the snow...that the cold is no more a barrier to outdoor exploration than the extreme heat, humidity, and mosquitoes of our summers!

With the 2018 Winter Olympics set to begin, we are concentrating on taking the Physical Education program outdoors. Your children will learn what they need to be prepared for during the winter season. For instance, we have been discussing how to layer their clothing appropriately for the winter and the importance of being able to remove or add pieces to adjust their heating/cooling needs. Tools like this will help them to continue outdoor play for extended periods of time.

We would like your assistance over the next month to help teach your children different activities that we can do during the winter. A detailed list of suggestions will be sent home this week with our youngest and only students.  We encourage families to post the note up in your home and we CHALLENGE our Frontenac families to do at least 10 activities and to document them by taking a selfie. Please tweet or email your winter activity fun to the school and/or Mr. Nordheim, Mrs. Hildebrandt or Mr. Collier.
