Writers speak to kids

In Divison 5 the students have been very busy writing and editing stories. Last week they came to the library to watch a video interview from NBC Learn with children’s author, Mo Willems. The students noticed they had some connections with his writing process, but there were also some surprises.

50 Nights of Reading


It is hard to believe but tonight we will reach 50 nights of reading!  Thank you to all the students and staff who are helping us reach our goal to “Read to the Moon!”.  Please hand in your completed 50 night forms to the library.  100 night forms will be available Wednesday.

BC Lions visit South Slope/BCSD!

Today we had a visit from the BC Lions!  At an assembly they spoke to us about how team work, determination and striving for success can help us reach our goals whatever they may be.  Thank you to Solomon Elimimian #56, Dante March #31 and Jovan Olafioye #63 for your inspirational message and for signing so many autographs!

Happy Halloween!

Last Wednesday South Slope/BCSD celebrated Halloween in fine style.  The primary students started off the day with a parade.  Later many classes had celebrations in their classrooms.  BCSD intermediate students organized games and activities for the younger students.  Divisions 1 and 2 had a dance in the gym.  It was an super spooky day!
