The children are having a blast skating! I’ve been impressed by how hard they are trying and by how uncomplaining they are about sore feet and falling down. Just look at these smiles.
Getting lots of physical exercise is so important for young children. It helps them to focus and to do better in all the academic things we do at school. These photos are from a recent game of sit tag that we played in the gym.
Presenting your work to the class is sooo much more exciting in the dark with flashlights used as spotlights.
The students all participated in Jump Rope for Heart today. This event is a fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The students’ goal was to raise at least $7000. If that number is reached, Mr. Silversides has promised that the students can use duct tape to tape him to the wall!
There was no fire, but a fire truck came to Westmount School and the students all had a look. Mrs. Cassidy was away when the truck came, so some of the students took their iPads outside to take photos. These images are posted with the permission of the photographers.

What does our heart sound like? This week we got to find out!
This week we checked our lunch boxes. We found some food that was not so good, some food that was better and some that was GREAT for our bodies. The picture above shows what the children found that they felt fell into the “great” category.
