STEAM Day 1 Recap...did the egg break?
STEAM Week Day 1 has wrapped up. Thank you teachers for the great workshops! Thank you students for joining in and having fun!
On Day 1, students learned about the science of maple syrup and then made their own maple syrup candy with Mrs. Tilt, all while doing an experiment! There may be a few pots to scrub clean now, but there was also a lot of yummy maple candy made. Check out the picture for some of the samples that were taken at different points of the experiment.
Do you feel like you need inspiration and motivation to leave the second pandemic winter behind you? We feel the same way! It's time to play. We've put together a list of games, puzzles, and other resources to leave the dreariness of winter behind and have some fun.
Did you get a chance to enjoy Spring Break and get outside? We're so happy about Spring being here and the warmer temperatures that we decided to make "Get Active" our theme for April. It's not only about the physical benefits - getting outside and moving your body also has mental benefits. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to get active; connect with us on Facebook to share.

January flew by and just like that the second month of 2021 is here. Our theme for February is Courage and Random Acts of Kindness, and as the pandemic continues its grip on British Columbia and the rest of the world, those things are more important than ever. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear about your own random acts of kindness; connect with us on Facebook to share.

We're into the second month of the new school year and are starting to settle into a new normal.

The new school year is here! As much as we enjoy summer, it’s always great to get back to a routine, and to learning. For the 2019/2020 school year, we thought it would be fun to introduce a theme, and we’re thrilled to share with you that the SCIDES 2019/2020 school theme will be learn & play.
We’re inspired by the Play is the Way® movement and want to explore how we can challenge, support, and engage our students to embrace new ways of learning by incorporating play and stretching their comfort zones a bit.
