Here is what we did today.
Math: Today we started talking about perimeter. We learned that perimeter is the outside of an area. We can calculate it in two ways: Counting the lines on a grid or by adding up all of the sides. We first started off by counting the lines. We have to make sure that we are being careful with the counting as some of us were missing some of the lines. Next we went on to finding the perimeter using adding. We are getting in the habit of writing our information together and in a formula structure as it is helpful for the future and for understanding the their thinking process. Here is what we did.
Career Day Assembly: We watched some presentations on different careers. Sanjana's mom was there presenting on computer programming!
Gym: Please see Mr. B's blog for more information.
UOI: We watched a Bill Nye the Science Guy video on forces! We completed a worksheet while we watched the video. We did a small quiz to test their knowledge afterwards.
French: Please see Mme. Stella's blog for more information.
Have a good night!

As you may be aware, there was a tragic accident that occurred in Saskatchewan on Friday evening. The Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team was involved in an accident while travelling by bus to one of their playoff games, claiming the lives of 15 people and injuring many others. Around the country and world, organizations have shown their support to these victims, their families, and the Humboldt community. Here at St. Jude’s Academy, we strive to have students apply the learner profile attributes and attitudes not only through their studies at school, but in their community. St. Jude’s would like to show our support for the victims and their families by sending our students to school on Thursday, April 12th, wearing their favourite sports jersey to honour the Humboldt Broncos. The school will be holding a short assembly and a moment of silence on Thursday morning for Grades 3-12 to honour these players, coaches, and families. We are asking parents from JK – Grade 2 to have a home conversation with their child in regards to why their child will be wearing a jersey to school on Thursday.
Thank you for your support and cooperation in this matter,
