February 2018

We have been very busy since the beginning of January.

I am sure your child has come home and told you about our FinS (Fish in School) project. We are raising rainbow trout in our class as part of our "Animal Life Cycle" unit for Science. We received 65 rainbow trout eggs from Bow Habitat Station in Calgary on January 24th and will be releasing them in early June. We were able to participate in a webinar and learn a lot about our rainbow trout and their life cycle. The following is a link to our webinar:

            FinS Fish & Lifecycle of a Rainbow Trout

Please drop by the class and check out this exciting project. Your child would be happy to tell you about our rainbow trout.

We have also been hard at work with our PBL project: "Looking at Lethbridge". Please check your child's agenda for an important letter about what your child needs to bring to school to complete this building project.
