Fun Fair Cupcake Winners!

Our wonderful PAC put on an AMAZING Fun Fair last Friday, with lots of games, tasty food, cake walks and more!

There was a contest to see which class could bring in the most cakes  for the “Cake Walk” activity.

Can you believe it… WE WON!

Our prize was a fancy cupcake for each and every one of us in the class!  (Even the teachers!)



Thank you to our wonderful PAC!

Thank you to our fabulous Parent Bakers!

Hallowe’en Pumpkin Relays

Hallowe’en morning is always a happy time, going to different classrooms to try out some fun activities.  One of the favourite stations is set up by our PAC in the gym.  The parents and Mr. DV are all dressed up in costumes!  We get to run all kinds of crazy races, like rolling pumpkins and using tongs to pick up scary creatures (plastic!) and pop them in a bucket.

What a great way to burn off
a little of that Hallowe’en excitement!


Sports Day 2013


There’s no better way to describe our Sports Day this year!

After a soggy start (we took all the stations outside only to be rained on thoroughly!) our spirits were not dampened (HaHaHa) because we had an INDOOR Sports Day backup plan!

The excitement was high and the kids were pumped!  It was a great day for team spirit, but also for good sportsmanship and cooperation.  It was also very gratifying for Mrs. Boekhout to see so many Grade 8 helpers that came from Nestor!

Curling Action

This week we had an exciting time learning about the Olympic sport of CURLING from “Capital One Rocks and Rings Canada“.  It’s a great way to engage in physical activity.  It’s a non-contact social sport that you can play your whole life. We learned about rocks, rings, buttons, brooms, and more!  We played our “curling” in the gym, but we found out that real curling takes place on ice.  That ice isn’t smooth though, it’s pebbly!
