Who doesn’t love some science experiments?? In Ms. L’s class they are making edible slime with starbursts, and also digging for gemstones. You never know what kind of surprise you will get, but the students enjoyed using some of their strength to break apart rocks and find the beautiful Geodes waiting inside.

“Trick or Treat, give me something good to eat”- The student’s at NL Primary had much excitement on our recent Halloween event.

All and all I can say that both staff and students enjoyed this spooky event. [...]
Thankfully our students didn’t get lost forever in the corn maze at Scott’s Orchard. They had a great time using those detective skills to find their way home though.

Exciting news…we met some DINOSAURS! The first fun Friday field trip this year a few of our blue students got to go back in time and experience some life size dinosaurs at Nature’s Art Dinosaur Place. What a sight to see, they went hunting for dinosaurs all through the hiking trails and almost got lost in a MAZEasaurus, but were able to escape and left no one behind. They were most excited to climb atop the T-Rex tower so they could scope out the next adventure that awaited them! Learn more about our school today. [...]
Over the summer we moved some things around and made some adjustments which created three new (voluntary time-out) VTO rooms. We have the galaxy room which kids use as a “chill zone” and a place to lay down or relax in a bean bag chair, it also offers body socks which some kids use as “cocoons” to help calm their bodies down. We have the movement room which is a place to get out all your energy out and “workout.” We have a trampoline, yoga balls, mini workouts, weights and jump ropes. Some kids just have endless energy they don’t [...]
