Happy Easter Holidays! Thanks to all the parents who came out today and helped with our 3B Bikini Easter Party. What fun we had! Thanks also to CISPA for their wonderful staff appreciation spread on Wednesday. You are making my pledge not to eat sugar more than challenging!

A big shout out to our six 3B Bikinis, Andre, Lexy, Brayden, Tyler, Maddy and Tyler, who were part of the cast and crew of Seussical the Musical! Wow! The high level of commitment, dedication, creativity, teamwork and problem-solving needed was so impressive. We are all so proud of you!!! You all knocked our socks off!! It was also so wonderful how supportive all the other Bikinis were of their classmates. What a kind group of humans!

This week students learned how coal is transformed to produce electrical energy and are continuing to find out the pros and cons of different energy sources. They are in the process of deciding which form of energy they would like to research and become an expert in. We also kicked off our inquiry into motion geometry through the lens of transformation. Students are using the app Dotable to show reflection, rotations and translations. They are also applying these skills to solve coding challenges.

We hope you have a wonderful break!

General Reminders

Swimming: A reminder that swimming for the 3B Bikinis starts Monday, April 9th and runs until June 1st.

Classroom Blogs on the CDNIS App – launching in April
The new CDNIS mobile app will be officially launched after Spring Break. One of the items on the app are direct links to all Lower School blogs – Pre Reception to Grade 6 homeroom, Chinese, Learning Support, Library, LTT, PE, and Visual and Performing Arts. Hopefully, the direct links will allow parents quicker and easier access to the blogs. Any questions, or if you want to see the app/how your blog appears, please see Melanie in Communications.

Camp is just around the corner. It would be great if you could help your child allay fears by discussing what they are worried about, and to help with strategies that might overcome this. If they have not yet slept away from home, it might be a good idea to arrange a sleepover at a friend’s or at Grandma and Grandpa’s.

Camp Enrollment Form: If you have not yet completed APA’s digital enrolment form, please do so ASAP. It is a requirement for all participants in order to ensure the program meets any medical or dietary requirements.  So far only 34 people have completed the form.
