Please have a quick look if any of these Lost & Found items belong to your child:
Here’s a special message from our Grade 4/5 Teachers: Our grade 4 and 5 classes have been working hard to create a pod show for this term. Our theme is “belonging.” Many of us struggle to feel like we belong because of various insecurities and worries; sometimes others welcoming us into the group is enough to help us feel a part of things, but other times we are the ones who need to take the first step to help us belong. Through this pod show, we explore these concepts through acting and videography, dance, choir, music composition, and visual art. The performance will be made available to the Blacklock community on June 23. As with all of our live pod shows in the past, we are hoping our audience members will make a donation which will go towards our show costs, our arts budget, and building a roof for our outdoor classroom. Please sign in to School Cash Online to make this donation. We are so excited to share this show with you! – Angela Schmuland, Cheryl Hillier, and Jynelle Grigg
