It was another busy week at Carson Grove! The biggest highlight for many grades 1 to 5 students was the opening of the play structure. Students worked very hard during their physical education classes to learn the rules for safe play on the structure and earn “licences”. The good decision-making continued at recess. Another awesome thing at Carson Grove is the PALS recess leadership program. Some student leaders from Mr. Thomas and Mr. Clarke’s classes have been training to run recess activities for the primary classes at recess. Every Tuesday and Thursday, a different primary class can participate.

Now that spring weather has arrived, proper clothing (including splash pants, rubber boots, and light coats) is really important. Dressing in layers and sending students to school with some extra clothes/socks (if your child is the adventurous type when it comes to puddles and mud) are keys to students feeling comfortable in and out of school. On very sunny, warm days, hats, sunglasses, and a layer of sunscreen (ideally applied at home, for now) are also good ideas. May 16th SAVE the DATE!
