December 12th Bring-A-Mug Hot Chocolate Social and Open House
We are planning on having a simple Christmas celebration open house where families come, bring their mugs to fill with hot chocolate, enjoy some baked goods from the bake sale, and spend quality time participating in some festive activities.
o Relax and enjoy musical selections at the Cookie Café. Students will present special poems, instrumental music and songs. Kindergarten students will kick off
the line up of talent. A program of presentation times will be published closer to the event.
o Visit the North Pole Bakery to decorate sugar cookies
o Visit the Reindeer Workshop to make reindeer candy cane crafts
o Make beautiful giant snowflakes in the Winter Wonderland Room

o Junior and intermediate students can take on the Great Christmas Escape
Challenge in one of our Escape Rooms! Schedule to be announced.
Many thanks to our School Advisory and Council and Martha Cullimore Staff for organizing this event!

Grade 7/8 Edwin Technology Pilot Project
We are delighted that our intermediate students will be embarking on an
exciting learning journey this school year with a new digital learning platform
called Edwin. This is a partnership between the District School Board of
Niagara and Nelson, an educational publisher.
Grade 7/8 students will receive a computer (Dell Education Chromebook
hybrid laptop/tablet) for their sole use during the school year. The computer,
which will travel often between school and home, provides access to quality
learning resources for Ontario’s 7/8 curriculum. In addition to their classroom
learning resources, students now have access to a wealth of curated digital
educational content. Through an app called Edwin, they can view, read, and
interact with this content. They will also use Edwin’s dashboard, which is
connected to Google’s G Suite for Education, to keep track of assignments,
extracurricular activities, and communications.
This is a pilot program. Students, and their teachers will use, evaluate, and help
improve the learning and teaching experience using Edwin.
