Welcome to April and the joy of Easter, and new life in Christ!  We hope you enjoyed a wonderful Spring break!  Now is the time to bring out the shovels, turn over the soil and stretch our limbs outdoors!  Our themes this month include Poetry Month, Fairy Tales, Spring and Easter!

BC News re curriculum

As new funding changes in B.C. on how we use our curriculum funds, the learning commons is growing.  Pippa shares more about curriculum on Overdrive, and new e kits on the horizon  here.

Natalie shares about Poetry selections contained on the web, in the public domain and in Overdrive in this article!

Fairy-Tales are an important part of early childhood development as they encourage the imagination to soar!  They allow our students to develop a conscience for good and evil, whilst also enhancing the creative imagination.  Resources on Fairy-Tales are found in this article.

News from the Read-A-Thon!  Yes we have our winners!  Congratulations to all participants and winners!  To find out who won the grand prizes go to this blog post from Shandra.

Poetry month invites all aspiring poets to join in our creative writing challenge and register for our Poetry Competition on the Ning!  Students as young as grade 3 up to grade 12 may enter the contest this year and there will be prizes for the best writing for High School and Elementary.  We look forward to seeing all budding poets and writers enter this contest.  For more information please go to the Ning here.  If you are 13 and over and need an invite to the Ning please contact Pippa?  Or you may send entries to your teacher and they will share on the Ning on your behalf.
