Remembrance Day has special meaning for me and seems to be a day that Supportive Learning students can identify with as well. They seem to understand and respect the pain and loss that everyone goes through during a war. This year we learned about the significance of the poppy and why November 11th was chosen. Students created drawings, wrote a poem or personal essay and created a movie with our teacher-librarian, Mr. Wong. The movie was shown as part of our Remembrance Day service.
These posters were produced by students using software from www.purplemash.com.
Friday is Remembrance Day. There will be an assembly on Thursday for the students and parents to attend. We hope that you will spend a few minutes with your family talking about the many opportunities we have in Canada and the sacrifices that some people had to make. We will be learning about Remembrance Day in class this week. Please visit the Remembrance Day page.
