Champions, Mathletes, Eyeball Dissections and a Long Weekend!

What an amazing week at SMS!  Congratulations to our Grade 8 Girls who are the North Okanagan Track & Field Champions!  They are pictured here with the SMS and SAS team.

SMS was filled with “Mathletes” from many district schools participating in the Math Olympics today.  Thanks to Val Edgell, who heads up the district numeracy committee, Heather Lawless, SAS Math teacher and her high school students, and the many teachers and parents who made the day possible for so many grade 6-8 students!

Our grade 8 science classes have been busy dissecting cow eyeballs this week.  A lesson many of them will never forget!  Thanks to Mrs. Lawson and M Muise for making learning so engaging!

After such a busy week, our students will be ready for a long weekend!  Teachers will be working on professional development on Friday, but students are not in session.  Enjoy the day off and Victoria Day on Monday as well.  We look forward to seeing everyone back safely at school on Tuesday for a strong finish to the school year.
