Vive le Carnaval!

Our winter Carnaval was a total success!!  I am so proud of our grade 7 and 8 French immersion kids who ran stations and brought their "families" of kids around to experience some French-Canadian winter fun!  I am also grateful to all of the volunteers and staff who pitched in to make this day a success.  I know the elementary kids had a great day and that the other junior high kids loved coming to try the special treats. 

A big shout out to Kerri Bauer from Crêpe and Shake Cafe for, once again, providing a wonderful treat of crêpes with maple syrup for the entire school!  Amazing!

This year we took on making out own cabane à sucre, Sugar Shack, with "tire sur la neige" (maple taffy in the snow).  It was delicious and with all of the helping hands we were able to provide a special treat for the entire school.  Now that we know how to do it ourselves it will be a great tradition for years to come.

Bonhomme also made an appearance!

What a special day!
