Year End Celebration | Art Show

Yesterday evening SBS parents and teachers come together to enjoy Art, Appreciation, Wine & Cheese, and great conversation. It is so important to say our thank yous to the many parents for their contribution to school life each year. You all make such a big difference for our students, and for us.

The annual Student Art Show highlights one piece of art from each student in the school. Other students come to the show, and make comments on their peers' work, adding another level of meaning to the Art Show.

Parents view the wonderful display in our Arts Studio, as they enjoy themselves for a social evening to celebrate the end of another great SBS year.

Earth Day

The SBS EcoTeam includes everyone in the school community. In preparation for Earth Day students gathered in their lunch hour to create inspirational posters to raise awareness of the many things we can do to minimize our impact on our world, and celebrate this wonderful planet that is our home.

The Earth Day Challenge this year was to 'get outside and play', and in honour of Earth Day, SBS scheduled an additional recess for all students. Other EcoAction team activities included spring planting, a lunch 'n learn, collected batteries, and a collection of used markers for recycling.

Poem in Your Pocket Day

April is Poetry Month, and at SBS we celebrate with a special 'Poem in Your Pocket Day'. Poems were shared in assembly, beginning with our kindergarten classes performing a poem they had written in class.

Students in each grade read out favourite poems, and every student and teacher in the school carries a poem to share throughout the day. The GR 3 class explores poetry in their 'Express Yourself' unit it April, and ends the unit with a 'Poetry Slam' performance for their parents.

Poetry comes alive at SBS every April!

GR 6 goes to Brock Youth University

Finishing off the year with the excursion to science camp is a fabulous experience for our GR 6 students.

The class spent three days exploring the Brock University campus, spending time learning in labs, and finishing with a wonderful dance on this unique and fun grad trip. Our goal is to offer the class a fun ending to their time together, while providing a meaningful glimpse into what they are working towards as they go through school.

For our Grads the trip also leads into Graduation, our annual send-off of our senior students as they head out into the world of middle school. We are proud of all they have achieved, and we know they are ready to move on. We are thrilled to send them off, but also more than a little sad to see them go. There is something both sweet and wistful about the end of another school year.

Annual Musical

Beauty and the Beast was a hit, and played to a sold out audience both nights. From GR 1 to GR 6 all our students performed with enthusiasm, using their talent and hard work to create a magical theatre experience for their families.

Our thanks to all the volunteers who helped make the show a success for our students.

Author visit JK - GR 2

Author visits here at school enrich children's understanding of literature, how books come to be, and the process of writing and creating a book. We are so fortunate that our Sunnybrook Parent Association sponsors author visits each year.

Nasreem Hrab gave a lively presentation, including a creative activity for our younger students. Taking home a book of their own signed by the author was the perfect ending to a wonderful morning.

Author visit GR 3 - 6

Graphic novelist Brian MacLachlan visited to share his thoughts and experience on writing books for young readers.  His art and ideas about drawing and creating stories in the graphic novel genre were an inspiration to our students. They also really enjoyed the book signing, and taking their new books home.

Rotations

The annual musical is a highlight of the school year at SBS and we are presenting Beauty and the Beast in May. Our musical is a community effort, with parents helping our teachers and students at all stages of the process. Preparations always begin with Rotations, when students move from activity to activity in the school, making props and sets, learning their choreography, practicing lines, making programs and more. We began with the first of 3 rotations on May 1st. After rotations rehearsals begin as we approach Opening Night. We are so excited to see another show come together!
