Today, the students learned about archaeology and the different skills that go into retrieving artifacts from long ago. The students brainstormed and created a concept map with the class with their ideas. It was really interesting for the students to see that the skills required for being a good archaeologist, translates into skills necessary for life in general. A little hard work, dedication, and patience, can get you far in life!

Each of the students have worked on their cardiovascular health and have been participating in moderate to vigorous physical activities on a daily basis since September. All students are expected to beat their times from their first Grouse Grind in term 1. As an additional incentive, any student who beats Mr. Hong will be given a prize. Mr. Hong is an old man, so most of the students should be able to beat him.

Dear students of div 4,
Thank you for your energy, enthusiasm, cooperation, and creativity toward your learning! From the first day that I met you (Sept. 27, 2012), I was impressed by your talents and skills in so many different areas. It has been wonderfully rewarding to see you continue to learn and grow in those areas and in new areas over the past 8 months.
Thank you (and Mr. Hong!) for such thoughtful and special farewell memories and gifts. It has been my honor to be your student teacher- I am so blessed to have had you as my first class! You will always be first class in my heart =)
Have a great rest of the year- finish strong- and enjoy your summer!
