The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is still accepting registrations from young Canadians to take part in its Junior Astronaut Virtual Camp this summer. There are very few registrations so far in Prince Edward Island so chances to win one of four sports for the province are very high! Youth interested in participating in the Junior Astronauts Camp need to take part in the Junior Astronaut recruitment by:
- Having a parent or guardian register online to create a profile before February 28, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. (PT).
- Participating in at least one activity in each of the three streams (science and technology, fitness and nutrition, and teamwork and communication). The activities were originally designed to be done as a team in schools, science centres or youth organizations. However, because of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the CSA is allowing participants to do them at home with siblings or close friends (please be sure to follow local public health measures!).
- Submitting a one- to two-minute video in which they explain why they would be a good Junior Astronaut candidate, as set out in the camp Terms and Conditions.
Grade 7’s will begin this week on Thursday leaving the school around 1:45 pm. There will be a brief information meeting in Mr. Cusack’s classroom on Wednesday morning during Period 1.
So this week we will transition from our Gr.8/9 group being on the ice to the Gr.7 group starting on Thursday. A huge thank you to the Gr.8 and 9 students for participating in excellent sessions. We had a large number on the ice but overall the sessions ran smoothly with a lot of movement.
Things to know for the Gr.7 group starting Thursday, Jan. 21st.
Ice time is 2:15-3:45. Students will be bussed from the school to the rink but will need to be picked up at 4:00 pm at the APM Centre.Gear will need to be dropped off at the rink in the morning after 7:40 am. Please wear a mask when you come in to drop gear off and check the board for the designated room to leave the gear in.
If there is ever inclement weather or chance of a cancellation for any reason we will let students know at the school and also send out an email to parents. Students are expected to check with teachers regarding work that will be missed in their absence and complete that work as directed by the teacher. We can only run this program with the support of the teachers and administration so a good work ethic in class as well as the rink is important to ensure that students can get to enjoy every ice session.
If you have any questions or concerns please let me know and we can do our best to answer them.
Wednesday, January 27th – Pizza being sold at lunch. Students will pre-order on the 25th & 26th through their homeroom teacher. The cost is $4.00 per slice and we ask that students bring correct change as we are unable to provide change from the office. Our pizza sales are helping cover the cost of student council activities and other things that used to get $ from the dances.
