What an amazing workshop the Grades 1-3 students had on Wednesday. A huge thank you to the Canadian Contemporary School of Art (CCSA) for bringing their treehouse building know-how to our students.

This afternoon, we discussed what “sink” and “float” mean. “If an object sinks, does that mean it is on top of the water or underneath the water?”, the children were asked. “Under!” The children said with enthusiasm. “If an object floats, does that mean it is…
