Our pitch-in is being sponsored by the city of Fort St. John so we will be participating like most of the other schools. We will be doing the pitch-in on Thursday, May 23rd from 10:50-11:30ish. If you are able to come and join us please let me know. We will not be doing the 20km along the highway this year but the whole area around our school, ditches, and arena area.
Bring gloves and wear layers of clothing, sunscreen, bug spray….
The students were able to see and participate in the skinning of a beaver with our ASSW. This was an optional activity as not all students wanted to join in. As you can tell, Coy enjoyed the experience and was an excellent helper.
Our grade 5/6 class was learning how to play indigenous hand games this morning. It looked like fun.

This workshop is for educators, parents or artists of various disciplines working with the very young to explore benefits and strategies for more dance in their curriculum. The workshop starts with a conversation and exchange on the topic of dance in the early years to assess the needs of the group and create a community of peers. We will explore Foolish Operations’ strategies for relationship-based dance exercises that respond to children’s attachment needs and respects the physical developmental stages of children in the early years. The workshop will close with self-care relaxing movement exercises. Julie Lebel graduated with a B.F.A. in Dance and is a choreographer specializing in community engaged arts and dance in the early years.
