We had a great first day of Grade 4! We started off with gym with Mr. Beresford and then off to French with Mme. Carol. Please have students come to school in their full uniforms and they will change into their gym before gym class. Gym uniforms will be kept at school!

Then we played some get to know you games, such as a scavenger hunt and All About Me sheet. We also got our supplies organized, went on a school tour, and went over some rules. We also created the front page for our IB Portfolio Binders.

We ended the day with a visit from Mr. Oliver for music.
