At Birchmount Stadium, there was a qualifier meet in Track and Field. It was very wet and cold, but we had some great performances and several athletes who will move on to the South Conference Championships next month. I have some photos of some of our class members at the meet, but I will need time to compile them and add them to the blog. In the meantime, there were some nice messages, on the board, before we left and when we came back.
Hot Docs film: Fed Up!
The HotDocs for Schools film initiative is an excellent opportunity to explore the experiences of others and engage in some rich classroom discussions. On Wednesday, we completed watching this film and will use it as a discussion piece for a Community Circle on Monday.
To assist with this, here are a couple of trailers, related to the documentary.

Spring Fling raffle tickets handed out!
After being out for 2 days last week, I am looking forward to settling back into a routine of 5 full days of teaching. Our preparations for EQAO will continue, along with pulling together different components of the school program for this year. It is so hard to believe that the school year is almost done!
