a few photos from our Dance performances, Planet in Focus Film Festival, looking at Canada 150, Harris Burdick stories, rain and the Holland Marsh

Dance and Movement:

Once I speak with the group, I will see if they are cool with the using some of the video clips from the performances a couple of weeks ago to upload here.  In the meantime, here are some fun shots.  The great group shot was taken by Ms. Waxer.

I was very proud of all of you who pushed yourself to be creative and move out of your comfort zone!

Planet in Focus:

The most recent Planet in Focus Film Festival happened a couple of weeks ago.  As of today, the list of films have not bee updated, but I sent an email to ask when this might happen.  Here is a photo from the gala night.

Canada 150:  A cause for celebration and reflection

We will take a look at an article from What in the World and then watch a couple of videos looking at some different perspectives on our upcoming celebration.

As a point of reference, I am very proud of my nation, but there are parts of our history we need to be aware of and think about so we may treat one another differently.

Sharing some Harris Burdick stories:

It was a lot of fun sharing some of the narratives created by the students.

Each author had a different take on the images and brought a certain level of excitement to the piece of writing.

So much rain!!!

Does it feel as though it will never stop raining?
Well, the heavy downpours can cause a lot of damage to crops.  With the ground so saturated, this is what happened at the Holland Marsh, which is about 50 km north of the city https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Holland+Marsh,+Bradford+West+Gwillimbury,+Ontario/@44.1087934,-79.7074707,11z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x882adae4f9bee9a5:0xd4929325bc73c40b!8m2!3d44.0637601!4d-79.5715822
