We have been keeping up with the Swans that have flown in and now parted from Swan Haven at Marsh Lake. We are busy creating large swans to decorate our halls. Artist Helen O'Connor came to help us build these big beautiful birds!
We sang and danced at Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre last week. The teachers across the Yukon took part in a Celebration of Learning from their learning network projects, and we got to be the opening act! One group danced from our Aladdin play -Friend Like Me, and the Singing club sang El Ciodo de Ferro Veccio! What and hour to sing for our Yukon teachers!
We've worked so hard on these banners, look at how beautiful they are, posted downtown on Main Street! Congrats guys!
What an awesome show we had on Wednesday March 8th, 2023! With a matinee and an evening performance, we felt the magic of Aladdin's lamp throughout the school. Check out the recording on the Shows, Performance, Presentations Page. Congrats Cast and Crew!
I can't believe it's almost the middle of February. Where does the time go. You know what they say, "when you're having fun..."
We have finished our January Foods Unit, singing food songs, making food movies, creating food sculptures. Maybe we should have performed Oliver Twist's Food Glorious Food!
September (and August) has been a busy back to school month, but we are getting into the swing of things. We have had Artist Nicole Bauberger making Cardboard Monsters with us again, working on new Xylophone arrangements, printing projects like crazy on the Laser Cutter, and making honour art to show our respect to Residential School survivors.
Welcome Back to School! 2022-23 School Year is here
We are on week 3 and having a blast. Ms. Bartle (that's me) is back for another year and so looking forward to sharing creativity and fun with you in Drama, Dance, Visual Arts, and Music.
GRADE 4s, and 4/5s have been working on Assemblage Art pieces. Look how colourful and pleasing they are!
January has been a very interesting month, what with the Covid situation, the wild fluctuating temperatures, and the hustle and bustle of back to class! This month we have had some serious fun in the Arts Ed room, getting immersed in West African Arts and Culture.
We've been playing song games with rocks and sticks, keeping the beat on Marimbas and Djembes, dancing and singing our hearts out, stamping and weaving like Adinkra and Kente Cloth, and learning all about Anansi the Spider and his lazy, tricky ways.
This week, Primary classes got an introduction to drawing and painting digitally. It sure doesn't feel the same as holding a paintbrush, but we are able to create some amazing effects in our art!
