Learning about the Coast Salish people

Salish village
In class we are learning about how the Coast Salish people lived. We are studying housing, food and transportation. Later we will study trading between villages.
Here is an amazing website to see what a village was like:             SFU On-line Museum

    You can travel through the village, go into the houses, and walk into the forest to learn about traditional ways of doing things.  It is worth a visit!

Concerts – Dec. 17th!

choir clipartLater this month, we will be playing recorder  in our school’s Christmas concerts. Performances will be Thursday, Dec. 17th  at 1:30 pm and 6:30 pm. At this time, it looks like our class will be performing first.  Please come!

We are asking students to wear clothes for performing on stage; for example, a shirt that buttons up the front, and trousers or a skirt. We are asking students to not wear T-shirts with writing across the front, and no shorts or sweatpants, please.  Jeans would be fine. Students do not need to wear any specific colours.

Donations to the food bank are welcomed.

We hope to see you there!
