Blues in the school day three!

What a great visit today from Peter and Shawn, or should we call them Dr. Shawn and Marshall Amps? Together we wrote a great song called Elementary Blues.

Our first few days of Blues in the School

So we have been lucky enough to have some great artists come to our school and share some of their great stories and music with us.

Below you will see some pictures from Monday's visit from Rick Fines and Tuesday's visit from the Celtic Rathskallions.

Downhill Ski Night

Yesterday at Camp Fortune we had an awesome night of skiing. The weather was calm, the moon was bright and the skis were flying! Thanks to all those parents volunteers who joined us.
Hopefully we'll get out again.
