Casa 1 care of their environment

“When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.”
— Dr. Maria Montessori

Casa 2 math

These two ladies worked diligently to complete the 1000 chain! Well done!

Waterloo Casa’s Letters of Love

The students in Waterloo Casa took a short walk down to the mailbox at Rexall to mail their letters they’ve written to their Grandparents and Special Friends. We can’t wait to hear from them when they receive their messages!! #sealedwithakiss

Lower El 2’s mini-greenhouse!

How cool is this?! This “apartment -sized” mini greenhouse was gifted to Lower El 2 by the McLean family. The students will watch (closely, no doubt) as the seeds sprout into vegetable plants and herbs.

Lower El 3’s beautiful blue gift!

Lauren made this beautiful blue dress for her friend Charlotte with a bit of help from her Grandma. Amazing work, Lauren! Grandparents are the best!

Art class is a scream

We’re back in the art studio having fun with Edvard Munch’s painting, ‘The Scream.’ The backdrop was painted by a handful of talented Upper Elementary artists.
