Harvest Dinner!

Room 115 is in the process of preparing its annual Harvest Dinner.

We have been learning about local, seasonal and sustainable farming, in geography class. We have also been learning about micro and macro nutrients and how to plan for healthy nutrition, in health class. We have done some mathematical data collection, organization and display around the class's favourite healthy food choices.  As part of our learning, we will be participating in a hands-on experience where we prepare and enjoy a harvest dinner together.

Thank you to the families for contributing an item toward this dinner!

Awesome 8s Generated Happenings at Bayview

Equity and Inclusion
It’s Socktober!

Throughout the month of October, Bayview will be collecting socks to help keep our
homeless population warm over the coming winter months. If you are interested in
participating, please have your child drop off a pair of new, warm socks into the Socktober
box , located in the front hall.

Eco Schools
The Eco Bears are Back to Protect Our Cubs!
Winter Clothing and Halloween Eco Swaps

As a way to limit the impact on our landfill sites, Bayview will again be hosting a Winter
Clothing Swap. In addition, we will be adding a Halloween Costume Swap! Thanks to
Mrs. Nicoll for the idea for this great new addition to our swaps!
How Does It Work?
Simply bring or send in any of your child’s outgrown, gently used winter wear (coats,
hats, scarves andmittens or gloves) or any Halloween costumes that your may be
finished with.You can place them in the designated area in the library. Then help
yourself to anything your children or your family’s or friends’ children can use. Save
our environment and save some $$$. It’s a win, win!

October is Here!

It's already October and the Grade 8s are full into some awesome activities. You can stay informed about some of the big initiatives that are happening at Bayview, with the Grade 8s leading them by following the "Ongoing Initiatives" list, on the right hand side of the screen.

It was great to meet and visit with so many families at Bayview's Open House and Barbecue. If you weren't able to make it in, I look forward to connecting with you in the future.

I do not yet have anything new to report on regarding the Ottawa trip but will send you information as soon as it's available.

Welcome to the 2018 / 2019 school year! 

I hope you will find this blog useful for accessing information important to the Grade 8 class in Ms. Young's room. Here, you may find upcoming events, homework assignments, student communication etc.

The grade 8s have had a great start to the school year and we are looking forward to a very positive year. A big thank you to all families for getting our information and permission forms back so quickly! 

You can expect to be receiving information on the Grade 8 trip to Ottawa within the next few weeks. If you are planning for your child not to attend, please let the school know as soon as possible, as the numbers will effect our planning and potentially costs.

Graduation dates will be provided to you as soon as possible.

Looking forward to meeting some of you during our Meet the Teacher and Barbecue evening on Wednesday, September 26th.

If you need to contact Ms. Young directly, the email is . Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
