SabreBeat — Sacred Heart Elementary
By Ashley Wareham

Sacred Heart students love their school.  No wonder with all of the activities going on.

Ms. Staples kindergarten classes were delighted to learn more about climate change from guest speaker Joanna King.

Ms. King read the book “Who’s in Charge of Climate Change?”. The students had an opportunity to talk about this very important issue and they played a special game.

Each student went home with a copy of the book to share with their family.

Ms. Grandy’s Grade 1 class continued writing “The Special of the Week” and Nathaniel Randell was excited to share his pictures.

Both Grade 1 classes started a retelling of Steven Kroll’s “The Biggest Valentine Ever.”  

They can’t wait to publish it.

Ms. Pardy’s Grade 4 class did some very artistic projects this week. They made radiating hearts which they displayed in the hall.

Each piece looks like a pebble fell in the water and expanded into the shape of a heart. It makes you happy to look at it.

They also made Monster Munchies valentine boxes. Munch, munch, munch.

Grade 5 students also had a science presentation from Joanna King on climate change. They learned how they all can make a difference. Grade 5s also began an art project making robots out of recycled materials.

This past weekend, both our boys and girls basketball teams played in the RNC Tournament.  Both teams played very well. The girls won the championship in a great game against Templeton.  The girls on the basketball team had a bake sale last Friday to raise money for their provincial tournament in Lewisporte during the Feb. 21 weekend. The entire school went skating on Monday for Healthy Living Day. Students had a lot of fun skating with their friends.

Some of the athletes in our school have been making us proud. Grade 6 student Emily Butt won fourth place in all of her runs helping her team win the Marble Cup last week.

Grade 2 student Kaleigh Allen and Grade 4 student Laura Taylor of the Silver Stars figure skating team both won bronze medals at the Atlantic Synchro competition last weekend in St. John’s.

What a week.
