On March 22 (any time between 5 pm and 7 pm), Southwood School is hosting its first student learning expo. This event will be replacing the previous spring parent teacher conferences. Students are enjoying the opportunity to design, construct, then re-construct, learn, and complete projects made in our classrooms and MakerSpace. Now it’s time to share the learning with you.
Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited.
Each grade level has been working on a bit of a theme for the event. They are as follows: Grade four students have been focusing on a cardboard challenge. Their designs and projects will be found in the gym. Many of their projects will centre on the creation of arcade games. Simply google “Caine’s Arcade” and see what inspired them.
Grade three students will be working on designing and creating “trinkets”. Students will be spread out throughout the school. Parents and friends will be given the opportunity to purchase the items made by our grade three students. All proceeds will be donated to a local charitable organization.
Kindergarten to grade two students have been designing and creating projects related to their grade specific curricular outcomes. Students will escort their parents to their classrooms to share their learning as they describe their project.
The event is intended to be a “come and go” event between the times of 5 pm and 7 pm. Listen to your child share their learning and then feel free to visit other areas of the school and observe the learning at every grade level. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office during school hours. We hope to see you there for this one of a kind event!!
