On Thursday, December 8th, Grade 4 students from Southwood paid a visit to Steinbach Credit Union to fill the lobby with seasonal singing. Mrs. Brown lead the students through some traditional carols, and some selections from the upcoming Christmas Concert. The students sounded spectacular, and were excited to be broadcast onto AM 1250 for the whole community to hear!
November was the month for our first Maker Challenge! With inspiration from “Rosie Revere: Engineer”, the students designed and built a paper helicopter! Captain Southwood made an appearance at our last assembly to test the top designs from each class in each grade. A trophy was awarded to the class from each grade with the best-floating helicopter! We’re excited about December’s “decoration” challenge!
On Friday, October 28th, Southwood students toured the school to show off their special Autumn costumes! There were many clever, creative, and amazing outfits worn by the students. As well, the staff at Southwood put on their best superhero costumes!
Southwood students brought in non-perishable food donations for our annual Drive Away Hunger campaign. The program was a great success with Southwood Students and Staff responsible for over 2800 lbs. of food to go to Manitoba’s needy.
On Thursday, September 29th, Southwood students set out on our annual Terry Fox Run. Here are some of the memories from a beautiful autumn day. Remember, donations can be brought to the office, and pledges can still be made online until October 7th. Click HERE to donate directly online.
