Grade 8 Arts Discovery Days – Canadian Identity

Our Grade 7 and 8 students will be travelling to Charlottetown on Wednesday, Nov. 28 to participate in the following event. It will be a full day activity with the bus departing as soon as possible after arrival that morning so please ensure everyone is here on time! They should also bring a bagged lunch and a water bottle.

Arts Discovery Days is a project of Confederation Centre of the Arts in partnership with the PEI Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture. On each day, 3 different classes of Grade 8 students visit the Confederation Centre of the Arts, where they will experience workshops in movement, drama, and visual arts. These “hands-on” sessions will be tied into the grade 8 Social Studies curriculum, focusing on the concept of Canadian Identity.

School Food Think Tank

ACC will be sending 20 students to this event tomorrow. For those attendees that ordered food through HotLunches for that day, the orders will be deleted and your account will be credited because they will be fed at this meeting. This is certainly an exciting project and we are happy to be one of 3 pilot school groups across PEI.

Kinkora Regional High will be hosting a School Food Think Tank on Tuesday, November 20th, from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Events will also be held at East Wiltshire Intermediate and Montague Regional High. These events are an opportunity for students to make recommendations on how to improve school food environments.

These schools are hosting events because they are prepared to participate in a school food pilot program beginning fall 2019. Details about this are still being finalized, but if you have questions or would like more information, please contact Morgan Palmer (Public Schools Branch) at mkpalmer@gov.pe.ca

Students from Somerset and Amherst Cove will be welcomed by Kinkora student leaders who are helping to facilitate the event. The event will include both individual feedback and group discussions about school food.

Students will be provided a lunch, free of charge, by the Kinkora Culinary class and The Handpie Company. This lunch will include options for those with dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-free, nut-free, etc.) Water will be provided to drink but students are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle.

These events are a partnership between the Public Schools Branch, the PEI Home and School Federation, and the PEI Heart and Stroke Foundation. Funded has been provided through a Wellness Grant (Department of Health and Wellness).

Remind

You are invited to join us at Remind.com to receive brief reminders and notices sent out by the school. You can opt in to receive messages through text, email,or their app. You can always opt out later if you change your mind. We intend to use it for short notices that may be sent home on a little slip of paper (which we suspect sometimes go unseen), late buses, early closures, etc. Follow this link (https://www.remind.com/join/69f2bbk) to sign up for our ACC School-Wide messages.
