Grade 6 Farewell
You're off to Great Places
Today is your day,
Your Mountain is waiting
So.....Get on your way!
The JJN Market
This year, we have been focusing on Project Based Learning (PBL) to facilitate student engagement and deep learning. As part of their last PBL project, our grade six students planned their very own version of the St. Albert Farmer's Market! Students were involved in researching possible market booth ideas, interviewing a St. Albert Farmer's Market past vendor, preparing a product with great customer service and solving problems. The market was a huge success and the students were thrilled to have members of the St. Albert Chamber of Commerce walk through. $1320.00 was raised for Catholic Social Services.

Track & Field 2018
Our annual grade 4-6 track and field day was another success. Our students competed with respect and great camaraderie. It was wonderful to see them cheer each other on, encouraging each student to do their best!
Break a Rule Day!
Our "Break a Rule Day" was a tremendous success! This event generated an amazing amount of school spirit and raised funds for Catholic Social Services. Throughout the day, we could feel the excitement in the air and observed students happily wearing crazy hats and pyjamas, chewing gum in class and even working in tents. Some students even planned and taught a lesson in class. Thank you for supporting this incredible service project - $2388.70 was raised for Catholic Social Services. Check out our gallery for some fun pictures.
Grade 5 Reading Buddies
Weekly, some of our grade 5 students volunteer to read with our grade 1 & 2 students. They really enjoy the opportunity to share their love of reading and to help build strong lifelong readers in the younger students.
Our grade 5 students are loving the chance to learn about and play the acoustic guitar. It is amazing how quickly they are picking up the chords and creating beautiful harmonies.
