HALT Team

SMECA's HALT team made smoothies to share with  classmates and staff for Mental Health Day

Let's Chalk About It

Grade 1-2 completed “Lets Chalk About It” mental health activities. They read a book about different emotions then filled a “Self Care Jar” with ideas they could draw from when feeling upset. Finally they created positive affirmation signs with chalk.

Grade 2/3 took their “Let’s Chalk About It” ideas to the great outdoors. They filled the school’s entrance with positive self talk messages for people to read as they come and go

Citizenship 9

Today the Citizenship 9 class tested their knowledge about the voting process, and our student vote coming up. Students had to figure out clues that were related to the voting process or correct procedures in a vote. I’m happy to say all 4 teams broke out of the lock boxes! Great job!!!

Math Circles

Math Circles from Dalhousie University visited SMECA on Friday, October 4th to give a series of math-related presentations to students from P-9 and several senior high classes. It’s safe to say that brains were stretched to the limit with fun and challenging puzzles, patterns and problems!

Art 11/12

Students in the Art 11/12 class took an apple and had to look at it and draw it from their perspective. I asked each student to take a bite from the apple and place it back on the table. They had to then draw it again from the same angle but with the bite out of it. They continued to do this until they finished their apple. They were asked to make the apple last for at least 10 bites.

 

Grade Nine students map their communities

Last year the grade 9 civics class sponsored by the World Wildlife Federation created a map of the Eastern Shore communities. Julie Adamson; artist and Janet O’Brien; teacher compiled the students works and created a map for display at SMECA. Special thank you to community member Ruth Legge for providing our students with this learning opportunity.
