A Minute With Mme Amy: artists in residence, exchange students, and kid jokes

  • All week, our Grade 5 and 6 classes have hosted the Trickster Theatre Company, who have worked with the students to create an original theatrical production, on the themes of human rights and global citizenship. Along with our K-4 students, I watched this afternoon’s dress rehearsal, and was blown away by the show. The performance, which includes black light theatre, drama, dance, movement, and mime, addresses issues such as gender equality, the right to an education, respecting individual beliefs, and the right to self-expression.

More concerts, after-school holiday play, and supporting little introverts

This week, I have attended four more holiday concerts, these ones for kindergarten, Grade 1, Grades 2 - 4, and Grades 5 - 6. This brings my grand total up to 10 concerts in 6 school days! While this makes for undeniably busy days, it brings me so much joy to see our students progress from whispering 3 year olds to confident 6th graders playing their instruments.

Concerts, stone soup, and holiday anxiety

In the last three days, I have had the enormous pleasure of attending all six of the preschool and JK winter concerts. I even got to narrate the preschool performances! At every show, I was blown away by our students’ growth and confidence, our teachers’ passion and patience, and parents’ pride in your little ones’ performances. Thanks to all of you for making time to be part of this magical time of year.
