Thanks to Lenny and Paula for again organizing our annual Car Wash Fundraiser! The fireman: Charles Agnew, Austin Beck, Stephen Coulter for their ongoing help in making this event possible.

The children and staff always have a great time washing cars for the public, although it seems at times that perhaps more children are washing each other than they are washing cars :)

A huge thank you to all the adults that work hard with our cildren every day; the Fire Department and Lenny and Paula!

We've (2-3s) been working on the Invisble Forces unit and focusing on magnetism. There were 6 stations and at each station the kids had to investigate, observe and play with magnets!

A few weeks ago, we (2-3s) went outside a gathered soil from different areas around the school. We investigated the soil and made observations about what we saw, regarding what was in it, the color, texture, etc.  We then planted flower seeds in each sample to see which sample would provide the seed with the nutrients it needs to grow.  We are still waiting for our flowers to grow!!!! Check out the gallery for more pictures!

As part of an introduction to the one of the three leading cultures of area that are the make-up of our Kent Region, we decided to read literature on the Dream Catcher to help us discover the story of where Dream Catchers originated. The children of Harcourt School were introduced to this legend and were provided the opportunity to create their own Dream Catchers! The project is not yet complete, but our students are enjoying the creativity and connection to our area that is rich in Native, Francophone and Anglophone heritarige.

The students of Harcourt School enjoyed an informative, fun and challenging day at Resurgo Place. We started our day by making a brief stop at Centennial Park to eat lunch and we even had a chance to play on the equipment!

We descovered many previously unknown facts about jet-fuel and plastics; albertite (which led to the name of Albert County) and that Mr. K. Scully is actually  "old" enough to have had several similer types of the desplayed artifacts at home as part of his everyday life when growing up...
