We have had a wonderful time in the Learning Commons getting into the Christmas Spirit. We finished up our Postage Stamp Collecting classes and hope to have a lunch meeting or two in the new year.
We also sipped on hot apple cider, to mixed reviews, and listened to some great Christmas stories in front of our virtual fireplace.
Our big news is the development of our Learning Commons Twitter account. Follow us @VanierLC. Students are tweeting news, ideas, comments and mini book reviews.
The message from Division 7 is ‘Put Up, not Put Down’. In the Learning Commons we have been discussing the power of ‘Paying it Forward’ and how one small act of kindness can have a ripple effect. Students designed posters and kicked off their kindness campaign to help students understand the power of put ups. This was not a one time event and students will be encouraging others to join their project. Check out their blogs here
