Students from grad 3-12 performed in a school wide dance performance called INSPIRE.
It was amazing.
Blake and some of his peeps before the show.
Chilling in the music room, before the dance. The dudes on the stairs. In the performance itself.
This short clip is from the actual performance.
This much longer one is from after. Bella and Blake put on the show again at home.
Today was our fall carnival. It was cold, rainy and windy so the whole fair was moved inside.
We got to visit with sweet Trinity and her mama. Before his dance performance Blake lined up with some of the crew. Once a week he practices with Mr Alexis at lunch time. And then the dance began.
The kids danced to ABC by the Jackson 5. “easy as 1,2,3” Big smiles from Blake and Lotta. There were also lots of fun games to be played. The HS robotics club made this for their activity. There were raffles and Blake got to draw the very first one. We did not win! But our friends the Davids won a family pass to Disney. And my friend Paula won a build your own ukelele kit which is kind of cool.
Our very international community celebrates UN Day every year. One of the things we encourage is for every child to dress in clothes that reflect their own home country or culture. It’s pretty amazing. We also have a fun lunch provided by parents with food from our own country. Blake and I always chip in pancakes and maple syrup. Every year they get eaten all up.
This year we celebrated the Blue Jays in our UN Day clothes.
Blake’s friend Neil is from Vancouver, though he appears to be a Leafs fan.
We also send home paper dolls for kids to decorate at home. Can you spot Blake?
Then they get hung up in the corridor to celebrate our diversity at SAS.
Here’s Blake’s class on UN Day.
I see Belgium, Korea, Italy, Singapore, USA, Canada, Taiwan, China and more.
Some pics that have been collecting from everyday @ SAS.
Published Story: Blake wrote a story about walking in the woods with my parents when he was very young. It was a tearjerker for me. Dance practice – Blake goes to dance practice 2x per week. He’s performing this Saturday at our school carnival. CAN’T WAIT to see him move!! We’re looking forward to seeing this movie at Christmas time in Canada.
Fire drill!! & PJ day.
