I'm very excited to be back at Metepenagiag School this year as the Grade 3/4 homeroom teacher! I also will be teaching your child Math, Physical Education, Health, and instructing the Read 180 program with Miss Rubidge. The staff and students had a great first day back, and were eager to see some old classmates along with some new faces this year! Your child has brought home various information letters and slips, some of which are to be sent back. Please make sure to sign any permission slips and bring them back with your child ASAP. Thank you for your cooperation! Ms Watling

   Just a reminder that the school will be having their first STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - Expo tomorrow, Thursday May 29th from 6pm - 7pm. This is a time for your family to visit the school and explore student (from grades 3 - 6) projects using an iPad. The iPad will link each project with a student video explaining the project. This new and innovative STEM Expo is a must see!    In addition, the STEM Expo will be an opportunity for families to explore a variety of fun engineering and science-based activities with members of their family. Unlike Family Literacy and Math Night where students travelled around from class to class with their classmates; the STEM Expo will have all activities in the gym and there is no structured time limit. Families can visit the STEM Expo, explore student projects, and complete fun activities for as little or as much time as they like, between 6pm & 7pm. Refreshments will not be served due to the technology equipment and student work being displayed.     The students are very excited to share their innovative and cutting edge STEM Expo. We hope to see you all tomorrow!
