Banqer Auction

Today there was great excitement in class as we prepared for our pod Banqer auction. Students were able to use the money they have saved in their virtual bank accounts to buy items brought in by everyone. We had books, cars, robots, art, even musical instruments.

We learned about reserve amounts, bidding increments, and how to place a bid on a silent auction. What incredible learning.

Thanks to all our families for their continued support!

Life Ed

This morning we had our second visit to the Life Education van with our educator and Harold. One of the many things we talked about was empathy, how understanding how other people are feeling is really tricky but also necessary for us to build positive relationships.



  1. Watch and listen
  2. Remember
  3. Imagine
  4. Ask
  5. Show your care

We know that we all need to keep working on our abilities to respond in the right way to help others.
