Once again, it has been a fantastic week of learning.  I have especially enjoyed watching my students consider the true sacrifices made on the behalf of all Canadians throughout our studies of World War One.  It has also been exciting to see them embrace the challenges of studying genetics in science class and hearing about their Genius Hour questions.  What a bright group of students I have the privilege to teach this year!
