Grade 4 field trip Glenbow Museum On April 17, the grade 4 classes enjoyed a fun-filled day of discovery at the Glenbow Museum. Through our guide, Sheldon we learned about the language and stories of the Blackfoot People. In the second program, students developed skills of critical and creative thinking and showed decision making, problem solving, cooperation, and consensus building by creating their own civilization based on artefacts. It was a great day of hands on learning. Thanks to our many parent volunteers!
