Que Pasa @ The Jubilee Auditorium
On Monday, May 8, Spanish bilingual program school students from across the CBE came together at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium for an evening in celebration of Spanish language, music and culture. Ten Spanish bilingual schools were represented by over 750 student performers in an extravaganza of song, dance and art.

Students were visited again by our friends over at CAWST (Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology). This time they were given a humantiarian design challenge and were asked to think of potential ways to respond to a water/sanitation need. Students created prototypes of their designs and presented to the group for feedback.
The grade 3s are wrapping up their community building projects and getting ready to share their hard work at our Academic Sharing night (Thursday, May 18). We had so much fun working on a project that incorporated so many difference disciplines. Great work grade 3s!
