We began our day with math. Today students worked on review work to help prepare for Monday’s unit test. Students that did not get done in class are asked to complete pages 137 – 138 of the MMS 7 book.
Students attended the Career Day presentation which was hosted by the SJA Student Council.
We continued working on exhibition for the remainder of the day. Our focus for exhibition is still securing the primary source site visit and/or interview. The Animal Agriculture had an interview with PETA today. The Child Neglect group has an interview with a representative of the CAS taking place tomorrow. The Substance Abuse, Invasive Species, and Mental Health groups all have interviews tomorrow too. Another priority remains the action ideas and planning, and to keep researching to answer all concept questions and address all lines of inquiry.
Students began writing the first draft of the essay. Students did not get to go out for second recess if they did not have at least one page of writing done for their essay.
This morning, most groups decided on what they would like to do for their French component. M. Fouad has begun supporting students with this work and will continue to do so during their French time. At the end of the day, students brainstormed ideas for the art component with Mr. Oliver. There is a tie between a black light show and a mannequin parade. Students are asked to look at examples of these tonight and this will be voted on again tomorrow.
Spring fundraiser order forms are due tomorrow.
Students are encouraged to wear a hockey or sports jersey to school tomorrow.
Graduation picture orders are due April 16. Sibling picture orders are due April 18.
Students are asked to bring a baby and current photo of themselves for Arts’ Night by April 20th. We will try our best to get these back to you after Arts’ Night.
Look out for a trip letter coming home today. Students are asked to NOT order a hot lunch for May 8th as we will be away on a trip.

Hockey Jersey Day
As you may be aware, there was a tragic accident that occurred in Saskatchewan on Friday evening. The Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team was involved in an accident while travelling by bus to one of their playoff games, claiming the lives of 15 people and injuring many others. Around the country and world, organizations have shown their support to these victims, their families, and the Humboldt community. Here at St. Jude’s Academy, we strive to have students apply the learner profile attributes and attitudes not only through their studies at school, but in their community. St. Jude’s would like to show our support for the victims and their families by sending our students to school on Thursday, April 12th, wearing their favourite sports jersey to honour the Humboldt Broncos. The school will be holding a short assembly and a moment of silence on Thursday morning for Grades 3-12 to honour these players, coaches, and families. We are asking parents from JK – Grade 2 to have a home conversation with their child in regards to why their child will be wearing a jersey to school on Thursday.
