High School Music Students Visit the ECC

As part of our performance unit, the early years had the privilege of watching  live music during play-based learning. Our high school diploma program students entertained us with a few covers and even allowed us to join in the music fun. The early years would like to send a special thank you to those students and their teachers Ms. Moore and Mr. Wotherspoon!

Introduction to Yoga Practice

Happy Snow Day. I am sure many people are out playing in the snow. If you are looking for some inside physical activity, it may be a good day to look at some of our beginning yoga posses we have explored in PE class.

We have had the pleasure of having a trained yoga instructor, Pia Joyner, assist us in PE class this year. This is a simple introduction that does require adult supervision. Ask your child about other posses they have learned. This would be a great day for the family to practice all together!
