Griffiths-Scott News

   Sun burns are appearing and this just shows that summer is on its way. With only a month of school left at Griffiths- Scott, provincial achievement tests are being written and students are studying for final exams. The only sport left now is track and field. After that summer vacation is the only thing to look forward to.

    At the beginning of the school year our school felt empty. By empty I mean no memories to remember, it just didn’t feel like home. Over the year memories have been built, they may not be all good memories but they are memories that will stick with us forever. We made the new building our new home and its not empty anymore. To make our school really feel like home, murals were painted. One is in the lobby and it stands with pride, there is another in the gym and when you walk into the gym you feel intimidated. This is exactly what we needed to make our school feel less empty and more homey.

    Badminton season has come and gone and Griffiths Scott had one student come out with a medal. Rachel Salyn brought home a bronze in the junior girls, singles category. That’s not all she won though, she won a bet with her coach too. The bet was if Rachel could pull off getting a medal he would dress up like a girl for a walk around the school. He kept his bet and did it. It was great fun watching him walk around the school and the looks on peoples faces were priceless. Congratulations Rachel!

    To wrap up a unit in the grade 8 science, students in grade 8 got to go on a very fun field trip. They went rafting down the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton. They did water testing, checked out the sewage waste management plant and most of all paddled down the river. They came back saying it was great fun and a very interesting experience. This field trip was only possible because of their teacher, Ms. Saunders, for planning the trip since the beginning of the year.

    This school year is wrapping up fast and before we know it, it will be behind us. Other than the Grade nines, this means next year is a whole new year to make all new memories that will keep making our school our  home. For the Grade nines, they are about to hit a whole new chapter in life, high school.
