Campus was a sea of blue, gold, and a lot of school spirit Thursday as students from Kindergarten through grade 5 enjoyed participating in the annual St. Anne School Field Day. The day started early with students joining their teams and participating in golf putting, hockey shooting, a free throw competition, a water relay race; sponge, ring, football, and balloon tosses; tug-a-war, a balloon launch competition, among many other events. Parent volunteers helped throughout the games and encouraged school spirit through festive face painting.
Grade 7 students took a unique approach to learning about the book “Crispin: The Cross of Lead.” Students were tasked with creating a trailer for a proposed movie, and were given the choice to create a faithful adaptation or modernize the tale, as long as the basic story of Crispin remained. Students used iMovie, Garage Band for music, point and shoot cameras, and adding green screen technology.
The grade 5 students learned how to make QR codes to showcase their best tech work this year. QR stands for quick response. The students made QR codes that linked to their technology projects that they made throughout the course of the year. The QR codes were then printed on cardstock cubes. During Open House parents used their own smart phones to scan the cubes and were treated to samples of spreadsheets, graphs, writing samples, brochures, websites, google drawings, an avatar, and even movies that their children made.
