Each one is unique and will be sent home on Friday to decorate students' homes for Thanksgiving

Terry Fox Event 2018

Friday September 28 was a special day at Reston School.  Along with a visit from author Sigmund Brouwer, it was the day of our annual Terry Fox Event.  We spent time at our morning meeting discussing what the purpose behind our run is today. 

The money raised through donations goes to support cancer research.  I shared with the class how I was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago and because of the research, I am healthy and back teaching again!  We wrote ideas on stickers to wear of who each of us would be thinking about as we went around Reston.  

Grades 2 - 12 then spent the afternoon at our wonderful Memorial Park where a variety of activities were enjoyed by all.

Keep an eye on school news for our final fundraising total for 2018!

Fall Art

This week, we took on a Fall Art Project.  The first day, everyone made the trunk of a tree with brown construction paper and glued it onto a white paper.  

The next step was leaves and thanks to Gregory and his family, we had a bagful of paper towel rolls.  We were able to use them as stamps with paint to create a forest full of unique trees on our back bulletin board.
