Have a great March break, everyone!
Here’s a message from Mr. Hope of Australia:
“Mrs Theriault, Thank you so much for encouraging your students to contact the wonderful young bloggers of LA19. The students were thrilled to receive messages from Canada and have enjoyed planning their comments to post on your students’ blogs. The whole process has been very inspirational, especially for my first time bloggers. Kind regards – Mr. Hope”
Every year the people at Edu-Blogs run a competition for the Best Student Blog. This year three St. Lawrence School student blogs made the shortlist from among several thousand nominations! They are Sofia Online, Christina Online and Dave Online. Voting is now closed for the Best Student Blog Award. Congratulations again to the three students who made the finals – and congratulations to all our other fine bloggers!
Catherine Arcands’s film Nightmare at School is about elementary students’ fears as they approach secondary school.
Surrealism is a style or movement in which various real objects are combined in a fantastical (or even magical) way.

For my Grade 6 students :-)
Here’s what to do if you’d like to keep your blog for yourself.
1. Ask your parents for permission first.
2. Ask your parents to email me using the email that will be used to register the blog. This is the email address where they will receive updates whenever you post AND be able to moderate your comments.
3. Once I have parental permission and the email address, we’ll set up the blog from school.
