Kings Landing                                                                  

Mr. Johnson's and Ms Higgins' classrooms went to Kings Landing on Friday, October 3, 2014 for a field trip.  Kings Landing is located in Fredericton, New Brunswick, so we had to cross the Canadian border. Grades 5-8 went with Mr. Johnson's group.  I thought it was really fun.  The fifth through seventh grade girls dressed up in dresses from the 1800's, while the boys were outside playing croquet and riding a wooden horse. There were many highlights like the houses, the clothes, the people, and the animals. My favorite part of the trip was riding the carts and seeing the horses. There were stores, and they brought you in and made you feel like you were really in the 1800's. I'm sure that everyone had fun. I would love to go back again.       By Chloe                      

Halloween Party

On October 31 WVS is having our annual Halloween party in the morning!

On that day, we will be doing lots of spooky things like.... Spooky stories, and hay bail scramble! After that we will have lunch which will be very yummy! We will end that  Halloween madness with an early release.   By Tyler

Plants in the Greenhouse

Everyone in the school has started a plant in a big can or tray. Every week I will give you a report about how the plants are growing. This time I noticed that different types of lettuce grew differently. The black-seeded Simpson lettuce hasn't grown at all. While other lettuces, like the Solvenova lettuce, is growing well. Some other plants that aren’t growing well are the parsnips and spinach.   By Antonio


At the pumpkin patch there were orange, white, and green pumpkins, but we all got the ones we wanted. Everyone in the upper grades had a pre-ker to pair up with and help pick a pumpkin. We cut the stems on the pumpkin and got our name written on them. Then we got on the bus and went back to school. When we got there, the upper graders unloaded the pumpkins from Mrs. Hall's truck that had carried them back to school.   By Melach


In the uppergrade room, we have already started doing the year book, so we can get a head start on it and get all the pictures of the year in them.  Like the pumpkin patch and Kings Landing trips, which both of them were very fun by the way,  other stuff will be worked on as the tear goes on. Make sure when the year book comes you buy one.     By  Sadie

Art Class

The WVS art class, for grades 5 and 6 are doing a “shade” theme this week. Mrs. Fo, the art teacher, wants us to see the different shades. My opinion is I think it's great, fun and interesting.  If you want to know more about it, you can read about it in the next article.    By Abby
