Thursday was Poem In My Pocket Day
Keep a poem in your pocket
And a picture in your head
And you;ll never feel lonely
At night when you're in bed.

The little poem will sing to you
The little picture bring to you
A dozen dreams to dance to you
At night when you're in bed.

Keep a picture in your pocket
And a poem in your head
And you'll never feel lonely
At night when you're in bed.

DO MORE WATCH LESS...Hey Credit Meadows, did you know that kids your age are spending way too much time in front of screens, which means they are being less active which of course isn't good for your health.  Take the SCREEN FREE challenge from April 30th - May 6th and try other activities.  You could win a $50.00 gift certificate from Booklore.  Tracking sheets are available from your teacher or in the library.

We welcomed Mr. Logan Sheppard as PRINCIPAL FOR THE DAY on Friday, April 27th.  Logan, from Mrs. H-T's class, won this special prize from our Boogie-a-thon!  You did a GREAT job, Logan!

Intermediate Arts Day happened on Friday - what an amazing, creative day it was for our grade 7 & 8's!  Thanks to all our creative guests who came and shared their talents!  A magician, cartoonist, sculptor, drummer and silk-screener.

Silver Birch and Silver Birch Express did their voting on Friday.
BAKING CLUB met to begin preparing for the Snack Shack that will happen at Springtime In The Meadows.  There will be some yummy treats available for only $1.00 each.
