Alumni Update

Dear alumni,

Thanks to all of you who helped out in so many different ways at the Starry Night Dinner. It was great to see so many of you there enjoying the evening and using your many talents again to serve St. Tim's. We managed to bring in a whopping $31,000 with a net benefit of $16,000 for the school. Thank you so much for helping the evening to run smoothly and to all who shared their talents in performances.

A special thank you goes to the mischievous alumni group who put together a collective bid on the silent auction to force the teachers outside their comfort zones for the "Teacher Switch" that happened today. Thank you for your generosity, and the fun you initiated!

"Docteur Petit"

 
As you can see our alumni were out in force on the stage (as was Dr. Klaassen: he read Stephen Leacock's "Aristocratic Education" - look it up). Do YOU have an idea for an entertaining performance for next year's dinner? A favorite poem or scene from a play? Or maybe a repeat of something you did for a Mid-Winter Festival or a school concert? You can perform on your own or get together with friends form the school. Let us know and we'll put you on the program!
FIRST-EVER TEACHER SWITCH DAY
draco dormiens nunquam titillandus  (have a go at translating that one!)
That's what you get when Mrs. Bloomquist and Mrs. Swim teach grades 7/8 Latin and calligraphy!
Beautifully detailed, finely-coloured tessellations were produced in the grades 5/6 "math", ahem, class under the careful guidance of Mrs. Nanda and Miss Martin.
Coaches Nauta and Teoh (Ana) gave the grades 3/4 class an exhausting animal-themed work out in Phys Ed.
Docteur Petit et Docteur Patrick ont enseigné en français avec beaucoup d'humour les élèves de la 2ème.  Elles leur ont appris non seulement les noms des parties du corps humain  mais aussi quelques parties du corps des animaux...Vous savez qu'est-ce que c'est un foie de cochon?
Dr. Klassen surprised the grade 1s with his artistic talents. First he explained the philosophy and history of art, and then proceeded to teach them how to draw.
Mrs. McPherson, to quote one student, "stuck shapes on paper" with the SKs.
And of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of the iron fist of our nouvelle Directrice, Mme Rusu!
"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things. "
Philippians 4:8
