Manitoba artists TiBert et Douzie- French Metis Canadians!
Our school was visited by the multi-talented Manitoba artists TiBert et Douzie! These French Métis Canadians shared vivid stories, played traditional francophone instruments with a fun modern twist, and even taught some jigging and other traditional dancing. So much fun was had!
Numeracy Night Oct 26, 2023
Thank you to all our families that came to our Family Numeracy Night, October 26th. School staff hosted stations where approximately 85 students and families explored different aspects of numeracy, explore some games and activities they could do at home together. Students left with some cards, dice and some game ideas! And we can’t forget to say a huge thanks to Terri Bulldog for sharing her talents and supplying soup and bannock to help sustain those who attended.
Entrepreneur Day 2023!
Students were encouraged to get creative and think outside the box to see what kind of entrepreneur they could be. With help from their parents they set up booths to sell their products. Everything from homemade lemonade, baking, bunny manure and key chains! It was a very successful event and we look forward to hosting it next year.
On May 31st, Ecole Springfield School was fortunate to have Allan and Ann Koski from Willow Point Land Based Learning come set up and do some tipi teachings. They were so generous in sharing their knowledge and stories with our kindergarten through grade four students. Even the rain couldn't dampen our spirits, as inside the tipi we were cozy and dry!
