Mr. Renwick is sick today.

COVID-19 update: We should all be doing what we can to increase social distance, and flatten the curve of the coronavirus epidemic. There are now 3 documented community transmission cases in BC, and 2 health care workers at the Lynn Valley Care Centre have been tested positive for COVID-19.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Hyde:

“If we do not have the ability to contact people — for example, if somebody was in a public place and they did not know all the people there — we would make that public. But we have not been in that situation.”

Gardening outside: Split into groups of 2-4, and have each group work on one of the following tasks.

  • Rip up weeds in the raspberry bush, tea garden, and around the compost bins
  • Take a painted planter and remove all the soil to the middle compost bin. Layer the soil with leaves. Strain the rocks/gravel out, and put in the pile in the corner.
  • Rake the leaves up off of the ground.

On Friday, we will work on inquiry projects all class.
