WSD NetNotes - March 2018

Mission patch selected for space bound student project

This April, two schools from WSD will be sending their experiments up to the International Space Station as part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program.

The program is hosted by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education.

The Winnipeg School Division SSEP Mission Patch Competition was open to over 64 elementary schools at the Nursery to Grade 6 level.  Finalist patches from eight schools were selected and one patch was chosen to represent the community alongside the two Mission 12 SSEP projects chosen for flight.

Over 215 students submitted their patches for consideration. Students, Teachers and Administrators from participating schools voted and chose two finalist patches that showcased the unique talents and creativity of Winnipeg School Division students, making the final decision very difficult. Grade 6 student Ava LeBlanc from Grosvenor School created the selected patch design. Congratulations to all the SSEP Mission Patch Design participants!

Music for the Moose


The River Elm School Choir recently had the opportunity to sing "O Canada" at a Moose hockey game on Jan. 20, 2018. 

"The students really enjoyed the experience of being behind the scenes at a hockey game," said Chris Budlong, Music Teacher.  "The experience of performing is an important part of music learning.  It gives students an appreciation of what is involved in preparing for a musical performance - the rehearsal time, attention to detail, and preparing so much that the song is automatic."  

The students walked onto the ice and performed the anthem in front of more than 5000 Moose fans.

After their performance, the students stayed to watch the Moose play the Texas Stars.
