Playschool is Celebrating Christmas!

There is a lot going on in the Playschool class this week as we get ready for Christmas!
 
Students read Christmas stories.
Ms. Williams reads and acts out La Nativité: Bébé Jésus, Marie et Joseph, L’Ange visite Marie for the students.

 Students get to play with Santa’s beard, as they manipulate shaving cream to give Santa a new look.

  Roll the die and see how many dots to place on the picture.
Children learn about hygiene and taking care of others, as they get to bathe their own baby Jesus.

Operation Christmas Child

We donated 39 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes!! Woohoo!! Many thanks to all at Olivet, teachers and families, for their generous support of Operation Christmas Child!
 
Each classroom collected donations for their students’ age group and organized the donations into individual shoeboxes.
 
 

 
The older students helped load up the van with shoe boxes and unload at St. Andrews.  The students enjoyed their time there and got a little better idea of the scope of this project.

Terry Fox Run


Last Friday the students participated in the Terry Fox Run. Our run took us from the school to the creek. They ran 1.5km. The students thought about how difficult it would have been for Terry Fox to run 40km a day! The students had a great time.

Mississauga Marafun Marathon

 
This is the first year that Olivet participated in the Mississauga Marafun Marathon.  Olivet is proud to announce that fifteen of our students ran the 2 km Mississauga Marathon along with some parents and teachers! Everyone was in fine form and we gathered (all 34 if us!) for a celebratory lunch! The sun smiled on us and the temperature was perfect. Many thanks to the parents for their support of this our first Olivet Marafun Marathon!!! See you next year!
