Hello Parents/Guardians,

I just wanted to let you know that your child will be starting Drama on Tuesday February 21, 2017! 

We will be focusing less on Dance and we will be learning about the elements of Drama until June. 

Have a wonderful day,

Mrs. Nasser

Currie's Class: Media Literacy Update

Hello Parents/Guardians, 

My name is Rachel Nasser and I am the Media Literacy teacher for Mrs. Currie's class. I will be sending home a formal media literacy update soon but for now, I wanted to share with you a type of media that we created as a class in December.  

As a class, we created an electronic picture book using the app, "Book Creator". Each student made a cover page for our book. We voted as a class on which cover page we liked the best. That student's cover page became our class title page for our book. Each student designed a picture book page for our class book and added a sound effect.

We hope you will enjoy our online story book!
