  • [Article 4450]Students Celebrate 100 Days of Learning

    By Mr. Craig’s Media Class

    Students at Sioux Mountain Public School celebrated 100 days of learning on the morning of Monday, February 3rd, by getting together for a number of 100-themed-tasks.  Grades 1,2 and 3 teamed up for the occasion, and did some fun activities.


    Teacher Tracey Donnelly organized this event.  She told us there were five activities for the students: counting out 100 snacks for their snack bag, building structures with 100 cups, making 100 day glasses, stamping 10 sets of 10 with bingo dabbers, and making necklaces with 100 fruit loops.


    Grade 2 student Kobe told us his favourite activity was making the bags of 100 candies.  “You can keep it for lunch or snack time” he said.  Grade 1 student John also enjoyed eating the candies.  He noticed “I got a loose tooth when eating the candies”.  John’s favourite activity was making the 100 day glasses.

    Donnelly summed up the activity by saying “Students really enjoyed a change in routine to celebrate being 100 days smarter!”

  • [Article 4430]Report Card Advice for Students!

    By Addison D.


    Report cards are coming out February 13th. Oh by the way I wouldn’t try to hide it or throw it out (It gets mailed to your parents). So I would just save the big plan to hide it and give it to your parents now. Anyways if you’re in Grade 7&8 you get percentages like a +D is a 57%, +C is a 67%, +B is a 77% and +A is a 95%. So don’t worry if you get a bad grade I just wouldn’t expect your parents to be happy.. Teachers are very busy at work preparing for the report cards. I sat down with Mr.Craig the French teacher and asked him Do you think it is important for students to go over their report card with their parents, and why?  “It is important for students  and parents to share report cards, so that parents are aware of their child’s progress and  they can set goals  together”.  And they are very very truthful so please don’t yell haha. Well I hope you get something good. Bye☼

  • [Article 4364]Intermediate Students Participate in Soccer Tournament

    By: Vanessa

    On Wednesday, the students of Sioux Mountain went to New Prospect public school in Dryden, for a soccer tournament. The Sioux Mountain Thunderwolves, tied against Lillian Berg and Ignace and lost against Sacred Heart.

    The scores against Lillian Berg was 1-1. The scores against Ignace was 2-2. The scores against Sacred Heart was 5-1 due to penalty shots during the final half. Ms.McMaster says, “It wasn’t all about winning the tournament, it would have been great too, but it was very fun for everyone and we all had a good time watching Sacred Heart in the semi-finals.”

    Soccer all-star C.Eric missed 4 shots on the Ignace goalie. All-star goalie G.Ethan let in only 1 shot, in his whole time in the net (not letting in any of the other attempted goals!) The students have had practice three times a week, for 4 weeks and were extremely pumped to be going to Dryden for a tournament. Thank you to all the teams that came out, all the coaches for setting it up, the people running the canteen, the schools for coming, and to the city of Dryden for letting us use their soccer fields and nets. It was just really wonderful for everyone, and I hope a lot of people who went to watch and play had an amazing time like our team did!

    A lot of us on the team are really good friends, and had a wonderful time on the bus ride there and back!  Everybody on the team enjoyed being in Dryden and being with each other. Our coaches Mrs. Ward and Ms. McMaster did a wonderful job at coaching us and setting up the tournament. The students had a lot of fun during practices, and our own games against each other while practice. Thank you everybody!   The soccer season is now over, and everyone can’t wait for it to return in the next school year.

  • [Article 4360]Terry Fox Run

    On Thursday September 26, 2013 there will be a Terry Fox run held at the Sioux Mountain Public School. This Terry Fox run is being held by Mr. Craig’s Leadership Group. The students are running for Terry Fox and this year we are also going to raise money for cancer research. We are doing the Terry Fox run because Terry Fox is a Canadian hero. Terry Fox is a Canadian hero because he was going to run all the way across Canada but he stopped in Thunder Bay Ontario because of his cancer that had come back in his lungs . He ran across Canada to raise money for cancer because he did now all across canada we raise money in memory of terry fox. We asked Mr. Craig how many years has the Terry Fox run been going on at Sioux Mountain. Mr. Craig said” Sioux Mountain has been raising money since 2005”.  We also asked him why we have a Terry Fox Run.   He said “ to help Terry Fox to fulfill his dream to find a cure for cancer”.

  • Featured Image[Article 4271]New school year begins!

    A new year has begun at Sioux Mountain Public School. This morning, students lined the sidewalks outside the school, waiting to enter the building to see what the new school year will bring. Junior student Tristan said that he is “more than excited” to be back at school today. Junior student Hunter also said he was happy to be back.

    “One of the best things about coming back after the summer is to see how all the kids have grown” said Bruna Parker, an Educational Assistant.

    Many of the new grade 7 and 8 students said they were not happy to be back, but the smiles on their faces spoke louder than that words that came out.

    Later this morning, the school will assemble in the gym so that the students are officially welcomed back to Sioux Mountain.
