In reflection 2019 was a great year! We grew pumpkins, engaged with robots, cooked up a storm in our kitchen and many more. We did field trips to the Skills BC as well as the Amazon Headquarters in Vancouver for a coding workshop. We had guest speakers from Mr.Stephenson from Walnut Grove Secondary School to our very own Constable McLaren. Here are some of our amazing snapshots of 2019! And now we get to step into the FANTASTIC 2020… Exciting time ahead!
From the national Code-Mobile visiting us to the Hour of Code… Code-inspiration is moving throughout James Kennedy School. Thanks to Code-Mobilsters Matt and Carling for sharing with our intermediates the wonderful world of Scratch! As well as our talented Saju Abraham from Left of the Dot came to share his expertise with our young coders. This is definitely a wonderful time of the year!
Looking back on this year… I must say that it’s been another amazing and innovative year! My JKE inspiring highlights were: our bi-annual Coding & Innovation Club, Inspire Showcases, making soapsicles with the JK Kids Company, IDEA Summit, Diversity Week, sharing at TIE-BC and the Surrey Girls Conferences, Wheelchair Basketball, Orange Shirt Day, Rick Hansen Foundation presentation on Diversity, our JK Inspire team presenting at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Provincial School, Spirit Days, Talent Show, All Wheels Event and welcoming international guests to see our talented JKE kids! So grateful for such a talented and amazing community at James Kennedy… from the kids to the admin to the Special Ed Assistants to the teachers to the families! Here’s to an unforgettable year and more adventures to come.
We have had an amazing May! From doing Inspire Robotic workshops with our JKE Team at the BC School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing to the Star Wars Day with everything from Microbits to showcase to the IDEA Summit selling Soapsicles… it’s been an unforgettable May so far! So grateful to the amazing team that made all these opportunities of inclusion happen for children of all abilities!!!!
