Douglas Harkenss School is a caring school set within in the caring community; Pineridge! This was very evident this week as our school was invited to spend the day at Village Square Leisure Center. Our Kindergarten, grade 1 and 2 students went in the morning and the grades 3,4,5 and 6 went in the afternoon and what a great day it was! JUST THINK about the logistics (and Math) involved!
We have 287 students, but our EDC weren't able to come, so subtract 18. We brought 17 teachers, 4 support staff and 18 incredible parent volunteers. How many people walked to Village Square Leisure Center? How many steps did they each take? How many steps were there all together just to get to our destination?
Even if you can't do all that Math, I can tell you that there are a lot of grateful kids and teachers. And one very happy principal. Thanks to everyone involved!
