Spuds in Tubs – Harvest & Potato Party 2018

Monday June 18th was “The Great Potato Harvest  & Party of 2018!”  All the primary students at South Slope gathered outside to harvest our potato crop together!  You may  remember, long, long ago (ha ha!)…. well, before Spring Break we planted our potatoes, since then we have watered, fertilized and EVEN sung to our potatoes as they grew.

The second big highlight of the day was when it was time to enjoy our Potato Sundaes!!   Thank you to Ms Shuster for putting together this great video & to Mrs Fierro for picking up all our Potato Toppings!

Science World Fieldtrip!

We had a fantastic day exploring Science World!  We also had the great opportunity to attend a Workshop called “Radical Ramps.”  We learned about gravity, forces (push and pull), and friction.

Before we caught the bus back to school we explored the cool new playground beside Science World!

We were excited to return to our classroom and find ways to make more Radical Ramps with the materials in our classroom!

Thank you parents and families for supporting us in this exciting opportunity!

Alice in Wonderland! It’s Showtime!!!

The last few weeks have been super busy as we’ve been preparing for our school musical – Alice in Wonderland!! The children were sooo excited to sing their songs and show you their fancy footwork!!  We hope you enjoyed the show!  This is a memory your children will treasure for the rest of their lives.  We are so very lucky to have such a fantastic music teacher at our school!!  Here is a little video of our class during their times “on stage”.   The opening number, our Caucus Race and the Finale!


Snow & School – What to do if it snows!

As winter weather approaches, there is occasionally the chance it will snow.  You may wonder if the school will be open or not.  Typically it will be!  

If Burnaby closes the schools they will post it on the front page of the district website by about 6:30am.   Click here:  Burnaby School District Website


The most reliable way to learn of school closures is to listen for updates on the following radio stations: CBC 690 AM;
CBC Radio One 88.1 FM; CKWX 1130 AM; CKNW 980 AM; Fairchild 1470 AM; or Fairchild 96.1 FM.

PLEASE….do not call the school.  Thanks so much!

Spuds in Tubs – Harvest & Potato Party!!

Our Spuds in Tubs have been growing since March and we were finally were able to harvest them on Friday. The Primary classes met outside and dug our hands into the soil to harvest our potatoes! It was amazing to see how big some of the potatoes were this year. We found lots of bugs too! Mr Brown’s & Ms Cheung’s classes counted the potatoes — we harvested over 500 Spuds this year! Later in the day we cooked them and met as a group to make potato sundaes with butter, sour cream, cheese, salt & pepper. Yum!! Potatoes are soooooo good!
