Wilfred Hunt Welcomes Author, Alison Lohans

On November 25th, Kindergarten to Grade 2 students enjoyed a visit with a children's author, Alison Lohans.  She read her book Leaving Mr. Humphries to the students and  shared how the bear in the book was inspired by the bear belonging to her son Christopher.  This book is one of the Willow Award nominees for 2015.  One of the comments made by a student after her visit was "she showed us that anyone can be an author".  This is  encouraging for students who are learning to write.  

 

Battle of the Books Crowns Winners

The Junior Battle of the Books took place in October and November.  We had a great number of participants and teams - 42 students and 11 teams.  The students read books that have been chosen for the Battles and answer questions based on the books they have read.  The winning team for this year called themselves the
Purple Magic Cats  and included Hirdey Randhawa, Rogan Fry, Matthew Severson and Logan Weatherald.   They won the final battle on Nov. 25th.  Congratulations!

Learn-A-Thon Begins!!!

Wilfred Hunt is embarking upon a school wide fundraiser to help support our school wide goal of literacy.  Newslsetters will be going home on October 13 with students outlining the process for this year's Learn-A-Thon.  Students will collect pledges either as a flat donation or as a pledge per correct question.  Students will be given a "test" on October 23 based on outcomes from their grade.  Students will then collect the money from their sponsors and return it to the school.  The classroom with the largest amount of money collected for the Learn-A-Thon will be awarded a pizza party!
