Did you know...
Since 1952, the Monday before May 24 has been celebrated with fireworks and festivities as Victoria Day even though Queen Victoria, whose birthday is being honored, had been dead for many years. Throughout the British Empire in the 19th century it was the custom to celebrate the monarch’s birthday officially. Queen Victoria ruled for so many years that Canadians got accustomed to having a holiday on the 24th of May. And so her birthday has become a permanent Canadian holiday, except in Quebec where the holiday is called Fȇte de Dollard des Ormeaux.
Pine Classroom Grows Tomatos!
The tomato plants in the Pine Classroom have been growing strong and healthy thanks to the love, care and dedication the children have put into their small indoor gardens!
Casa children ventured out to the local park on earth day to help keep the community clean, while the toddler children helped clean the surrounding school area.
It's growing season!
Casa children search for earth worms in the school planters while they wait for the veggies to grow.
