An Update from the Little School

Lunar New Year

Students in JK and SK celebrated the Lunar New Year, on February 3rd, with special activities. Parents helped the girls with crafts such as, paper lanterns and dragon puppets, and helped the SK girls cook chow mein and wontons.

Reading Buddies

The JK and SK girls from the little school have been paired with reading buddies from the junior school. The JK classes are paired with Grade 5 and the SK classes with Grade 3. The JK and SK girls read to their big buddies and also do crafts and other activities together. This week SKY travelled to the junior school to meet their buddies in 3Y for the first time. This partnership helps the girls develop their reading skills, while also providing a peer mentor.


Recently, the JK and SK classes at the little school received an ipad and an ipod touch. The students are using this technology to practice literacy, printing, math, and critical thinking skills. The girls have enjoyed having them in the classroom, and have even taught their teachers a few things!

A York House Halloween

Some great costumes this Halloween from both students and staff, including a “double rainbow”, Skittles and M&Ms, Snooki from Jersey Shore, Velma from Scooby Doo and a couple of “Where’s Waldos?”. The Junior School got in the spirit with a pumpkin carving competition, haunted house and some pretty great costumes too!
