Morinville – On Monday, Oct. 3, students at the Morinville Public Elementary School (MPES) enjoyed a day at Telus World of Science. All of the kindergarten to Grade 4 students got to experience “Bugs” in the IMAX theatre. The group then split up to take in everything from the Bubble Fun program, to the Green Scene (recycling) program, and all of the galleries in between.

It will be a busy week for the Grades 3 and 4 students. On Tuesday, they were lucky enough to have Curtis Dunford from the Edmonton Science Outreach Network (ESON) in to talk about rocks, minerals, and Diavik Diamond Mines Inc. Thursday, Grades 1 through 4 will be talking fire safety with a local fire fighter, and doing a practice fire drill at the Community Cultural Centre.

This promising school will really spread its wings on Oct. 13 when it hosts MPES’s first Family Night. There will be activities, a book fair, hayrides between the two school locations, and a dinner. Big City Car Wash has generously donated turkeys for the celebration. The doors will be open to the public at 6:30 p.m. for those who would like to share in our growing family and learn more about the Reggio Emilia philosophy, a world-renowned approach to early childhood education.
