Internal and External Forces

The Grade 7’s from Mr. Lieberman’s and Ms. Khairi’s classes have been learning about internal and external forces, their interactions with structures and their structural components. They were tasked to build a bridge at least 30 cm long and 10 cm high with a maximum of 150 Popsicle sticks. They were only allowed to use glue. With limited resources and construction parameters, their bridges still had to support at least 15 science textbooks. Some exceeded structural expectations! 

Come and See the Talent at German Mills!

We invite you to attend our annual spring concert, which will take place on Thursday, May 9th at 6:30pm. It will be a wonderful evening of Music, Dance and Drama. There will be a dress rehearsal for the students after lunch on the same day.  Students between Grades 5 and 8 will be performing and we hope that you can attend. If your child’s class is performing, and he or she cannot attend the evening performance, please let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible. You will be notified if there are any special dress requirements.  As a general rule, performers should never wear clothing with large logos, lettering or pictures. See you on the 9th!

Music Alive

Our Junior Band will be performing at the Music Alive Festival tomorrow! Students should remember to bring their music, instrument, and band attire. We perform at the YCDSB Centre for the Performing Arts between 9:30 and 11:30 am tomorrow!

The Junior Band will also be performing, along with the Senior Band, at next week’s school concert on May 9th.

Our Senior band finished with a Silver Plus rating at Music Alive! It was an excellent performance, and we can’t wait for the community to see them live and in person next week!

Congratulations to the Senior Band, and good luck to the Junior Band tomorrow!
