Ms. Read will be taking 2 teams of intermediate students to the Lindsay Recreation Centre on Wednesday, April 27th. Each team will consist of 4 students.
Why? It’s the TLDSB’s annual Cardboard Race Competition! For the past several years, the TLDSB has organized a competition in which students have to use limited materials (just cardboard and tape, I believe) to plan and build a cardboard boat which will travel the length of the pool. Aside from the obvious fun involved, there is also a great deal of skill and creativity required. This “thinking outside of the box” is a highly valued skill in school and life – which makes this an outstanding event for students.
Enjoy yourselves, students!
