provided by a generous donor of School #8." Mr Produce"
provided and delivered the pumpkins with our own Safety

very happy with theirs!
October 30th - Halloween Parade!
Senora Garbayo's lesson on "la
casa de la Bruja Maruja" in the grade two World Language
class met with happy faces as her house turned out to be "la
calabaza"! A pumpkin! Perfect timing for our fall season.
The St. Barnabas Mobile Burn
center trailer visited School Eight. This trailer recreates
a home environment which allows children (primarily third
graders) to identify and correct everyday household hazards
that may lead to fire and burn injuries. The Fire Safety
House also simulates
a house fire, utilizing non-toxic smoke, that allows
children to practice their home escape plan. The Fourth
Grade attended this year due to the inclement weather last
year. The students also learned "Stop, Drop, and Roll" for
The students had School Eight participated
in 'Bring Your Stuffed Animal to School Day". It was great fun and
even the Principal bought hers to school!
GARBAGE: WHAT A WASTE! At the
THIRD meeting of the Science Club, Professor Winklebottom
and Mr. Meatloaf examine WHAT IS WASTE? WHERE
DOES IT COME FROM? and WHERE DOES IT GO? With the use of
Juggling, Magical Illusions, Plate, Bowl and Garbage
Can Spinning Acts and of course, classic Vaudevillian Song
and Dance, they have students look at that phrase “Reduce,
Re-Use, Recycle,” something that kids hear all the time.
Professor Winklebottom and Mr. Meatloaf brought the School
Eight students through a show that explores exactly WHAT
DOES THAT PHRASE MEAN. The students laughed and enjoyed the
show plus came out with a real knowledge of how to reduce
waste at its source. Our students and Mr. Petryshyn helped
them with the show!Thank you to Clifton Clean Communities
for this great show!!!
