The winners are… all of us! #sgms101

What a week!
I am the luckiest teacher alive.
Friday- my favourite day of the week generally but specifically today.
What a blast!
The students prepped for their presentation at Lakeland College, we had an outrageous Social Studies class/debate and we found out who won the local anti drug and awareness commercial contest through the Lloydminster Youth Centre. WE WON!
A huge congratulations to all the SGMS students.
Their videos were sooooo well done that for the first time they are going to air all the student video’s on NewCap television and local radio stations- everyone wins. How can we not be happy with that and honoured to receive so much air time. Wow!
Top honours and 500$ went to Troy SB and Shawn D. They will receive a giant cheque in a presentation at our school on Friday at 2:00pm. Thank you Megan and Cam from the Youth Centre for the opportunity to enhance a project and share a positive message with youth. Watching them hear the news was unlike anything I have ever experienced I think. Mrs. Barton and I are so proud of all you and and enjoy your money boys- you deserve it. You were excited, worked hard and humble about your win. To my class- the support you offered one another… You left me in awe. Luke you almost shut down the telephone lines trying to find out. Everyone- way to go and make the most out of life. Well done crew. I am already working on Shawn’s acceptance video for us all to giggle at and enjoy. Have an incredible and safe weekend guys… You make my life more interesting because you are all in it. I don’t thank you enough.
Thank you Joey H for taking the pictures of the boys below and for organizing our Notebooks for LC- when you are behind the scenes I never worry about a thing.

Shawn D and Troy SB stop celebrating for a second to get a picture.

    I agree 100%, but you and Bartski are winners as well! We are all very thankful for the program that you decided to take. Ms. Mann, no matter what, you come to school everyday with a new idea to challenge us to use technology differently. Mrs. Barton, you allow us to learn about that small things, and realize what we have in life, and how much goes on around us. You both let us sit in class and learn about the world. It’s amazing. I hope this program goes on for years, and I know that future students will have as much fun as we are!

    THANKS SO MUCH FROM THE 1ST SEMESTER 2011 SGMS STUDENTS!
