Aqamnik Elementary School

January 18, 2012

Cranbrook Council

Aqamnik Elementary School students, David Walker and Nevada Joseph were asked to join Chief Cheryl Casimer at the swearing in of Cranbrook Mayor and Council.

Aqamnik Elementary School currently have forty students attending the school this year from Grades K-7. The teachers have been focussing on literacy and numeracy using new programs purchased in the last year and the students continue to learn and grow by leaps and bounds!

The students spent the first part of the year visiting the College of the Rockies gymnasium to learn ball skills and cooperative play. They have participated in many field trips since the fall including learning about forestry and hunting, seeing a Robert Munch play at Fort Steele and our K/1 class explored the pumpkin patch at Fort Steele and were able to each choose a pumpkin to take home to their families.

Cranbrook Council

As the Christmas holidays approached a few students were chosen to record a radio ad for our school and showcased their emerging Ktunaxa language skills to the community. The students invited their families to the school to participate in the second annual Christmas Activity night and enjoyed a fun relaxed evening playing Bingo and making homemade Christmas cards.

Two of our Senior Students, David Walker and Nevada Joseph were asked to attend the Cranbrook Mayoral Inauguration. They proudly represented our school and community by reciting the school prayer for this important event.

In January the students started Swimming lessons at the Kimberley Aquatic Center and are all eager to get back to learning after a nice relaxing holiday.
