Your News... In Real-Time!
At Bruce Middle School we've decided to go paperless with our newsletter.
There are two advantages to this:
- The saving of paper is a savings in costs and more importantly another step in our ongoing commitment to sustainability.
- By offering news in this format, we can now provide our community with real-time news as it happens, instead of waiting until the end of the month to send out information.

The Science Department will be sending projects on to the Divisional Fair at George Waters/St. James Collegiate on April 8. Students in Grades 7-12 will be chosen to represent St. James Assiniboia at the Canada Wide Science in Fredericton NB from May 9 -16.
*Spaghetti Bridge Building Competition: Students can compete in one or both challenges!
A) Strength competition: students are allowed up to 350 grams of uncooked spaghetti and white glue and will compete with other students from across the province to see who has the strongest bridge/truss!
NEW: parents can create and enter their own bridges!
B) Design competition: students are allowed to use any type of pasta to build a bridge up to 1.4 kg in mass. Why not add some paint to make your creation beautiful. More information on the bridge competitions can be found at http://www.apegm.mb.ca/SpaghettiBridge.html

Senior High Open Houses
The Winter Concert showcases the incredible progress each band and choir has made since September. It is very important that ALL students participate. Make sure that if you have any Wednesday evening commitments that you inform your coach/instructor/teacher ahead of time that you will be missing to attend this concert. Also, we are looking for parents willing to supervise students in the warm-up rooms. If you are available, please let Mrs. Johnson know (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Students saw their idea transform from a simple sketch and design plan to a 3-dimensional ready-to-play arcade game. The rest of the Bruce student body and staff as well as our friends at Athlone were invited to come and enjoy our day of play. Students had a great time hosting this event and were proud to show off their creations!
A Global Day of Play is held each year with the goal of engaging 1 million children all over the world in creative play. To learn more about how this event came to be and the videos that inspired us, check out cainesarcade.com/cardboardchallenge to read more.
