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.

A big thank-you to all students who participated as well as the staff and Mrs. Smitke for all of the time put in to organize this great event! So much fun was had by all!
Students participated in a virtual bingo, taking pictures to match various key words and themes in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They explored the museum and participated in a guided tour to learn about how Canadians have been involved in the fight for universal human rights and explored the main themes of the Museum. Students had a chance to tour many of the galleries and interesting artifacts and ended the tour to the Tower of Hope.
Students will be building a bulletin board display in the hallways of Bruce Middle School to share what they learned with the rest of our students.
The grade 7s ended off their term and put their creativity skills to the test by participating in a golf course building challenge. They had 30 minutes to design a mini-golf hole that could be built with supplies gathered around the school and given a new purpose. Then, they had 30 minutes to construct their hole, set the par, and test their part of the course. And of course, we had 30 minutes to PLAY and test each other's designs in our very own Bruce Middle School Mini-Golf course.

One at a time please! The students learned the history of talking sticks and what they are used for. After venturing out to find the perfect sticks, each student made a talking stick of their own using their stick, leather, beads, and feathers! A special large talking stick was made for our room and will come in handy when sharing!

Portfolios & Paninis Evening!
Using the school issued iPads, students engaged their parents in a collection of artifacts (photos, video, audio, web-based resources) that represent their learning. Students presented these artifacts on their devices, reflected on why they are proud of their learning and identified areas that require improvement.
Students also led their parents through a series of live performance tasks. Some of which were iPad based and others which were hands-on, including numeracy games and making Panini's as part of our foods program.
It was a wonderful evening highlighting the tech-infused learning that goes on in our classrooms at Bruce Middle School!
