Food Drive and CANstruction Project

Inspired by their book study of Amanda Gorman's Change Sings, the grade 2A students have issued a challenge to all Milliken Eagles. We will be collecting canned and non-perishable food items December 1-14. On December 15, classes will be paired together and will use the food they collected to create a structure out of the cans. The group with the most impressive creation will win a pizza party! All food will be donated to the Regina Food Bank and Carmichael Outreach.

Metis Dance Day

On November 24, the Ethel Milliken students participated in a Metis Dance Day. Teachers and leaders from Kitchener Community School and students from SunTep at the University of Regina gave workshops to all of our students and they got in a good workout learning steps from the Red River Jig, and the Rabbit Dance to name a few! Shout out to Mr. Wright who provided the live fiddle music and Mrs. Desjarlais and Mrs. Korpan who organized the day. We are looking forward to practicing and showing off what we learned in the future!
