Thank you to all the parents and students of the 3, 4 class who diligently brought back their permission forms for our environmental walk today! I felt so awful that I wasn’t able to get the forms out on Friday, but by the time I received the form to photocopy we were in the middle of the last block. Unfortunately I couldn’t leave the class to go and photocopy, so thank you, thank you, thank you again for getting those forms back on such short notice.
On a side note, just a reminder that there is swimming tomorrow from 1-2. We leave the schoolyard at 12:45 for any parents or guardians interested in helping walk us to the pool and watch.
Also there are some great events happening at the Heritage Centre this month, take a look:
Guest Speaker Series:
How do you follow up Hide’s amazing talk on photography in Woodland Caribou Park in September? How about a presentation by local glass artist Cheryl Wilson Smith (On October 19th) and a second presentation by the creator of the film The Grandfather Drum, Michelle Derosier (November 3rd). Cheryl will talk about her art, her inspirations, her recent success and what captures her imagination. Don’t miss your chance to learn from the experiences of an expert in very unique way of sculpting. Then in early November, prepare for the Red Lake’s first ever screening of the animated short ‘The Grandfather Drum’. The film was debuted at the Sundance Festival and has received considerable acclaim. The film delves into the deep story of a drum which had the power to cure the sick. After the film Michelle will speak about her work, her experiences and her inspirations for creating such an amazing film.
The Heritage Centre has had voting going on for the last three weeks on our website. The first vote was to determine the genre of movie. Animated won overwhelmingly, but action and comedy were a dead tie for 2nd place. As a result we decided that there will be a double feature this month. Today the second vote concluded and on October 22nd the Heritage Centre will show Ice Age: Continental Drift (Showing at 2pm) and Independence Day 2 (Showing at 7pm). The entry fee will be $1 at the door, please be punctual as we only have a capacity of 99 people. Don’t miss your chance to see some great films. As always popcorn and other snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase before and during the films. We would like to thank Goldcorp for their support. Without generous donation, funding to purchase the licencing to show films would not be possible.
Halloween Fright Night:
Last year on Halloween night, the Heritage Centre will transformed into a spooky museum filled with tricks and treats. Many kids got the chance to make their own candy apples, fish candy out of slime, find their way through the Fright Room and walk away with an awesome treat bag. This year we are doing it again! You can expect more surprises, crafts and treats. Come out in costume and join us on Saturday October 29th from 7p.m. until 9p.m.
Red Lake Art Show:
Most people know that Red Lake is a mining community. What they may not know is that it is also very much an arts community. Last year we held the first annual Red Lake Art Show. We got a great response from artists and art lovers alike. This year we have nearly doubled the number of artists involved in the show and look forward to opening the show on November 17th at 7:00 p.m. Snacks and refreshments will be available.
