Our grade 8 students were surprised when they found out they would be travelling to Ottawa for We Day, courtesy of West Jet. They will be travelling to the airport in the next few days to have a tour and see the inner working of this facility in preparation for their trip.
They also had an opportunity to travel to the Saskatchewan Science Centre and dissect fetal pigs. This was the final wrap up to our Cells and Body Systems Science unit.

Our grade six class started their week making electrical cords with Danny Croft and his team from Croft electric. They learned how to strip wire as well as attach the plugs to the end of the cord. This hands-on activity wraps up the electricity unit in science.
High School Students
Many of the MTMS students out in high school have come back to visit. Whether it is to work on homework, for guidance or just to have a chat, we are always so happy to see them. It is amazing to see all of their accomplishments, and we know they will continue to be successful.
