Immaculate Conception Students and Staff Full of Olympic Spirit

The entire school of Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School gathered outside to show off their strong Olympic spirit!

February 24, 2010 - The students and staff of Immaculate Conception showed up to school on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 dressed from head to toe in red and white and Olympic gear. The entire group was excited to show their Olympic spirit as they gathered together for a picture showcasing the school's enthusiasm and love of the Olympics. The grade 1 / 2 class also took it one step further as they held their own “mini Olympics” including bobsledding, speedskating biathlon and curling. The class created their own bobsleds in groups with the help of some of the grade 6 students. Tania Lacroix, the grade
1 / 2 teacher explained her students' involvement with the Olympics. “Our class has been penpals with Christina Groves, one of Canada's speedskaters at the Oympics.” said Lacroix. “ She has been writing back and forth with the class and even has one of the school's banners with her at the Olympics and showed it on T.V. last Thursday. This experience has definitely had a positive impact on my students.”
Lacroix's class is also responsible every day for reporting on the Olympic results and upcoming events on the school's morning announcements. As well, there is a big bulletin board outside the class that keeps track of all of the medals that have been won by Canada. “It really is a big deal for all of the students.” states Lacroix. “They are having a lot of fun with it and are really showing their tremendous Olympic spirit!”
