Rankin and New Ideas

I'm lucky to be participating in the pilotting of the new Grade 11 science cirriculum (Tariuq 11). I spent 3 days in Rankin Inlet learning about it and working with the pilot group to figure out what we need to do to pilot it well. I'm looking forward to trying it out next week.

The photo is the Rankin Inukshuk at dusk.

While I was away, winter came to the north, likely to stay. We've had our first snow and its been cold, windy and rainy for most of the last week. Some beautiful skies to make me wish I had my camera with me and some nice white caps on the lake. The barges have been busy making the most of the last of the shipping season. The days of shipping are numbered as we begin having regular sub-zero temps.

The days are racing by too... I can't believe we are already into October.... report cards in just 2 weeks.

The Terry Fox Run and Literacy week have passed and now we are headed for halloween.

Anywho... I guess the last bits of excitement for me is the 3 boxes of food mail I recieved yesterday.... Yeah vegetables :D... but I'd best get back to work... oh and socks... I finally finished and photographed the rainbow ones and I've gotten a fair bit done one a heavy woolen pair.
