Thanksgiving By Clare
Thanksgiving is important to me because it is a time to gather with friends and give thanks for what we have, not what we don't have. Although most families celebrate Thanksgiving, everyone celebrates in a different way or at a different time. My family celebrates by going over to our friends house and eating turkey and chocolate cake.

Election Day at BES

Election Day at BES By Talia
Today, Banff is having an municipal election. Grade 6 from BES is putting together the student vote for this year gr 4,5,6 and 7. My group is campaigning for Wade Rettie. Each group is campaigning for a different candidate. First we had to search up information on what our candidate wants to do if they gets elected. Then we had created a public service announcement to share with BES. It was a bit challenging because there was not a lot of information on our candidate.  Learning about the election is important because if we need to be responsible citizens and vote.

BES Terry Fox Run

BES Terry Fox Run By Kayden
Terry Fox is a Canadian boy, he attempted to run across Canada. He died June 28, 1981. He ran to raise money for cancer research. The Terry Fox run is important because it raises money for people like Terry, who have cancer. BES did a Terry Fox run and everyone brought a toonie for Terry. Some of the kids ran in the high school field and some ran to the Bow Falls and back. There was lots of kids encouraging littler kids and helping people who need it. Overall, it was a great day for a great cause!
