Preparations for this year’s spring production have begun. King David will be performing Ken Ludwig’s adaptation of the classic adventure tale written by Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island. The cast is made up of enthusiastic actors from Grades 8 through 12.  

“It’s a lot of work but it’s so much fun and so rewarding when it all comes together” says Grade 10 student Matty, who is the lead in the play. 
To help us make this the best play ever we are asking that anyone who has old tables, chairs, lumber or bed sheets (white or beige), to please donate them to the production. We are also in need of a volunteer with sewing skills and time to spare (please contact Ms. Ralph

Thanks also to PAC for donating the fantastic Treasure Island cast t-shirts. They look great!

Making Pizza to Learn French!

Mitchell, Shea, Inbar, Ya’el and Tania chop vegetables
This week, Ms. Walker’s Grade 8 French class utilized the Foods room to make kosher pizza. This activity helped us to learn more in our French foods unit. We had two Grade 11 Foods students help us with the pizza making. A huge thank you to Ms. Watson, Max and Joshua who made this possible!

We had peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese and pineapple to put onto our pizza. Once Ms. Walker divided the class into four groups, we started the process. We practiced the four steps that we  learned in class.

1.    Couper les légumes (cut the vegetables)
2.    Rouler la pâte (roll the dough)
3.    Garnir la pizza (garnish the pizza with cheese
       and vegetables)
4.    Mettre la pizza au four (put the pizza in the oven)

When all of our pizzas were done, they all looked different and delicious and then it was time to eat!
