Mrs. Jackson, our new PE teacher, is all smiles thanks to our local Canadian Tire Store that generously donated a basket of playground balls and equipment to our school!
Last week the Vancouver Aquarium AquaVan visited IDES to present "Arctic Explorations". With dynamic teachers, live marine invertebrates and artifacts to investigate there was a lot of learning going on! Thank you to TECK COAL for sponsoring this program.
Avery and Helen thought a Buddy Bench was just what we needed at IDES. These girls fundraised over the summer and raised $2720 dollars (with donations still coming in) to purchase two Buddy Benches for our school.
Lucky students in Mrs. Sutherland's class received some homemade jam as a welcome back to school gift!
