Going the Distance in Distance Learning

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 13, 2021 5:35:00 PM

We are now in the second week of our Junior School Distance Learning (DL) program, and there is no question that everyone is missing the physical connectedness of being together on campus.  Staying safe and protecting those around us remain our shared priorities. Despite the reputation of mental malaise associated with universal virtual learning, I commend our students and teachers for responding to the challenge in true “Highlander” form.

Big Wins at Regional Science Fair

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 25, 2021 7:41:00 PM

After a very successful School science fair, a number of our students were chosen to represent KES at the Regional level.  This year’s fair was a little different due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Each student created a 5-7 minute video presentation of their board to the judges, and uploaded this video and their research papers to the Regional website.  The results are in and I’m very excited to share with you how well our students have done!

The 8B Times

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 23, 2021 1:26:00 PM

The following newspaper you are about to read is individually and collectively created by my Grade 8 English class. Recently, we finished learning about different speech writing techniques and types. While speeches are delivered by the presenter themselves (whether that be verbally or through sign), it is important to remember how a speech presents itself as a written page; to help students remember this, we compiled our speeches into a newspaper for others to read. Students selected their own topic and style while being challenged to add in a few specific requirements like interviewing and using power words.

Dalhousie Math Circles - Exploding Dots

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 20, 2021 7:00:00 AM

On Wednesday, March 31st, Dalhousie University hosted its latest virtual Math Circles evening.  Dr. Asmita Sodhi (Dalhousie Mathematics Department) led the seminar, providing interactive opportunities and the mathematical motivation to make the event a great success.  The topic itself, Exploding Dots, had our curiosity piqued, and the ensuing mathematical connection did not disappoint. The hour-long presentation was an uplifting mathematical experience.  Time itself seemed to “explode”.  First, participants were introduced to a ”2 to 1” exploding dot machine, where they introduced numbers into the furthermost right block of a series of attached boxes, and watched as pairs of dots exploded into one dot in the adjacent box to the left.  This pattern continued in adjacent boxes until participants discovered that they were actually expressing numbers in base 2, or binary form.

The 254 Starts Spring Training

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 7, 2021 1:28:00 PM

The winter white, frost and freezing rain are now behind us.  The Corps is back on Jakeman Field as the spring is upon us.  The 254 is back in action.  We immediately launched into some intensive drill training to rid ourselves of the rust of winter.  Mistakes were made all around and then the drills kicked in and the Corps stood up and marched.  Of course, the ceremonial season is upon us, so it was time to learn a new movement.
