A few times per year we have Extended Activity Weeks where we follow a different schedule.
First Extended Activity Week - End of October
During Extended Activity Week you get to participate in all kinds of fun workshops led by parent volunteers, teachers, student teachers and even students. Workshops have included yoga, activist button making, sewing, cartooning and cinnamon bun making. We even bake cookies for the Halloween dance. Another great thing about Extended Activity Week is that it allows you time to finish your work if you're falling behind. In fact, you can’t participate in the fun activities until you’ve caught up on all your work. And if you need help finishing, well, the teachers are all there to support you and give you an extra push to get it all done. This keeps anyone from falling too far behind.
Winterfeast Prep Week - December
Our second Extended Activity week is to prepare for our Winter Concert. We spend the week fine-tuning our performances, having choir rehearsals, and practising with our rock bands. There are also work periods and a few fun workshops.
Community Service Week - April (Bi-annually)
During Community Service Week students at City View go to help out at places like women’s shelters, daycares and refugee support centers. For each different place there is a mixed group of 7s and 8s that you go with. It’s a really eye opening experience. When Community Service week is over, many students wish that it could be longer. They love helping out. One cool thing is that it’s a great way to network and you could end up volunteering at the organization in the future.
Drama Week - May
During Drama Week we do a special drama showcase that we prepare and rehearse in Language Arts and Drama classes. Check out the flyers to see some Drama Week productions in past years.
