On February 13th, 2018, students, staff and parents at Almadina attended the Respect Virtue Assembly. The Virtue Stars welcomed everyone with an energizing Respect introduction. Then Mrs. Chambers’ Grade 3 class and Mrs. Mahmood’s ECS class performed their upbeat song, “Check It Out- It’s All About Respect.” After, Mrs. Bhaidani’s Grade 2 class and Mrs. Chambers’ class gave a moving performance with their skit on Stolen Words. Mrs. Yanofsky’s Grade 1 class and Mrs. Bhaidani’s class also drummed and sang the beautiful song “My Paddle’s Keen and Bright” while displaying beautiful First Nations art work. Later, Mrs. Dassouki’s Grade 2 class sang and amazing song about Respect. Finally, Mr. Kadri’s Arabic class sang an informative song about Respecting the Traffic Lights to finish off the assembly.
