Hello March!

Looking forward to blue skies and sunshine? March brings with it the promise of gardening and warm(er), sunny days, as Earth turns its frostbitten cheek to winter and springs forth from the vernal equinox. Give a nod to spring by planting a flower, playing with a puppy and taking a walk in the park – but do be sure to carry an umbrella.

Welcome to (almost) Spring! Bring it!

March Break is right around the corner - and that means sunny, warm days are ahead. Let’s look to Spring as the BEST time to renew and rejoice in the sunshine that is sure to come! Just enjoy your up and coming break!

Of course, you already know that everything I think, know, and believe, is that much of the world is based on how we use ways to integrate learning into our curriculum, ourselves, our lives, and eventually our souls. So below, I am offering you different ways to enjoy and embrace Spring. Share these with your school's classroom teachers, or your students to further explore at home. Any age can be part of these activities. Use parts or sections or the whole enchilada! Any subject can be integrated into them. Be tame, be careful, or go wild! You decide!

March Break 2024 is full of things to do in Hamilton, Halton, Niagara and the Waterloo Region. Check out this loaded events calendar below and put together a long list of March Break activities and fun things you can do with the kids this week (or anytime).

March Break is Coming


Countdown till Spring!

Goodbye, Winter!
Spring is in the air.
Flowers are in bloom.
You see colours everywhere.
Birds build their nest
In branches way up high.
But out my window, that loud bird
Woke me up again...sigh!

March Mindfulness & Happiness

World Happiness Day is March 20th 2024. At this time of uncertainty and conflict, this year’s ‘Happier Together’ theme reminds us that lasting happiness comes from feeling connected to others and being part of something bigger.

Mindfulness helps us respond more wisely, especially in difficult times. So let's pause, breathe and choose to live mindfully this month. By cultivating inner peace we can contribute to peace in the world around us too.
