Kincardine Township-Tiverton Public School held an assembly Tuesday (June 22) to share the classrooms’ “Nobodies” who have been named and become “Somebodies”, and to celebrate the year of projects done within the school. The “Me to We” program was also highlighted.
The assembly began with each class presenting its named “Somebody,” sharing part of the scrapbook with the school, a slide show of students with their projects and culminating with everyone in the school singing the “Who Is Nobody?” theme song.
The names of the seven dolls are:
* Mrs. Kirk’s Senior Kindergarten/Grade 1 class – Sammy Somebody
* Ms. McFadden’s Grades 1/2 class – Skittles Active: Skittles after the classroom guinea pig who died on June 14. The students wanted this name because Skittles was a member of their class and Nobody became a member of their class. Skittles made the students feel happy inside and when they did their Nobody projects, that also made them feel happy inside. The ‘Active’ came from how active everyone was in completing and participating in everybody’s Nobody projects.
* Mrs. VanVeghel’s Grades 2/3 class – Rainbow; because of the colours of the rainbow representing the rainbow of jobs they completed for their projects.
* Miss Krupp’s Grades 3/4 class – Evan Savers; Evan for Environment and Savers because so many of them helped do something with their projects to help save the environment.
* Mrs. Smegal’s Grades 4/5 class – Somebody; because their Nobody had become a Somebody.
* Mrs. Tuck’s Grade 6 class – Cody Avarielle Six – They looked up the meaning of names on-line and found that Cody meant ‘helpful’ and Avarielle meant ‘woman of strength’ and then they had both a boy’s and a girl’s name and the ‘six’ was for the fact they are a Grade 6 class.
* Mrs. Weigand’s support class – Big Heart Harry; named because of all the ongoing jobs this group does in the school to help everyone – compost; milk delivery; recycling of paper, bottles, and plastic.
The “Somebodies” have been put on display in the foyer of the school until next Tuesday when the school year ends.For more information about the “Who is Nobody?” project, check the website at www.whoisnobody.com
