🌟 A Slightly Different Note Today 🌟

Today, I'm stepping slightly outside our usual discussions on education to address a topic that, while not directly related to our classrooms, deeply impacts the community values we strive to embody at Pear Tree School.

It's an important conversation that I believe deserves our attention and reflection.

Street harassment—a pervasive issue that shadows many corners of our daily lives—often goes unchallenged, hidden beneath the veil of societal norms and personal fears.

While this might seem distant from our educational endeavors, the underlying principles of empathy, courage, and community action align closely with what we stand for.

Through sharing this piece, "When Silence Speaks Volumes: The Real Reason Behind Our Inaction in Street Harassment," I hope to shed light on the power of individual and collective action in the face of injustice. It's a testament to the values we aim to instill in our students: standing up for what's right, even when it's not easy, and supporting each other in creating a safer, more compassionate world.

Let's dive into this conversation together, reflecting on how we can extend the principles we cherish within educational settings to the broader societal challenges we face.

Your thoughts and insights are as always, highly valued and welcomed.

As part of our Forest Animals theme, we went to Stanley Park to do a garbage clean up between Lost Lagoon and Second Beach. 🌲🌍 The amount of garbage we found in that small stretch of the park was incredible and very disappointing. ☹️ Thank you for helping, Communities 4 and 5! @lsf_lst #environmentalstewardship #everydayisearthday #forests #stanleypark #litter #garbage #peartreeedu #dontlitter #yvr

Check out these masterpieces from three of our Kindergarten and Grade 1 student – stunning 3D representations of the Musqueam Longhouse, inspired by our enriching field trip to the Museum of Anthropology at UBC (@moa_ubc)! 🎨🏡

Why do these drawings turn heads?

Just as Pear Tree School isn't 'just another school', each of these pictures isn't just another picture; each is a portal into the advanced world of spatial 3D understanding, typically explored by much older students! This is the Pear Tree difference: fostering a vibrant environment where young minds like these leap into learning with both feet, mastering skills that set them leagues ahead. 🧠💡

At Pear Tree School, 'amazing' is our baseline. Our students don’t just learn; they innovate, they lead, they excel. And they start young. 🌟

From day 1, our students are the architects of their own education, constructing knowledge that stands tall and proud – much like the longhouses they so brilliantly bring to life on paper.

Don’t just take our word for it. See the magic for yourself.👇
