Ms. Sullivan Grade 2 Class reports: "We are having a freezing cold and very snowy winter! So far this year we had temperatures as cold as -40C with the wind chill and regular temperatures of -32C. There have been lots of days that it was just too cold to go out and play at recess. The snow is piling up and the hills are really huge! They are great for climbing and sliding on. We had two big storms in February that were just days apart. We got about 70cm of snow! The tulip garden we planted at school had 50cm of snow on it! We don’t think we will see the robins until later in April. It would be cold for them and hard to find food. We think we will hear them sing at the end of April."

When do YOU think we'll see our first robin?
