  • Let there be light! January 26, 2022- Some of our grade 1s got caught experimenting with light today. What happens if light goes through the prism? What happens when I change the light’s distance away? Or how bright it is? Or what shape the light makes? Look at my shadow! Look! You can see my blood!

  • Volcano! June 8, 2021- Miss Gard’s students showed me their excellent landform projects today. They built everything from ponds to plains, from canyons to caves, and from valleys to volcanoes.

  • Extra! Extra! Read all about it! March 13, 2021- Our grade 5s have made a newspaper, The New Bark Times. Well, news electrons and pixels, I guess. As part of their learning in the Learning Commons this term, they’ve built a wide-ranging e-book filled with spotlights on staff, student art, book reviews, news bits and more. There are comics which kids will understand better... Read more »

  • Diversity & Respect February 27, 2021- At RBE, we are lucky to be an incredibly diverse community of learners. Throughout last week, we learned together about diversity in family structure, history, and culture. We shared languages, found common interests and celebrated differences.
