What do we want out of homework? What does it teach our kids, and at what cost?
Let's start with some references:
The French-Focused Class is a grade 3/4 pilot program taught by Allison Wood and Mary Sylvester which offers 80 minutes per day of French (double the French instruction time of Core French, but less than French Immersion). If this pilot program is successful, the goal is for this class to evolve into a program for grades 3 to 6. The Alternative Program philosophy continues to be in the very fabric of our children's learning with innovative educational strategies, integrated curriculum, an educational experience that is cooperative and child-centred, and a multi-age class setting with significant parental involvement.

From September 22nd's Ottawa Citizen article,"A garden by children for all to enjoy" by Katie Holtz.
A snippet from the article:
The busy intersection at Main and Clegg streets is an unlikely spot for Ottawa's first Children's Garden, but by lunchtime today, this former small city park will have been transformed into a Community Children's Garden.
At 9 a.m., 12 students from Lady Evelyn Alternative School were to lead more than 100 volunteers, including the CEOs of some of Canada's biggest companies, such as The Home Depot and UPS Canada, directing them as they build fences, lay pathways, construct an amphitheatre and dig flower beds.
The first school council meeting of the year will be on Monday, September 22nd from 7 to 9 pm (in the staff room on the 3rd floor). Along with our regular business, we will be discussing our budget for the coming year.
All parents/guardians are welcome to attend.

The kids at Lady Evelyn (with a bit of help from teachers, parents and the Health and Ev\nvironment Committee) started a couple of gardening projects last spring:
Their work has certainly flourished. More pictures can be found here.
Update: The citizen has posted an article on the garden, including the attached picture.
