Student Leadership – Guitar Club – Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Student Leadership – Guitar Club – Pumpkin Soup Recipe

Another busy week for Division 3 students!  There are many things I’ve been wanting to share with you since the last post…


1. Student Leadership

We Day (event in which some of our Student Leaders participated in a few weeks ago) will be aired on CTV this evening at 7:00pm.  I was there and it was magical!  If you can’t get it on tv this evening you can also watch it all by clicking on this link.


Even if your child is not enrolled in the Student Leadership program he/she will have a chance to participate and/or help throughout the year.  So far students from Division 3 are helping out with the school juice box recycling program.  We have also started working with both Grade 4 classes, doing some math games and reading aloud.


2. Guitar Club

The guitar club will take place on Fridays at lunch time.  All levels welcome.  The only requisite is that all participants must bring their own guitar for that period.  Acoustic guitars only please.


3. Pumpkin Soup Recipe

To celebrate Halloween, we made (and ate!) pumpkin soup in class.  Many students loved it and wanted me to share the recipe on this blog.

Gingered Pumpkin Soup

2 cups pumpkin
3 cups chicken broth (I used vegetable broth)
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup light cream
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium apple, diced
1 teaspoon ground ginger (I used fresh ginger)

salt to taste


Melt butter in a saucepan.  Sauté onion, apple and ginger until tender.  Stir in pumpkin and broth.  Remove from heat.  Process or blend until smooth.  Serve with a drizzle of cream or if feeling brave, add cream to the entire batch before serving. 

I leave you with a picture of a fun project with did in class.  Unfortunately I did not take any picture of it so the picture you see was taken from another blog where I got the idea.

Happy Halloween!
