Wednesday November 11th, our class will be participating in a ceremony at the Puslinch Community Centre to honour the men and women who have fought for our country.
Our Question of the Week is open to both grades and has to deal with Remembrance Day.
In a survey conducted last week, 1,032 Canadians were asked questions about their feelings on Remembrance Day. 70% of the people surveyed indicated they thought all levels of government should enforce a law which makes it mandatory for all Canadians to observe two minutes of silence to remember those that have died.

The question this week is what do you think? Talk with your family members and get their opinions and ideas. Did you have family members who fought in wars? Do you have family members currently in the military? Talk to your family and think about what your stance is on the issue; should it be mandatory (should the government force us) to observe two minutes of silence?
I am interested in your thoughts!
