Goose Bay has begun a cool program this year, called "Sci-Fi Fridays"! Principal Spatz has added a Science,Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) class as the new “special" alongside physical education. Josie Schubert, a dynamic and creative educator, and Nancy Blake, PE Teacher, have joined forces on Fridays to teach kids with more movement and more instruction. Nice work Goose Bay!
