HIllcrest Elementary ‘s Alison van Wermeskerken sent her Grade 6/7 class out to make snowmen Monday, challenging them to make the biggest one they could, and the boys (pictured) immediately banded together and created this tall guy.

The girls made a snowman too, and buried each other in the snow, and made snow angels.

‘There are only so many snows in a person’s childhood, so I felt we needed to take advantage of the beautiful white gift we were given,’ she told The Reporter.

The day's learning intention? she added, "Life is good!"
