I will post a schedule of when we are to do certain sections. It will be under the Extra Extra page.
If you would like to see a video of them square dancing, please ask, and i can email it to you. It is not a long video as i did not have too much memory on my Iphone. Sorry.
Next week we start our PBL, Socials project and the first of the FSA testing. It will be a busy few weeks.
Friday is our last day of Skiing up at Silver Star :( Please inform me if there are any changes.
That's all folks... ill add more if something comes up.
Enjoy your weekend.
We will need to use headphones during certain times through the week, so if you could please send your child with a pair of headphones, that would be wonderful.
An email was sent out regarding skiing. This will be the same information for the next 2 times. Please drop off your child on time. The drop off time is @ 7:30am and the bus will leave at 7:45am SHARP! We cannot wait for latecomers.
This week we have a math quiz on Tuesday and a spelling quiz on Wednesday.
We will be writing pen pal letters to the grade 4 students from the Orphanage in India where our KCS high-school students will be visiting. Ask your student who they wrote to. :)
We are learning about healthy eating in Health and Career. How to choose a food from each food group, and how much servings they should have from each food group. It would be wonderful if you could include your child when you pack their lunches so they can have a hands on experience. :)
This Thursday we will have a Western Spirit day marking the end of our square dancing experience. Plaid, jeans, western boots, handkerchiefs, cowgirl and cowboy hats, etc... Google is a good tool for ideas:)

Happy New Year parents!
Our first 4 days went by pretty fast. Students had a little hard time adjusting this week, and are a bit tired most days towards the end. We just have to get into the swing of things!
A few things from this week and a few for next:
Students will no longer be switching for math class. Mr. Hein decided it would be more feasable for both myself and Mr. Fell to keep our kids; easier to change the schedule and add more language arts classes. So from this week, till the end of the month, all students will have me as thier math teacher.
This week and for two more weeks we will be doing square dancing on Tuesday's and Thursday's. At the third week, parents will be welcome to view a performance by the grade 4's. More information will be available either next week or the week afterwards.
Friday skiiing days commence next week. On January 13th, 20th and 27th we will be heading up to Silver Star. There will be no school or classes on those days. If you did not sign your child up, or have chosen to not send them on those days, please let myself and the office know as well.
In Socials, students have a handout due at the end of class on Monday. It is called "European vs First nations way of life"
Also on Monday, students will have an assessment on thier skills of badminton. Please make sure they have the appropriate gym strip for that week. Thanks.
