This week was another short one, and we welcome another one next week as well. I hope everyone had a great long thanksgiving. :) I know i enjoyed spending time with family and relaxing for a full day afterwards.
This week we had a visit to the McMillan Farms and we had great weather! It was so great to see how happy and excited all the students were. I sure learned alot during my time there. As many times as I've gone before, this was the first time i learned about the past of the Farm. One cool fact was that the McMillan's have owned the farm since the 1950's. WOW!
Students will have a chance to write a response of what they saw and learned while they were there in connection with how the settlers might have lived when they came over to Canada for the first time. Photos are on the website under "photos"
Please remember when you are going to take your child early from school, wether it be 10 min or 2hours, I would really appreciate being informed. Also please remember to sign your child out from the office before leaving the building.
We have Physical Education three times during the week, and DPA twice. Having appropriate gym strip is part of your child's grade. I choose random days to do a gym strip checks and students are required to have a different shirt and shorts/pants then what they are wearing to school that day. It is worth 10% of their grade. Please remember to have your child bring their gym strip home on Fridays to have the clothing washed, and returned for Monday. Thank you.
This week for math students had a chance to work on their new in-class math assignments. Most students chose to adopt their animal from the SPCA shelter:) So awesome! I am also planning on adopting a small dog once I find the right fit. If students were not able to finish their math homework, they should have completed Pages 38-40, and for Mr. Fell's class, pages 39-41.
Coming up this week we have hot dog day on Monday, this only applies to those individuals who purchased them through our hot-lunch program.
On Wednesday, our classroom is leading worship for chapel. Parents are always welcome to come and videotape and support their child and classroom friends. We will be practicing lots on Monday and Tuesday.
Also, on Monday, we will be having our spelling test for the words we have been practicing. Students will be given a word and they have to place it into a complete sentence using conjunction and juicy words. The words are on my website, under Extra! Extra!
Please remember to sign your students "Friday Letter" which outlined all the above written points, as well, there is a consent form for our Club Penguin field trip, It is due back MONDAY October 17th. On Wednesday October 26th we are taking the city bus to club penguin and then walk over to Parkinsons Recreational Centre for a swim and then back to the school for 3:00pm. Early pick-ups will not be available for this day.
