Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I trust you have seen your child’s progress report, and I thank those of you who are able to attend interviews tonight.  Please contact me if this evening is inconvenient for you and we can try to find a common time to meet.  There are still two and a half months of term one left so there’s plenty of time to rise (or fall…) before the formal report card goes home in February.  Keep checking in your child’s Reminder Binder for those assessment pieces that come home, and keeping up to date with his/her day-to-day learning will keep you in the loop with what’s going on.

In science, students are researching a chosen topic from our flight unit.  Two research periods have been provided, and one remains.  That said, students are encouraged to use some of their own time to find the necessary information to meet the needs of the project (a copy of which should be in their science duo tang).  We’ll wrap up flight with some review and a unit test next week.  Students are reminded to review their notes in preparation for this test.

Today, permission forms and health/waiver forms were sent home in preparation for our trip to Gesstwood Camp on the 28th.  The waiver form is a necessity because the camp operates on land owned by the United Church; the health form is required so that the trained leaders have a medical history to refer to ahead of doing any tasks.  Again, the trip is safe.  If it wasn’t, the Board would not endorse the program.  As for the trip itself, the students will be engaging in some team building activities and learning cooperation.  The highlight will be climbing trees with the help of ropes and safety equipment.  Students are not pressured to do the “high ropes” activity.  They will be encouraged, but ultimately get to say when they’ve had enough.  There is absolutely no pressure to perform here.  I currently have one parent attending but will need at least one more for satisfy supervision quotas.  There is no charge to a parent or guardian to attend, just your time.  Please indicate your interest on the bottom portion of the permission form.  If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me.  If you’d like to get a visual of what last year’s group experienced, go to this page on the blog.

It was a light week for Dojo points, being that I was at a workshop on Monday, and tomorrow being a PA Day.

Enjoy your weekend!
