Student of the Week

With such a positive start to the year, it’s getting harder and harder to choose each week!  This time around, it’s Hannah!  Hannah earned the most Class Dojo points last week (17) and she shows her independence routinely in class when her work is finished.  Whether it’s reading independently or finishing off her art work, she can always find something to occupy her time when she’s done early.  Great work, Hannah!

Leave your congratulatory messages for Hannah here.

Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We had another wonderful week!  I’d have to say in 18 years of teaching, this has been one of the most pleasant starts to a school year.  I’m very pleased with how things have gone so far.

We did some discussion about Terry Fox ahead of this week’s assembly and walk.  He’s certainly the embodiment of growth mindset, a topic that is a school focus for EPS.  Thank you to those families who sent in donations to help Terry’s cause.  We collected $30 from 6M, an amount that I matched personally for a total of $60.  Well done, 6M!

Today, students were given their accounts to Prodigy Math.  This is a math centred, web-based game that is free to play.  I customize the questions to reflect what we are doing in math at the time and it’s a fun way to reinforce those math skills.  Your child’s login and password should be written inside the agenda.  Although we will be using it periodically in class, playing at home is encouraged.

Our Meet the Teacher Night is scheduled for Thursday from 4:30-6:30pm.  I look forward to meeting with you all then.

Happy Autumnal Equinox!
