Student of the Week

Rebeka gets the nod for SOTW this time!  She did an excellent job for the skipping team; was helpful to Brayden while catching him up in science; and she showed kindness in laying out everyone’s art work to make it easier to find at the carpet.  Super job, Rebeka!

Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We wrapped up our measurement unit with a test yesterday and now we’re back to number sense, particularly fractions, decimals, ratio, and percent.  In literacy, we’re engaging in a cross-curricular research task with social studies.  Students have chosen an important Canadian to research and, after consolidating said research, will design a poster highlighting that person’s life and significance.  Check in with your child to see who he/she has chosen.

VIP will come to a close next week and I’ve asked all the students to bring in their community hours sheets that were provided in the fall.  If I recall correctly, the forms need to bear signatures to validate the community hours.  Please have them sent in on Monday (if not already), thank you.

It would appear that the warm weather of the season is here.  This would be a good time to add (or replace) a water bottle for the classroom.  Warmer weather usually results in thirst and the desire to go to the fountain.  Water can be readily kept in the classroom and limits time out of the classroom.  Thanks in advance.

Students have completed their Life Is Good t-shirt designs and the 15 examples below were shipped off to Boston for the Design-A-Shirt Contest.  This means that $15 was donated to children’s charities via the LIG Kids Foundation.  Perhaps one of these designs will be a contest winner.  Which one is your favourite?
