SKATING THIS THURSDAY: we are joining Mrs. Mayoh' class to walk to Brock Arena on Thursday. We will leave after attendance in the afternoon. Parent helpers are more than welcome to help transport equipment, tie skates, ref hockey, skate with the kids, etc. Several of the kids have
volunteered several of their parents already! See you at school Thursday afternoon if you can make it.
Gr. 5 students have a French test this week.
Preparations are starting for our Christmas concert. We are doing a musical/play and rehearsals will start in the next couple of weeks.
IF I DO NOT HAVE AN EMAIL ADDY FOR YOU, PLEASE SEND ME A QUICK EMAIL SO I CAN ADD YOU TO MY CONTACT LIST.
Finally, thank you so much to all the families who shared part of your family history last week. I have never had such a successful unit on Remembrance Day and I know it is because kids were able to make connections to their own family history. In our class we write every day and make connections between the topic and the kids themselves. The kids writing has been powerful. I was also extremely impressed by the kids behaviour and participation at the assembly last week. In our class we are always making.
A notice for skating should have made it home today. It needs to be signed and returned by Wed.
Enjoy the rest of the week. Cheers. SS:)
