Newsletter #4

September 28th Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Hello Everyone!

What a busy week! Here are some highlights:

On Monday the class learned more about the letter ‘Aa’, visited the library and signed out books to take home. Please be sure to return these books by Monday each week so that your child can sign out a new one.

Tuesday was Orange Shirt Day. It was wonderful seeing all the bright signs of support around the school all day. We also worked in our journals, explored different kinds of lines and spent time in the forest.

Wednesday we practiced our reading, learned more about math patterns and welcomed our First Nations elder, Quentin Harris, into the class to share a lesson on honour.

On Thursday the class spent time learning how to play cooperatively with a partner in the gym, studied the letters in their names, and created beautiful fall inspired art in the class and in nature.

We are all really enjoying the photo board presentations and love looking at all the pictures. Next week we will also start regular show and tell. The schedule for this is as follows:

Mondays: Ava, Cruiz and David
Tuesdays: Daynin, Eli, Elizabeth and Emma
Wednesdays: Franky, Jude and Mina
Thursdays: Oliver, Roscoe and Sylvio

Please only send ONE item with your child, as we need to make sure there is time for everyone to have a turn sharing. We also suggest that items brought in next week start with the letter B.

We are still looking for a Class Rep for our class. This is a parent who would be willing to call other parents about PAC matters and special events. If you would be willing to take this on please let us know.

Next Thursday is our Fall Garden Harvest Feast! Students are asked to bring a bowl and spoon with their lunch snacks next Thursday because we do not have enough dishes for all of the classes. There will be applesauce, crumble and soup. If you are free to come in on Wednesday morning (10:30am-11:30am) to help the class make the applesauce please let us know as soon as possible.

Here are some important dates coming up in October:
October 5- Garden Harvest Lunch
October 9- Thanksgiving- schools closed
October 13- School in session
October 24- Photo day
October 26- PAC movie night

Please remember to fill out the criminal record check (if you haven’t already) if you are thinking about volunteering your time in class or on field-trips. To access the online request go to: Access Code: DNW8SBGDPQ Thank you!

Have a great weekend!
