Newsletter #23

February 22nd Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Hi Everyone!
Here are some highlights from our week:

On Monday the class worked hard on their printing. They also had fun making mandalas with their big buddies. We took the activity outside later and made natural mandalas. The kids enjoyed learning about growing patterns.

Tuesday the class started learning about compound words in our Oral Language Groups. We also started a kindness challenge! Our goal is to record 100 acts of kindness on our class kindness tree. Later, we made shapes out of natural objects outside.

On Wednesday Mrs. Van Riel was away at a Union meeting. The class learned more about shapes, played some new games in gym and worked on building sentences. Later the kids made the letters of the alphabet in nature. The start of snow was exciting!

Thursday was a beautiful snowy day. The class worked on their reading, had free choice in gym and David and Ava read the sentences they created to the school at Whole School Meeting. Well done you two! Later the class went to Music and made little books about the four seasons.

March 8th will be an early dismissal day for the Student Led Conferences. This is a mandatory activity as it is considered your child’s report card. If you cannot make it on the 8th we will reschedule. Buses will run as usual and will leave the school at 11:30am. Please sign up for a meeting slot on the Google doc shared with you. If you have trouble using the Google doc, you can request a time and we can fill it in for you. Remember to arrive 15-20 minutes before your meeting time to go through the learning stations with your child.

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is now open! If you know of anyone with a child turning five this year, please advise them to see Tania in the office to register for Kindergarten.

Important dates to remember:
February 28 Pink Shirt Day
March 8 Early dismissal for Student Led Conferences
March 16 First day of Spring Break
