Newsletter #24

March 1st Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Happy weekend Everyone!
As most of you are aware, we have had a lot of ongoing sickness in the class. It is normal for this time of year but please be sure to keep your child home if they are very unwell. Also, we must have a bunch of growth spurts going on as many of the kids are polishing off all of their food and needing more. We do have some food for those in need but perhaps ask your child if they need a bigger lunch.

Here are the notes about the week:

On Monday the class practiced printing, went to the library and played badminton in gym. Later we erupted the volcano - big excitement - and enjoyed an outside snack and story (picnic). We also shared our story drawings with big buddy class.

Tuesday the class started learning about syllables in our Oral Language Groups and did great. We continue to work on target practice in the gym and had our Roots of Empathy class. Everyone enjoyed creating some dinosaur art with Ms. Klare.

Wednesday was Pink Shirt Day. It was great to see all the bright pink shirts around the school in support of anti-bullying. The class practiced making addition equations and got a little messy making letter art.  

Thursday Mrs. Van Riel was home sick. Ms. Lee was in as the teacher. The kids had free choice in gym, played a game using the beginning sound of things and went to Whole School Meeting and Music.  

*Reminder: 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:
March 8 Early dismissal for Student Led Conferences
March 16 First day of Spring Break
April 3 School back in session
