Newsletter #35

May 31st Edition of
The K/1 Class News

Hi everyone, here is our last newsletter of the month.

Monday Ms. Klare was away. The class worked on printing the letter ‘Vv’, went to the library (all books due back next week) and searched for shapes in nature. 

On Tuesday we had our class and whole school photos taken. The kids were all great about the interruption to our regular schedule. Later we had Charlotte, from the Salt Spring Island Conservancy, come to do a pre-trip activity. The kids are all excited about our trip to Duck Creek next week. If you haven’t already sent back the permission slip, it must be in by Monday.

Wednesday we were visited by some of the students from Pender Island School, who put on a fantastic play about caring for our environment. They reminded us about how important it is to Reduce what we consume, Reuse what we can, Recycle our waste, Rethink our needs and Refuse to take excess (bags, trays etc.). The kids all loved the show and hopefully absorbed some of this valuable information. Later we studied the life cycle of the butterfly and then went outside. 

On Thursday the kids wrote about what they want to be when they grow up and enjoyed a magic show! The Magician was very good and the kids all had a good laugh. In the afternoon they had centres time, cleaned up the class and played in the forest. We are trying to send extra clothes and belongings home now as the end of the year is near.

**Reminder** We will be going on a field trip to Duck Creek on June 6th. The trip is organized by the Salt Spring Conservancy and is always a great day of learning and adventure. Also, please be sure to have your child arrive at school on time on this day, as we will be getting organized to leave right away.
