Benana Lake Clarification

May 26th, 2017

I realize now that some of the students got a permission slip for Benana Lake and some students received an empty food form. I will resend the permission slip today and I will send home a food request form closer to the date of our BBQ. Sorry about the inconvenience! I’m not sure how that happened!

Final Scholastic Book Order

May 24th, 2017

In the next day or so, I will be sending home the last two Scholastic Book order forms. I will be placing the final order of the school year on Friday, June 9th. This time – line should give us enough time for the books to get here before the year ends!I can’t believe the year is coming to a close this quickly! If you would like to order some books for summer reading, now is the time!

Spring Sing

May 24th, 2017

Monday, May 29th at 7pm, we will host our annual Spring Sing. The students have been working hard all year and are excited to present to you a snap shot of our Music programme.

Students should wear jeans on the bottom and a black or white t shirt or a combination of black/white. Please no large logos. A uniform shirt is absolutely acceptable if that is easiest for you. Black pants are also an option if jeans do not work for you. The students can wear any type of shoes.

Students should arrive at their classrooms by 6:40 to line up and then be seated with their classes.

Movie Reward

May 17th, 2017

The Grade 1 class has been working on their behaviour and I am seeing that they are trying and we have had a relatively calm week considering that today was Super Hero Dress up! I would like to reward them with a Veggie Tale movie on Friday. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to send along some popcorn?

Full Dress Uniform

May 17th, 2017

There will be no more Full Dress Uniform required for the rest of the year! We are anticipating the arrival of warmer weather!

Double Letter Phonograms

May 15th, 2017

We have ben working really hard on our advanced phonograms. The students are doing a pretty good job of seeing the sound and then saying it. Many of the students are finding it challenging to move to the next step which is to hear the sound and then print it. On Friday, we did a double letter phonogram quiz and I was mildly surprised at how many of the children struggled with the task. My expectation was around 15/20 give or take. I have made a photocopy of the quizzes to send home so that you can see how your child is doing. I would really appreciate some home practice to support our classroom learning. I have also created a small group of students who will be receiving pull out support. If you have any questions, feel free to pop in and chat with me.
