A rainy week has passed. The students enjoyed the opportunity to play inside with their own small toy brought from home, but they were definitely excited to get back to our new playground on Friday afternoon.
Now that the weather has changed, I have a few reminders. First, we will be playing outside on most days, so please make sure your child is dressed appropriately with a jacket, hat, mitts/gloves and rain/snow boots when needed. Secondly, some children do not yet have a complete change of clothes at school. Sometimes, an accident might happen (such as falling into a puddle). When as accident happens, it is much more convenient for your child to change quickly and return to class. If I need to make a phone call to you, at work or home, your child will need to sit in wet clothes waiting until you come with a dry change of clothes.
Next week will be a busy week. Monday, October 10 is Thanksgiving Day, so there is no school. Please enjoy this time with family and friends as you take the time to reflect on the many blessings God has given you.
Throughout the week, we will be having our school pictures taken and we have two scheduled field trips. Besides these special events, we are looking forward to seeing Mrs. Huizing in the library on Wednesday and enjoying Mathletics on the computers.
On Tuesday afternoon, October 11, we will be visiting the Charlottetown Fire Department. At the fire station, we will be learning about fire safety and seeing the fire trucks.
Then all day on Thursday, October 13, we will be going to the Belfast Corn Maze. Before going to the maze, will take the time to have our school pictures taken and change from good school clothes to farm friendly clothes. At the farm, we will be enjoying a couple of mazes, corn cannons, Tractor Trakks, an oversized sandbox, Human Gerbil Wheels, a Hop-a-Long Rodeo and making memories with our fellow classmates. If you would like to join the fun, we still need drivers. Please let me know if you are available.
For a detailed schedule of events and tests for our class please see October 10-14.
