Sleigh Ride Postponed

Hello Parents,

Unfortunately we will be re-scheduling our class trip to Terpstra’s  for next Thursday  February 6th, at the same time 1:15.  The wind chill will be -17 for tomorrow and that will be too cold to be outside for the afternoon.

Hopefully we will have snow and good weather for next week.

Also, I just wanted to say how proud I am of the grade one and two students!!  They raised over $50 selling bracelets today.  All proceeds from the sale will be donated to John and Holly Barrett who are serving in Bangladesh.  Great job!!  Pictures to coming soon. 🙂

January 27th – 30th

There is a lot going on in grade one and two this week.  Please keep in mind that there is a PD day on Friday, January 31st so there will be no school.

Bracelet sale:

Grade one and two will be going on a sleigh ride on Thursday afternoon.  A permission slip was sent home in your child’s agenda on Friday.  Please sign and return the form by Wednesday morning.  Please indicate on the permission slip if you are available to drive for this field trip.  Kindergarten to grade 4 will be taking part in this field trip.

Students in grade one and two have been working very hard on a special project.  Kyler Barrett came up with the idea to make bracelets with his rainbow loom and sell them.  Many of his classmates have been helping him in the effort to make enough bracelets to sell.  All proceeds from this bracelet sale will go to support Jonathan and Holly Barrett who are working  in  Bangledesh.  The sale will take place on January 30th at lunch time.  The week we will be working on posters in order to make other students away of the sale.  Here is a picture of Kyler and Eva working with a couple other students to make the bracelets.  It is nice to see our students wanting to reach out and help others.

Happy New Year. Welcome back!   I hope you enjoyed your time off.

We had a great first day after the holidays!  We started off the day reviewing our class rules.  We introduced the class rules and procedures in a fun and interactive ways.  Students learned our four class rules and gestures to help them remember the rules.  Ask your children to tell you with the actions what our rules are.  🙂  We are still using the super student chart  and every student has a chance to get up to super student everyday by remembering our class rules.  Student who have remembered and followed our class rules have a three chances a day to move up on the chart; just before recess, before lunch and right at the end of the day.  Please encourage your child at home to consistently follow class rules.  I know that I have a group of super students!!

A few reminders:

  • Milk money for next week is Due on Friday.  They did send us milk this week. If your child usually gets milk I have given it to them this week. Please send in money by Friday for this week’s milk.
  • With all the stormy weather we have had lately please remember that we follow the English language  School board in regards to cancellations and delays.  We also follow Cornel Gray, Charlottetown Rural and Bluefield families of schools.
