Field Trip and Halloween!

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the Parent-Teacher Conference. It was a long day, but a very rewarding day. 

Our Spelling test from last week's words will take place Monday. There will be no Spelling or homework (Besides our main homework - READ, READ READ) this week as a break for the children during Halloween. 

Wednesday is our field trip to the pumpkin patch. As of today, the weather report is predicting rain so students should dress in warm and comfortable clothes, boots as the pumpkin patch can get very muddy, and rain jackets. The bus will leave around 9:00 so please don't be late. We should have enough space on the bus for parents who are joining us, but you can drive to the pumpkin patch on your own. There is lots of parking.

The Walkathon prize, Teacher for a Day will take place tomorrow. Maegan is our teacher tomorrow. Congratulations Maegan!

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conference forms with your time went home last Thursday. If you are unable to attend, please let me know in advance. We are fully booked so if you need to change your appointment, it would have to be for another day. 

The book fair begins tomorrow upstairs. If you have time, I'm sure you and your child would enjoy browsing many good books.

Walkathon Assembly is Tuesday at 1:00pm. All parents are welcome to join us.

Tuesday is the the Grade Two Math Test on Patterning. 

Thursday after school is the beginning of Parent Teacher Conferences. There is no school for students on Friday. The Parent Teacher Conference is for parents, not children (Student Led will be in February). 

Our Field trip is coming up soon. Thank you to all who have returned your permission forms.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conference notices went home last Friday. If you have not already handed them in, please do so by tomorrow. We've had a lot of requests for specific times. We will do our best to fulfill as many as we can, but as we have a rather large class, slots are limited. 

This Friday is a dress up day. Inspirational Hero day. If your child dresses up, the school is asking for a small donation of $1 or $2 that goes to charity.

Next Tuesday, we will have a test in Math based on Unit 1. It will be very much like the work they did in class on extending patterns, letter patterns and repeating patterns. 

We have a lost jacket. Here is a description:
light grey cotton hoodie jacket. It's brand is H&M, size 7-8 years. There is a yellow strap in between hoodie and neck area inside of jacket. 

If anyone has seen it, please let me know. 

If you ordered photos, they went home today and retakes were today as well.

Walkathon Week

Cross Country is tomorrow for everyone who joined. Students can come to school as normal. They should dress in their P.E. strip, but have warm and dry clothes for sitting in the stands. Maybe extra socks and shoes if it's really wet. They need a lunch and snack and a water bottle. We should be back by 3:15 to 3:30pm. The Grade Two's will be the first runners from about 10:30 to 10:45.

Homework will be sent home tomorrow and is due Tuesday for credit.

Friday is our Walkathon. Students once again should be in P.E. strip, but also dressed for the weather. No umbrellas are allowed for safety reasons. Waterproof jackets would be great if it is raining that day. We have Mass in the morning and then go on our walk. When we get back, students will be given a hot dog and drink or snack. Dismissal is at 12:15pm. 

Monday is a holiday so we will see everyone back on Tuesday.

Our first field trip will take place Wednesday, October 28th. More information will be sent home shortly.
