Short Week

We have a short week. No school Thursday and Friday for students because of the FISA conference. 
There will be no homework this week as we will not have our Spelling test since the week is too short.

Next Monday, February 8th is Family Day. No school.

Scholastic Orders are due this Wednesday.

We are celebrating Julia's birthday this Wednesday (3rd). She is bringing in pizza for the class so students do not need a big lunch on that day. 

Student Led Conference forms are due tomorrow. Times will be handed out when we return on Tuesday. If you really need to know your time, please email me and I can let you know after Wednesday.

Student Led Conference

The sign up sheets for Student Led Conference went home today. It goes home with the oldest sibling in the school. 
A few notes about Student Led as it's pretty different than the Parent-Teacher conference we had in October. The student is in charge so your child has to be present. 
I will try to honour time requests as best as I can, but might not be able to give a specific time. Every block is 30 minutes and there will about 4 families in during that time.
We cannot schedule them on a different day as the classroom is set up for that day.
If a form is not returned, I will give you a time.

Week of January 19th

Reminder about the Reconciliation meeting tomorrow, January 19th. It will take place at 6:15pm in the Gr. 2 classroom. It is for all those who have children going through the sacraments this year. 
It is a meeting for parents so children do not have to attend. If you are unable to have someone look after your child, then it's OK for them to come and read a book or something quietly.

Tomorrow is also our pizza party. Students will still need a snack at recess.

They will need to make sure that they have boots/shoes/jackets etc to go outside on that day. They do not need to worry about P.E. as long as their pyjamas are OK with moving and running. They should have their P.E. shoes at school every day.

Scholastic orders are due Friday, January 15th as well.

Next Monday, January 18th is a Pro-D Day. No school for students.
