June 11-15, 2018

Welcome to a cool and wet beginning of the week.    Thanks to those who have filled out the online permission click form for the Turner Creek Hike, I have received 13 so far.  For the rest please complete it as soon as possible.  Thank you. Follow this link to do so: https://permission.click/1GBJ

We will begin some little chemical change experiments this week.   We will make lemonade, adding baking soda to vinegar to blow up a balloon and making mini muffins on Friday.  If your child has food allergies, you may want to send a little snack for him/her Friday instead of the mini blueberry muffin.

In Health, we will be reviewing why you wear a helmet, private and public parts of your body (the private parts are covered by your swimsuit) as well as appropriate ways to avoid unsafe situation (stay in a group, tell your parent where you are going, and use sidewalks and crosswalks).

Here are a few other things that will be coming up this week:  

Monday and Tuesday will be regular days in our classroom and on our school ground


Book Day as well as our last library day- please return all books today!  Check in your bookshelf, under the couch, the bed etc.  I have many home reading book missing that I would love to get back and some students will need to pay for lost books if they are not returned.


Swim Day #3, remember to wear your swimsuit and bring your towel and underwear in a bag.  I will be away and Ms. Bird will be in for me while I am at a planning meeting at the Board Office.


Ms. Corrie will be in for me while I write report cards.  I am very proud of how hard the students have worked this year.  Keep reading everyone and join the summer reading program at the public library, information was sent last week following our visit from Ardie.

*Next Tuesday we will have our walk down the Turner Creek Trail to finish at Fletcher Park.   We will also see the Intermediate Battle of the Bands Competition after lunch.

We are approaching the end of the year and you may be noticing some unusual behaviour with your child.  Children often have difficulty at the end as it means change is coming and for some the uncertainly of a new teacher is worrisome.  I like to remind them that we will be together the first day back and I can hear about their adventures.  I do not have any answers about palcement for next year so all we can do is reassure them that it will be ok.  If you are moving please be sure that the office knows you are moving.  Thanks!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the amazing dad’s and father figures that support these lovely children.
