HIGHLIGHT FROM LAST WEEK:
- Looking for our class Elf’s hiding spot each day
- Playing hand-made drums and singing traditional First Nations songs with special visitor, Daryl
- “You Can Count On Me” Math event (parents playing a game with Kindergarteners)
WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEK:
We will focus on the letter "Mm” this week. In Math, we will have a visit from Zero the Hero on Monday for our 60th day of school! We will also continue playing a dice game called, “Roll A Snowman.” We still have library on Monday; however, students will need to bring their books back before winter break (Friday, Dec. 18th at the latest).
We have our school-wide dress rehearsal for the Winter concert on Tuesday. The performances will take place on Wednesday and Thursday beginning at 12:45 pm. Please make sure to attend the appropriate concert (Wednesday- families with last names beginning with A-J; Thursday for families M-Z), due to fire marshal regulations, we can only have so many people in the building at one time :) Please send your child to school in their costumes on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We are asking that the students wear black bottoms and a red or white top (no logos please – or just turn your child’s shirt inside out and cut off the tag). Your child can also wear a Santa hat if he/she already has one, if not, please don't worry about purchasing one, it is not necessary.
Friday is school-wide Pajama Day AND Free Pizza Day. Thanks PAC and Panago for this generous donation! On Friday afternoon, we will be watching a Christmas movie in the Library with Mrs. Dhaliwal’s class.
REMINDERS/HOW PARENTS CAN HELP:
- Sign and return your child’s report card envelope so it can be re-used next term and so I know you’ve read about your child’s progress :) (the report card is your copy to keep)
- Last day to bring non-perishable items for ME to WE Leadership students FOOD DRIVE is Dec.16th. The collection bins are outside the office
- Some very nasty germs (mostly flu) are currently going around our school. We have had staff and students becoming ill while at school. Please do not send your child to school if he/she is not feeling well. I know it would be disappointing to miss his/her first Christmas Concert, but it would be even more disappointing to have a stomach bug on Christmas Day (or to throw up on stage during our concert...). We will be sending home children we believe to be sick in an effort to keep everyone as healthy as possible as the holidays approach :)
