The school yard is muddy and wet on milder days. Please make sure your child has a spare set of clothes at school and replace ones they wear home. Many of the students are playing soccer in the field and it is very muddy.
Thank you to all the parents who came to our Integrity assembly and provided the delicious treats for our Easter party.
The first swim lesson day went well. Thank you for sending the children in clothes that they can manage themselves and with heavy bags to transport their wet items.
We eat our second lunch after swimming and most of the kids are quite hungry from being in the pool for an hour.
The swimming program continues for the next 3 weeks on Tuesdays.
Elephant Thoughts science activities begin this week on Thursdays.
We have Groove dance workshops on April 13th and 16th. Please make sure your child is dressed in comfortable clothes that are easy to move in.
The Nottawa Art Expo is on April 25th. The Expo is open to families to visit from 2:15 until 6:00.
The next Character Assembly is on April 26th.
April 27th is a PA day.
Our class has been learning about oral health and we had a very informative visit from Dr. McCoppen, to share ideas about looking after our teeth and overall oral health.
Please RETURN THE HOME READING BOOKS DAILY WHEN POSSIBLE!
The students are continuing to work on writing reports on animals and we will also be doing book reports before moving on to writing narratives.
Our new math unit is number sense again. Below are the expectations.
Thank you for all your support.
