Thanks to everyone who was able to make it last week to our parent-teacher meetings. It is important to be able to have discussions around student achievement and especially to work together to achieve goals that students have set. I am contacting families who were not able to attend a time last week to have these discussions at a later time, or over the phone.
Students are bringing home Social Studies tests for signatures this week. Overall, results were very positive. Hopefully students are well on their way to finishing their home portions of their First Nations projects which include a 3 d model showing some aspect(s) of their tribe's life and a duotang or poster showing several aspects of their researched information, including a map. These are due Monday Dec. 5th. We are continuing to work on their multi-paragraph reports in class.
We will be having a data management test next Tuesday, Nov 29th. This will cover collecting, organizing, displaying and interpreting data using a variety of graph types and finding the median and mean of a set of numbers.
It is also time for a word wall test, which is a review test of the weekly words sent home in the agenda each Monday. This will take place this Friday, Nov. 25th.
Students are very excited about our first Grade 6 7 8 dance of the year. The theme is hat day, so if students wear a hat, they will get into the dance for $1, no hat, $2. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Students not wishing to go to the dance can go to the games room as an option.
Please ensure your child has both indoor and outdoor footwear at school. It is expected they do not wear the same shoes outside and in the class. As the weather is turning colder, students should also have proper coats, hats and mitts. A set of clothes for phys ed class could be kept at school as students should not be wearing jeans to gym class on days 1 and 4.
