What a crazy week! With the P.D. day, no bus day, school speech competition and theatre trip, we didn't spend much time in the classroom! We did manage to accomplish some things though. Almost everyone has finished their speech in class. Once everyone has presented, a rubric will come home for you to sign. Overall they were done very well. I think the students are glad to have that assignment behind them!
Next week we have our first curling date, Friday from 9:30 to 10:30. Any parents who are available, you can meet us at the school at 9:00 or at the Fergus curling club at 9:20. Every curler needs a large milk bag (for a slider) and clean running shoes.
Our Kraft Dinner lunch will be served on Wednesday of next week. Everyone needs a bowl, fork and plastic bag to carry home the dirty dishes. We are still accepting donations if you have not done so yet!
We will be getiing back into the routines of WWW and Mad Minute next week as well.
I have spoken to several students this week about things being left at home, forgotten at home, incomplete, etc... We all had a quick review of how they should be using their agendas. Each day we set aside time to fill in the agendas, which should be copied from my board. If the agenda is to be used effectively, students must also use them at home. That is they need to be taken out of their backpack, opened and read. That way, the reminders we place in the agenda are useful to you at home. I don't expect parents to sign, but please make sure you are checking the agenda at least a few times a week to keep on top of things. I also am trying to instill in the students that it is their responsibility to use their agenda, not their parents!!
Have a great weekend!
