Brrr! Where did fall go? Just a reminder that students can spend up to 80 minutes of their day at school outdoors, with recess breaks, before school starts and daily physical activity. Please remind your child to have a hat, mitts and suitable outdoor footwear at school or in their backpacks. Our yard can get quite chilly when those northwest winds blow! There are also a few students still not wearing appropriate clothes during gym classes. Shorts or track pants, light weight shirts and tied up running shoes are mandatory.
We are having a quiz on large numbers tomorrow, where students will need to be able to read, write, order and compare numbers to the millions, as well as apply their knowledge in problem-solving questions. Next week we will start to work with decimals. A unit test will be early in November.
We are finishing up our planet presentations this week. Thanks so much for providing colour photos, clay and other materials from home for the projects. If you have not seen it yet, ask your child to log on to a computer and show you the slide shows their group created on the cloud... they all did a fantastic job of this and I am in awe of their skills in this area! Projects will be coming home, as we just have no room to display them here in the portable.
Our social studies unit on First Nations will begin next week, and we will be taking a short break from science.
A reminder that tomorrow is our first half school day, half PD day. Buses will be leaving the school shortly after noon tomorrow.
Our OPP Kids program, (formerly DARE), will be wrapping up in the next few weeks. Watch in the agenda for an invitation to our graduation ceremony later in November. Students will be preparing a multi paragraph report demonstrating what they have learned in this very valuable program.
Our class will be heading up the Remembrance Day assembly on November 11th. If you are available, please join us in the gym at 10:00 on that day.
