"I'm a Gift From God" Program

 Hello Grade One Parents!

 There is no homework for "I'm a Gift From God" this week. We finished Concept B today and will not be doing it tomorrow because Fr. Nick is coming to visit.

Week of May 18 - 22

 Hello Grade One Families!

 I hope that you all enjoyed a fun long weekend in the sun. 

 Thank-you for checking the blog regularly for updates on the "I'm a Gift From God" homework. This week we will be having the lessons on Wednesday and Thursday.

 On Thursday May 21 we will have our last library visit for this school year. The students are welcome to take out a book for the weekend, but all library books must be returned on Monday May 25.

 This Friday, May 22, the Grade 7 class will be having a fundraiser for the Ryan's Well Foundation. Please send in a donation of $2 before Thursday. On Friday, we will be attending the Cafe Francais in the Parish Centre as a class. There will be snacks and entertainment provided by the Grade 7 class. There will also be items for sale such as pencil toppers and treats. If you would like your child to have the opportunity to buy these items please send their "shopping" money with them on Friday.

 Finally, thank-you for your patience regarding the arrival of the Scholastic order. There was a small problem which I have sorted out so hopefully the books will arrive soon.

 Have a super week!

Week of May 11 - 15

 Hello Grade One Families!

 I hope that you all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.

 We had such a great visit to the bird sanctuary last week. According to the students, some of the highlights were the ducklings, the beaver lodge, the eagles, the bus ride, and mostly importantly, feeding the ducks. On Friday the students were excited to share their mystery bags. I was very impressed with the clues and the fact that everyone's bag contained something different. Thank-you for your help with this project.

 Here are some reminders for this week:

 Monday

  • hot lunch for those who ordered
  • PE

Tuesday

  • Mity Wear Uniform Sale from 2pm - 6pm

Wednesday

  • PE

Thursday

  • bring spelling duo-tang
  • bring library book
  • school Mass at 11:00am

Friday

  • no school

 I have decided to write the "I'm a Gift From God" assignments on the blog rather than have the students write them in their agenda. Beginning tomorrow, please check the blog Monday, Wednesday and Thursday as these are the days that we will be doing the program lessons. 

 Have a super week!

Field Trip and Other Updates

 Hello Grade One Families!

 Today your child brought home instructions for completing a "mystery bag" assignment. The assignment is due Friday, but may be brought in any day this week. As I mentioned to the students, please do not put food or other perishable items in the bag. 

 On Thursday we will be going on our field trip to the bird sanctuary. It is a regular school day beginning at 8:45am and ending at 3:00pm. We will be away from school for the entire morning. We will not have the opportunity to eat a recess snack so we will eat lunch immediately upon our return to school. The students should wear the following: uniform white polo shirt, uniform sweater or vest, jeans or track pants, shoes appropriate for walking on nature trails, a sunhat. The weather forecast is for sunny warm weather, but the morning may be cool so please send a light jacket as well. 

 Finally, the date of the May school Mass has been changed to Thursday May 14.

 If you have any questions please e-mail me at gr1@stpaulschool.ca

 Thank-you!

This will be another exciting week in Grade One! Please note the following:

  • We had many volunteers for our fieldtrip so the students and I will draw names tomorrow. I will post the names via e-mail tomorrow afternoon.
  • Please pray for our Grade 7 class who will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation on Tuesday evening.
