Hello Grade One Families!
I hope that you all had a wonderful Halloween and All Saints Day. Thank-you to all of the moms who were able to join us on Friday afternoon to lead our Halloween stations.
As we begin the month of November, we will be starting some new units of study. In Religion, the students will be learning about a new saint everyday. In Science we will begin a unit on magnetism, and in Social Studies we will explore occupations in our community. In Reading, we will work on story recall, and in Writing we will practice letter writing. In Math we will continue our unit on numbers to 20.
This week in Grade One:
The PE schedule will return to Monday, Wednesday and Friday classes.
Photo retakes will take place on Wednesday. Just a reminder that if your child does not submit the original photo package and the retake request form they will not receive a retake. Please send these in ahead of time on either Monday or Tuesday.
Our Assembly will begin at 9:00am on Friday. A few Grade One students will be reading and the rest of the class will take part in the procession honoring the fallen soldiers we remember on Remembrance Day. Please join us! Also, please consider attending the Parent Education Series talk about online gaming which will take place in Meeting Rooms 1&2 after the Assembly.
Christmas Art order forms and payments are due on Friday. If you are not planning to order, please return the art in the envelope to school on Monday or Tuesday so that I can make sure that no one is missed in the ordering.
Finally, if you have any extra Halloween candy that you would like to donate to the Agape Street Ministry, please send it to school on Monday November 3.
Have a wonderful week!
