Hello Grade One Families!
Here we are a few weeks into spring and the children are enjoying playing outside in this beautiful weather. I have encouraged the children to bring a baseball cap or sunhat to school to wear outside in the warm, sunny weather. Please make sure that any hats that are worn to school are labelled with your child's name. Also, many of the students are in need of new crayons. Please ask your child if they need new crayons and if the answer is "yes!" then please buy a 24 pack and send it to school as soon as possible.
These are our units of study for the remainder of the school year:
Religion - the rosary and Mary, the "I'm a Gift from God" program, the Church
Math - addition and subtraction to 20
Writing - imaginative story writing
Social Studies/Science - habitats and local animals
I will not be sending suggestions for family activities for May and June, but I will send a list of possible "family field trips" for the summer.
Please note these important dates for Grade One in May:
May 2 - Assembly cancelled
May 5 - field trip to the bird sanctuary: Students should wear their school polo shirt, school sweater, casual pants (such as jeans), and running shoes. We will be away for the entire morning and return for lunch and afternoon classes. There will not be a morning snack on this day.
May 14 - school Mass at 11:00am
May 16 - no school
May 19 - no school
May 22 - all library books due (there will be no further Grade One library periods after this date)
Please contact me if you have any questions.
