Grade 1

June 19 – 23

Hello Grade One Families!

Oh my goodness…here we are at the last full week of Grade One! Can you believe it? The students keep telling us ideas of what they would still like to do in Grade One and we are going to try to squish in as much as we can into this week! One thing we will definitely do is focus on having a joyful last full week together in the classroom before the excitement of Fun Day on Friday.

Every day from Monday – Thursday the students will be bringing home something from the classroom such as their notebooks and other activity folders etc. Please be sure to empty your child’s backpack every day so that they have room for what they need to bring home the next day.

Last week the children enjoyed attending the Grade 7 Fundraiser and their Art Show! We thank the Grade 7s for all of their hard work preparing for a fun afternoon! We also finished the “I’m a Gift From God” program. Thank you to all families for completing all the home lessons with your children. 

Please take a look at our email regarding Fun Day Colours and let us know if you have any questions about Fun Day on Friday or any other exciting day coming up!

Lastly, Happy Father’s Day to all of our wonderful Grade One fathers and father-figures! The children had such a wonderful week preparing your gifts for you! We hope that you enjoy using them as much as we enjoyed making them!
