Grade 1

March 4-8

Hello Grade One Families!

Can you believe we are almost at Spring Break? Oh how the time flies by when you’re having fun in Grade One!

On Wednesday, the children celebrated Pink Shirt Day. In Grade 1, we focused on kindness in our classroom. We read stories that helped to reinforce the Pink Shirt Day theme of “Lift Each Other Up.” The children also participated in a virtual broadcast across Canada for Pink Shirt Day. They had a wonderful day, and made their very own Pink Shirt Day Promises, where they thought of ways they could be a kind friend and lift each other up everyday.

On Friday we had the privilege of having a visit from Archbishop Miller.  The children were excited to see him.  We had a special assembly when they sang beautifully for him and enjoyed when he stopped by our class for a little visit!

As part of our community unit, the children will be taking home their Spring Break Scavenger Hunt, a fun homework activity to complete over Spring Break. Please keep an eye out for their folders which will be sent home this week. These will be due back to school on Wednesday, April 3rd.

After Spring Break, the Grade One’s will also be starting the “I’m a Gift from God” program. Please keep an eye on your email for more information.
