Hello Grade One Families!
Happy Father’s Day!
I hope that all of the dads are having a super day today!
So, we are coming to the end of the year…the report cards are (mostly) done, the transition visits are happening, and Fun Day is just around the corner!! This will be a busy week in Grade One and there will be a lot of fun activities happening throughout the week. We will finish the “I’m a Gift from God” program this week by completing Concepts G, H and I. Thank-you for your support in making sure that the workbooks are returned daily.
Please return your Garden City Play Park form as soon as possible. Thank-you!
Please note the following for this week:
- PE class
- no hot lunch this week
- special visit from a firefighter (Kyle Moorehead) who will speak to the children about fire safety and firefighting
- special visit to the Grade 3 classroom to check out their roller coaster projects
- PE class

- Step-Up Day ~ students will spend the afternoon with Mrs. Teodosio and learn some things about Grade Two while I get to know the Kindergarten students who will be coming into Grade One in September
- we will begin our classroom clean-up today and students will be bringing home some of their notebooks etc. so please send a cloth grocery bag in their backpack in case of overflow 🙂
