Week of October 21 – 25

Hello Grade One Families!

It was so wonderful to have the opportunity to meet with all of you yesterday at the Learning Conferences. Thank-you for sharing your comments and insights with me to help us to be able to work better together!!

The agenda books have arrived! On Monday your child will be bringing home their agenda book for the first time. Please check the homework and/or messages in the agenda book every day and initial it in the indicated space. Agenda books are to be returned to school every day. Thank-you!

Looking Ahead

On Wednesday October 30, Christine’s family will be providing sushi and pizza for the students’ lunch in celebration of her birthday. Please send snacks and water bottles as usual.

On Thursday October 31, it is Halloween! The students may wear their costumes or black and orange clothes to school. Also, you are welcome to send small treats for the class (this is completely optional). Please keep in mind that we have 31 students in our class including your child. I will provide the “trick or treat” bags for all of the students to bring their treats home. I will post more information about Halloween  on the Grade One blog next week.

Please note that the Walkathon Celebration Assembly has been moved to Friday November 1.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at nkelly@stpaulschool.ca .

Have a great weekend and week ahead!

Mrs. Kelly
