Welcome Back! Week of January 7 – 11

Hello Grade One Families!

Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas break with many memorable, joyful moments! Thank-you very much for all of the Christmas wishes and generous gifts! Your kind words are a blessing to me and I appreciate them very much.

I am excited to begin this new term with the students and for the learning adventures we will have together. This week will be one of transition back to regular school hours and routines. We will spend time learning about the Epiphany and the Sacrament of Baptism as we look forward to celebrating the end of the Christmas season next Sunday with the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Also, we will spend time reviewing and building on knowledge about being a good friend and learner. We will begin new ReadWell units and explore number patterns during math time. Next week, I will post information about the units that we will be covering during January and February along with other important dates for this month. Home reading will resume next week and you will receive information about our sharing (show and tell) presentations as well.

Thankfully this is a very “regular” school week which will be helpful to getting us all back into the routine of school! Please note the following:


  • school resumes at 8:45am
