Grade 5

Week of December 5 – 9, 2022

Hello Grade Five Families!

The second week of Advent is the week of peace and the week of preparation as we heard in the Gospel reading today. John the Baptist reminds us that it is time to prepare for the coming of the Lord. By preparing our hearts and spending time with Jesus, we will achieve the peace of the season of Advent. I wish all of you a week during which you can find time to spend in peace with our Lord.

This week we will begin a new series of lessons in the Open Parachute Program. It is the “Bullying and Addictive Patterns” unit. I would encourage you to go to your parent account and watch the “Bullying” video so that you are familiar with Dr. Watson’s approach to this very important topic. If you need a new link to enter the parent portal, please email me.

Please send in your donations for BlanketBC this week. Just a reminder that the Grade Five students are asked to bring in an adult-sized toque. If you have any blankets to donate, please make sure that they are washed and in a plastic garbage bag. Thank-you!

Last week I sent an email about what the Grade Five students will be wearing for the Christmas Concert next week. It is black bottoms (pants or a skirt) and a solid coloured collared shirt (dress-shirt, blouse or polo-shirt). We don’t have much storage space in the classroom so could I please request that you send the clothes in on either Thursday December 8 or Friday December 9. Thank-you!

Lastly, please remember to send in the ski forms and payment this week if you have not already done so. Thank-you!
