Grade 5

Week of June 3 – 7

Hi Grade 5 Families,

It’s hard to believe it’s already June! We’ve been blessed with many beautiful, sunny days! Last week, some of the children got to the CISVA Track Meet, while some of the children got to preview sitting in the older grades for a day! It was eventful all around! This week, we look forward to Day 2 of CISVA! And reminder it is a Pro-D Day on Friday!

Our featured image this week is from our Sphero exploration! The Sphero robot toys are a great way to build on problem solving skills and creativity! The children partake in experiential learning that builds on life skills for the future careers! And it’s a lot of fun! 😄

  1. Reading: Continue to read for at least 30 minutes each day!

  3. Active Pass: A reminder to students to bring their Active Pass to school. If you do not have one, you can go to any Richmond community centre and get one for free (it’s free for students in Grade 5). It will help greatly during our upcoming Intermediate trip to Watermania.
  4. Sphero App: Please check your email for an email from Sphero; we need parent approval to sync up their progress with the app on Google Classroom.

Friendly Reminders:
