Grade 5

Week of October 26th – 30th

Hi Grade 5 Families!

It was wonderful meeting with you at the Learning Conferences this past Thursday and Friday. I hope I was able to shed some light on your child’s learning in the year so far! This week, we look forward to Halloween Dress Down Day! Please be sure to review the Halloween information below.

Our featured image this week is from our Math Centres. Each of the children have their own set of cubes and dice to use for centres. It’s a great way to practice our basic math skills and learn from one another in a fun (sometimes competitive 😅) setting!
