Grade 5

Week of October 5th – 9th

Hi Grade 5 Families!

It was great to meet you this past week at Meet the Teacher Night! I hope I was able to shed some light on your child’s daily school life and I hope you enjoyed getting to see it during our short walkthrough of the classroom! 😄 Thank you for your continued patience and support with this school year. This week we look forward to Photo Day on Thursday and a few extra days off; with Pro-D on Friday and Thanksgiving next Monday.

Our featured image this week is a glimpse of the children in our designated outdoor learning space. As part our safety plan, each grade has been assigned an outdoor learning space to use anytime they wish. We have been blessed with beautiful weather, so we decided to do our Communication Skills work outdoors, last week! It was a wonderful way to get outside and soak in the fresh air!
