Grade 5

Week of September 12 – 16

Hello Grade Five Families!

What a wonderful first week back to school! The students have transitioned very well back into the routines and I am looking forward to accompanying them on their learning journey this year. They are a fabulous group with whom to begin my life as a Grade 5 teacher.

Please be sure to check the PE blog carefully this weekend and make note of the extra-curricular practices that your child will be attending during the week. Because of the staff attending Outdoor Education with the Grade 7s, the Grade 5 boys will only have one volleyball practice. If your child brings home their PE shoes to use at a before or after school practice, please make sure that they bring their PE shoes back to school the following day. Students wear their PE strip for extra-curricular practices so if your child comes to a morning practice in their PE strip they must have the rest of their uniform in their backpack. Thank-you!

There were many things that needed to be brought or returned to school this past week, so please check that you have sent in the following:

  • headphones
  • a photo for the birthday board
  • forms from the school office in the brown envelope
  • Walkathon volunteer form
  • volleyball permission form
  • cross-country permission form

Here are some notes for the upcoming week: 

Monday

  • return any missing items from the above list
  • photo day ~ students must be wearing the complete school uniform including their sweater, and hair accessories must match the school uniform
  • PE class

Tuesday

  • first visit to the school library (bringing home a book is optional)

Thursday

  • 9:15am Mass ~ please join us if you can!
  • PE class

Friday

  • PE class

Save the Date: Looking far into the future…our class will have a St. Nicholas Day Party on December 6 and we are very hopeful that parents will be able to join us this year. More details will follow in November. 

Please contact me at nkelly@stpaulschool.ca if you have any questions, concerns, or information to share.

Looking forward to a great year of working with all of the Grade 5 families!

Wishing you a restful and fun weekend!

Mrs. Kelly 🙂
