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: 


  • 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


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


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


  • 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 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 🙂
