Dear Grade Six Families,
The children had an opportunity to experience Mass as a class this week. Even though we were not physically able to be in the Church, it was wonderful to be together as a community.
On Friday, we recognized Black Shirt Day in support of anti-racism. The students watched a video about the unfortunate George Floyd incident last year. We also talked about the most poignant worldwide examples of racism and discrimination over the last 60 years. It was a heavy topic and we hope that you had a good discussion with your child regarding this very important time in our history. We ended our talk watching the video “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His very famous words still resonate today: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Homework for this weekend includes:
- Read thirty minutes both quietly and aloud (fiction and non-fiction books)
- Practice your multiplication tables – 5 minutes everyday
- Sign Être quiz for Wednesday
- Fishbone chart on Alexander Calder – fine-line your drawings, erase pencil lines and colour neatly – due Thursday
Please email us if you have any questions or concerns.
