Weekly update – Friday, December 6 2019

Dear Grade 6 Families,

During our field trip today to the Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre, the children learned about genomics and general cancer research by doing a DNA extraction from a strawberry and looking at cancer research laboratory equipment. I was very pleased with their participation as well as their behaviour.

Homework for this weekend includes:


  1. Read 30 minutes everyday both quietly and aloud


  1. Memorize your lines for Une entrevue aver mon ou ma camarade de classe for Monday


  1. See Google Classroom for Space Spinoffs. If you need to make corrections I wrote something by your name. Corrections are due Monday.


  1. Bring one candy cane for Wednesday


  1. Grade 6 Christmas Advent party – Dec. 12
  2. Christmas celebration: The Best Present of All – Dec. 17 (1pm and 7pm)

Enjoy your weekend!

Mrs. Caprilli and Ms. Carroll
