January 23rd – 27th

Hi Kinder Families,

We had a wonderful week in school learning about lots of different cultures! In Math we began learning how to count in Cree and in Social Studies we began talking about Lunar New Year and there were wonderful conversations and sharing of ideas in the classroom! Next week we will be celebrating the Feast Day of St. Paul, all are welcome to the day of celebrations the school has planned. On Tuesday we will go on our first field trip of 2023, thank you to all who have volunteered to drive. Watch out for an email with more information!
