We have a had a great first week back after the break.  As we settle in for the remainder of the second quarter, I would like to remind you of the homework procedures for grade one.  Each night students should read from their Handbook for Reading (pages are located in your child’s agenda), as well as read 15 minutes from a book of their choice.  Please record the name of the book in your child’s blue folder and sign that they have completed it.  Each week a spelling list is assigned and should be written out each night in their blue notebook.  Also, please check the right hand side of your child’s blue folder.  Work that has not been completed in class will be sent home to completed and must be returned to school the next day.

Skating & Skiing For Elementary:

Although an official permission slip outlining all the details of the skating and skiing events for elementary will be sent home with your child in the future, I wanted to take a moment to give you the heads up that we will once again be participating in these activities throughout the months of February and March.

Students are not required to have their own ski gear, nor are they obligated to attend this event.  Elementary students in grades 3 – 6 will ski twice throughout the winter months at Brookvale Provincial Ski Park and lessons will be provided for students who require them.

Students that wish to participate in skating must have their own skates and helmet.  Students are not obligated to participate, however should they wish to, please make arrangements for them to acquire the proper skating equipment.  Elementary students in grades 1 – 6 will skate three times throughout the winter months.
