Grade 5 families, 

We were thankful to have at least a couple days of school last week and hoping for a full week ahead of us. In Social Studies students discussed the importance of rules as we learned about the Benedictine Rule of the Monks in the Middle Ages. In Math we continued our look at graphs and studied line graphs. In Language Arts we were able to get caught up on the missed days and discussed how non-fiction is read differently from fiction. Keep reading to find out what is planned for the coming week.

Winter Carnival Theme Days

Monday: Spring Picture Day (No dress-up day)

You can check out Pinterest for some creative ideas. Remember: modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the expectation.

Wednesday: Tacky Tourist Day – We can’t travel or go away for March Break this year but today you can dress up as though you are on your way to our favourite travel destination! Wear your Hawaiian shirts and white socks with sandals or your favourite souvenir shirt – use your imagination! Remember: modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the expectation.

Thursday: Science Fair Day (Gr. 5 – 9) (No dress-up day)

Friday: PJ Day – To end-off Winter Carnival week, wear your pajamas to school, but don’t forget to wake up! Remember: modest, clean, neat and appropriate is always the expectation.
