Hello everyone,

     We celebrated the first day of Fall today at our calendar time which was also the mark for a bundle block to show us that we have been in our class for 10 days! 

Plus, we had a great warm up and fun run for Terry Fox Run today. We had a discussion about who he was and why we run. Thank you for all the donations.  Our own Brooklyn won the Terry Fox T-shirt - congratulations!

Scholastic Thank you for the orders.


Just a reminder our sharing topic is About Me. Please help your child pick out 3-5 items, pictures, etc for them to share with the class. 

Our Schedule this Year:

Gym Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday(body breaks everyday)

Library Tuesday (Please return the books by Monday)

Star Student We are working our way down our list alphabetically. But if there is a birthday, the child whose birthday it is will be the star student for the day. Everyone gets a turn and then go through the list again. If your child is quite late, they will have to wait until the next day.

Reminders for Next Week:

Photo Day Sept. 27

Get to Know Your School Night 5:30 - 6:30 

Orange Shirt Day Sept. 28 (Information Below)

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013.  It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year.  It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.

Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

Fun Lunch Ordering online closes Oct. 7  for Fun Lunch Oct 17th


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as we embrace the Fall weather!
