A few bits for the week...

  • This week, we are beginning our NUTS About Homework Program. Students who bring completed and signed Spelling Homework back to school on Thursdays get to attach a “nut” to their squirrels. In addition, we've started collecting “nuts” for home reading. Your child has been supplied with a sheet of 5 bookmarks. Each day your child completes 15-20 minutes reading to an adult or older child, you can initial a nut on the bookmark (maximum 1 per day). When your child has 5 nuts initialled, he/she can bring the bookmark in to trade for a “nut” for his/her squirrel.

  • Our class has elected to have a Pyjama Day next Friday, November 27th along with our buddy class, Mrs. Scott's Grade 4s. Students are welcome to wear their PJs and bring a stuffed friend to join us for the day. Please note that they will still be going outside for recess so make certain your child brings appropriate outdoor clothes.
