We had a SUPER chill day today, and we had many students away.
I am so happy that I got to come back for the last day, a nice little bit of closure for us I think. Thank you to everyone for all your well wishes and sweet gifts. I feel very blessed and honoured. Thanks to Mama D for putting together that extremely generous class gift, I love everything and can’t wait to use all of it ❤
Wishing you all a very restful and joyous holiday season, and all the best in the new year. I will absolutely let you know as soon as there is news to share, and I will be around the school as I still have to drop off and pick up my daughter.
Gentle reminder that the first day back is January 3, 2023.
Just wanted to let you know that the turning manoeuvre was successful and I am home. Unless something comes up, I will be at school on Friday and am looking forward to seeing you all.
Have a great day with Mme Shak tomorrow. I forgot to mention that the teachers are playing a volleyball game against some RCMP officers tomorrow at lunch. We played last year and it was so fun! It is only open to grade 6/7s and entrance is an item for the food bank. I’m sad to be missing it!
Thank you for all your well wishes and positive energy. I’m looking forward to finishing out the term as planned 🙂
I would say Wrap-A-Desk was very successful this year! Students could use their class money to sit at a festively wrapped table with a friend this week. So fun ☺️
Today was lovely. Thank you so much to Mme Riznek and both classes for organizing such a sweet little gathering for me. My heart is so full and I so appreciate all the gestures 💜
Some of us watched the primary concert this afternoon, which was adorable. Students could choose between attending the concert or hanging out in Mme Riznek’s class.
Tomorrow is our turn to perform! Our Matinee concert is at 1pm and the evening concert at 6:30. I am waiting on final details for drop off time tomorrow evening, and will let you know when I hear more. All students should remember their instruments and music. Gr 7s are wearing all black and grade 6s are dressing festive.
The rest of the week:
Wednesday- no Mme Soo, Education physique
jeudi- Mme Shak’s last day
vendredi- diner chaud, last day before winter break
For the most part we were busy little bees, finishing up Socials and English. Our banner for the Winter Concert is done! We were also able to visit the Soo-permarché (for the last time), and I served up some hot chocolate and cookies for everyone.
Term 1 Report Cards should be available for your reading enjoyment. Mme Shak, Mme Riznek and I spent a great deal of time observing, assessing and evaluating Div 3 across the subject areas, and hopefully have eloquently shared those findings with you. You will also find your own child’s words in their report, something I feel very strongly about. I also think that their reflections are a great talking point with you. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. I will not be checking my email this weekend, I have a lot going on at home these days (please see my email), but will certainly get back to you early next week.
lundi- Primary Winter Concert (1:00 and 6:30pm)
7s- Math Games
mardi- Intermediate Winter Concert (1:00 and 6:30pm)
Mme Soo’s possible last day (again, see my email)
mercredi- Education Physique
jeudi- Mme Shak’s last day
vendredi- Diner Chaud (Subway), class cleanup before the break.
Good afternoon! Sorry for no post yesterday, but of a crazy afternoon.
Hope you had a good day with Mme Shak. Just a reminder that her last day is next Thursday.
Just wanted to update and remind about tomorrow:
There will not be Enrichment tomorrow, the teachers feel that we don’t need a final session now that Young Entrepreneurs has wrapped up.
We have some things to finish up tomorrow- 7s: your Agricultural Revolution advertisement is due, 6s- some of you have a Math Quiz to write. Many of you need to finish up your Winter Tradition one pager and your Happy Holidays art piece.
in the afternoon we will have some cozy time, the Soo-permarche will be open and I have a little something planned for you.
Term 1 report cards will also be published in the afternoon.
Today we started a winter holiday project to finish up our English this term. Students are researching different winter traditions from around the world and creating one-page non-fiction documents incorporating various text features. A part of their final assessment is a conference with me where we discuss which text features the included and why (none isn’t an option!) Once they are done I’ll print them and post them up so everyone can learn about different cultures and traditions, so fun!
We are also incorporating the idea of diversity and inclusion into our decorative banner for the gym. Students have all selected a different language and have researched how to say Happy Holidays (or Merry Christmas if it’s applicable) in that language, and the flag of a country that speaks that language. We will compile their artistic pieces onto a class banner which you will be able to see at the Winter Concert next week.
Giving Trees are ongoing this week. There are tags still on the trees in the foyer, if your family hasn’t grabbed one yet, it’s a great way to give back this time of year 🙂
Our Young Entrepreneur Fair is on Wednesday, which was one of our Enrichment choices this term. Our class will be going to check out the various products Wednesday morning if you’d like to send along some pocket change. We have 5 students from Div 3 participating!
orchestre demain (only 2 more classes til the concert!)
6mes- Math: Quiz mercredi (Les Suites Numériques et les Machines Entrée/Sortie
We did another On Partage this morning, “what would you do with $1 million?” We have some very generous students in Div 3! Then the students compiled their Dictee results and looked over their On Partage feedback in order the complete their French Self-Reflection. You will get to read their thoughts in their report card.
We switched off for Socials. Gr 7s are wrapping up the term by discussing the Agricultural (or Neolithic) Revolution.
After lunch, Band and Math happened. Our 6s have started examining number patterns to wrap up the term, and 7s continue to work through operations with decimals. In Band, final preparations are happening for our Winter Concert.
Then, the snow started. I hope you all made it home safe, and remain safe. For those that may be curious, the district will decide and announce school closures by 6:30 that day. Please check the district website or their social media pages, or listen to the news for the most up to date information. School staff find out the same way you do.
