Good afternoon Div 1 famillies.

Some of your children will be coming home incredibly muddy today. Please make sure your child has appropriate footwear, and a change of clothing, even on beautiful January days like today.

Victims of today’s muddy field. Please ensure appropriate footwear is coming to school with your child.

Today we started the day with a “$100 Word Challenge” to warm up our brains. Each letter in the alphabet was assigned a monetary value and students raced to see who could come up with a word worth $100 first–shout out to K.B. and O.B. for their $100 words (telephone and payphone.) They also had to come up with the most expensive word they could figure out–shout out to I.F. for a whopping $478 word (Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis… yikes…)

The three winners of today’s challenge will receive a candy bar next week. Now I need to think of our next challenge….

Additionally, we are starting a new research project and diving into La Francophonie. I posted a list of countries to choose from on Teams. Students will pick one country and will need to give me three reasons or interesting facts about that country to justify their choice on Thursday.
