We made it!!

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.

Take care, Mme Soo ❤

Update

Good evening families!

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 🙂

À vendredi!

Le 12 décembre

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

À demain!

le 9 décembre

It was Cozy Day in the Chalet today!

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.

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.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, à lundi!

Demain: le 9 décembre

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.

À demain!

le 6 decembre

This morning we started with another On Partage. Students picked a superpower they’d like to have and explained why.

We also continued working on our English one-pagers.

We switched off for Socials after recess.

Band and Math after lunch, students are preparing for the concert next week!

Les Devoirs:

  • Young Entrepreneur Fair tomorrow (no gym)
  • 6mes- Math Quiz: Les Suites Numériques et Les Machines Entree/Sortie
  • Giving Trees

    • Term 1 Report Cards published
    • Let’s have a Cozy Day?!

À demain!

le 5 decembre

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

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!

Les Devoirs:

  • orchestre demain (only 2 more classes til the concert!)
  • 6mes- Math: Quiz mercredi (Les Suites Numériques et les Machines Entrée/Sortie
    • SH- Collaboration Globale Qs

À demain!

le 2 decembre

I cannot believe it’s December already!!! Today was 90s Day, so fun! I wore my JEM sweatshirt 😀 (80s I know but I watched it in the 90s)

Also, Fridays are soooooo busy! We did lots of English today as we try and wrap up our Non-Fiction Text Structure stuff. Thanks to everyone for working so diligently this afternoon on their writing.

Just a reminder for your compare and contrast paragraphs:

  • introduction sentence
  • 3 ideas (with details)
  • KEY/SIGNAL WORDS
  • concluding sentence
  • MAKE SURE YOU PROOF READ AND MAKE CORRECTIONS BEFORE SHARING

Les Devoirs:

  • 6mes- SH- Collaboration Globale Qs
    • Math- Number Patterns paquet
  • 7me Math?
  • Giving Trees- thanks to everyone for bringing in coins for the coin drive. There are still LOTS of tags on the trees. Giving Trees will continue all next week as well. Thank you for your support!

I will be spending the weekend writing report cards. Students spent several days this week doing their own self-reflections about their learning, I can’t wait for you to read their thoughts!

Bonne fin de semaine!
