IMG_0083We received a special delivery this afternoon! Division 1 was OVER-THE-MOON when the boxes were delivered. We of course had to memorialize the occasion.

We had a long chat this morning about acceptable behaviour and expectations in the class. In essence- we will continue to practice cleaning up after ourselves and helping out in our shared space. The room was kept in very find shape throughout the day, thank you in particular to the students who dealt with the pile of rubbish on the floor after lunch. We know we can do, now to make it habit.

CLIMBING TOMORROW! Please remind your child to dress appropriately for the event, comfy active clothes and closed toes runners. We are leaving before recess and will be back during lunch. Thank you again to the parents who are driving us there and back!

Les Devoirs:

  • Math- Subtracting integers booklet (rewatch the video?!)
  • Practice Au Champ d’Honneur
  • Ski/SB forms
  • Gr 7 Girls Home Game tomorrow! (Gents, your opponent’s team folded so you now have a bye)

There is LOTS of information in this post so please read thoroughly.

First, it was brought to my attention by our wonderful custodian Isaac that today was the second time he had to clean urine out of the garbage can in our bathroom. I was very disappointed to hear this news, as I hope most of you are. Friends, we are in grade 7. Almost teenagers, almost high school students. You know better. The garbage can has been removed from the bathroom for the time being, any waste needs to be brought out to the can near the door. Parents, if I could please ask that you have a quick chat with your child about appropriate behaviour? Thanks in advance. We, as a class, will be talking about it tomorrow morning.

Today, we began writing the FSAs for this year. I applaud the students for their focus and effort, as we spent basically the entire morning on them. At this rate we’ll finish quickly and be able to move on.

Today marks the beginning of our observance of Remembrance Day. I already explained to the class (those that were listening anyways), that this day is very important to me, as my cousin was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2008. We are very fortunate to live in a country that values peace and free will, and should be thankful to those that choose to stand on the front lines to protect those freedoms. Our Remembrance Day Assembly is on Thursday at 11am if you would like to attend.

Lastly, thank you thank you thank you to all the parents who have volunteered to drive on Wednesday. As of this morning, we have enough! Yay!!! I will be emailing you tomorrow with final details.

Les Devoirs:

  • Orchestre demain
  • Math- Subtracting Integers
  • Examen- Au Champ d’Honneur mardi prochain

Happy Friday!


Kudos to our students who were great leaders today! We had our annual Terry Fox Run, and it didn’t rain! I think it’s so important for us to reflect on the effects that one person can have on the lives of many others. Hopefully it inspires us to broaden our intentions to have a greater impact on the world.

Mme Asimakis reported a good day yesterday. She is asking for any old magazines for a project they are working on.

Entertainment Books went home today. Please read the instructions in the bag.

  • Verification forms

Bienvenue! If this is your first time here, thank you and welcome!

Here you will find homework, announcements, events and reminders, on an almost daily basis. I did not order agendas for the class this year, if you/your child feels like they would like one, you are invited to purchase one on your own time. Students are welcome (and recommended) to take photo of the homework at the end of each day OR reference this blog. If you input your email address just to the right ————————————————-> and hit FOLLOW, you will receive an email every time a post is added. It’s that easy!

It’s also a great place to check for upcoming events if you have been absent. “I didn’t know” will not suffice as an excuse.

Les Devoirs:

  • apportez les fournitures
  • Orchestre demain
  • Moi Dans Un Sac presentations mercredi et vendredi
  • Bienvenue lettre aux parents (bravo!)
  • PAC lettre aux parents


***les amis, bravo pour avoir accompli ton devoir aujourd’hui. Pour recevoir un prix demain, vient me voir dans le matin tout seul et demande-moi combien j’adore mes chats, Cally et Artemis 🙂
