Check out the pictures soon!

Today we had a short Math class as we had a presenter come in from Hope Mountain to do a presentation on the Watershed Program.  It was very interesting to learn all of the interesting facts learned today, and of course, they will help us at the river tomorrow!

After Recess the students and I discussed what will be needed for the field trip tomorrow.  We then worked on some Music, as I promised the students I would give them some time to finish it so they did not have homework on the long weekend!

In French we played LOTTO, in pairs, and to make it a bit more challenging, I did not go over the numbers with them, but they could use their book!

After lunch the students had PE where we played a new game called Skittles!

Music with Mr. Ma was last block!

Homework:

  1. Parents need to call the school to arrange a time for Parent Teacher Interviews. So far the only parents/guardians to do this for their children include : Danika, Taylor, Kian, Norah, and Dejal.  Thank you for making these arrangements already.  I do hope to see everyone on Wednesday or Thursday from 5-7:30pm.
  2. Field Trip tomorrow- wear running shoes, hoodie and jacket, pants (not shorts), mitts/gloves, easy recess snack to eat
  3. Book Orders- due the 17th
