26 fevrier, 2014

As our skating sessions got cut short during the month of January, we have booked the first three Tuesdays in March to skate.  We will go between 2 and 3, as usual.

The sound this week is the same sound as last week with a different letter combination...."EN" makes the nasal "uhn" sound.  The words are:

1. cent - one hundred
2. dent - tooth
3. lent - slow
4. vent - wind
5. enfant - child
6. serpent - snake

Today is the Carnaval and the students need to dress warmly and bring a helmet with them.  All parent volunteers are appreciated to accompany groups of students to each station.

This Friday, Marta Rhode is hosting her third annual "Pyjama Day" in Jasper to bring awareness to people living with auto-immune disorders.  Send your child to school in their jammies (and wear yours around town, too!).

18 février, 2014

After a very busy week last week, it was nice to have a Monday at home! 

Did your child ask you the answer to the question 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1?

If not, quiz them...

The sound of the week is "an" and the action/story is that the grandma in the village of sounds is very hard of hearing so each time someone asks her a question, she puts her hand to her ear and says, "anh?".

The words of the week are:
1. orange - orange
2. maman - mother
3. dans - in
4. grand - big
5. blanc  - white
6. mange - eat

Have a great week!

11 février, 2014---class list attached!

We are planning a Valentine's Day/100th day party for this Friday afternoon. I 've included a class list, in case your child would like to bring cards for their classmates. Students are not required to bring Valentine's, but if they do, they should bring one for everyone, so that nobody feels left out.) 
Also, if you'd like to bring something for our snack table, that would be wonderful.

We were going to celebrate Valentine's Day with a skating party at the arena, however, the rink will not be available to us by Friday.  We'll resume our skating afternoons as soon as we are able; I'll keep you posted as info becomes available.

Also this Friday, the Student Council has organized a wear "red, pink or hearts" day.  Dig out your finest Heart Day colors.

Another dress-up day to consider is on Thursday afternoon when the Student Advisory Committee has a fun afternoon planned.  Students are invited to dress-up as a circus character for the afternoon assembly.

Also, a BIG merci for all of the hard work, organizing, recess supervising, baking and spoiling that the parents have done for the staff at JES! 

Have a good week!

Becky
