October 20, 2014

Welcome to another short week!  We have a special treat this weekin that we are participating in several activities relating to the Dark Sky Festival.  We will hear from Joan Marie Galat, Alan Dyer, Chris Beckett, and Wilfred Buck throughout the week.

I am off to Halifax to attend the Professional French Immersion Teacher's Conference. I will be absent on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

In lieu of a spelling dictée this week, the students will be asked to match ordinal numbers from 1-10 to the written form of the number.  They will not have to spell any words, rather, recognize the word and match it to it's appropriate number.

We are hosting the cookie sale this Thursday at recess and students are asked to bring in 2 dozen nut-free treats.  The proceeds that we raise are put directly to our school's foster child in Guatemala.

Thanks to all of this students who contributed to our "Friendship soup" last week. The veggies took a while to cook and we finally got to have a taste of the soup today....yum!  I thought that there would be a ton of leftovers, but the students gobbled it all up, even asked for seconds!!
