21 Mars, 2016

Happy Spring !  This is our last week in class before the 2week break. The students will be dismissed at lunch on Thursday. Therefore, there will not be a spelling dictée this week!

Last week, the students brought home two books for their own libraries. I applied for the Oilers and Epcor Share a book program to encourage the students to read in English at home...and our class was chosen!  Enjoy the books 😄

The Trandansa program was a wonderful way to introduce traditional folk dancing into the school!  The students have a natural knack for dance !

Report cards went home today; the card is yours to keep if you could sign and return the parent form along with the envelope.  I will be available for meetings all week after school, as well as Thursday after lunch. Please feel free to contact me or send the request form back to class if you would like to set up a time .

Have a great week!
