Hello Parents,

If you have taken some class photos of our chapel performance and would not mind sharing, I would appreciate it if you can email them to me so I can put the photos on the blog.

If you can do so by next Friday, May 10, that would be great!

Love,

Ms. Chan

CORRECTION: May 21 – School is in session.

I apologize for the correction. I had used an older version of the school calendar and amendments were made recently.

Class Photos

We will be taking class photos on Monday.  Please help your child dress up for the occasion.  We will also go outside to take a school wide panorama.

Library

Please help your child get ready their library bags for Monday.

Spelling

New words will be coming home this week. Students who do not practice at home tend to be confused during the spelling test on Friday.  Please help your child solidify homework habits during the week.  This will be especially important in Grade 3 where classroom activities are more complex and require students to have the discipline to start and complete work on their own.

BMV

Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20a Due: May 10

Up N Coming:

Monday, May 6 – Class photo/panorama

Thursday, May 16 – BC Hydro electricity presentation – in class

Monday, May 20 – Victoria Day – NO SCHOOL

Friday, May 31 – Carnival

 

 

Chapel Performance – THANK YOU

Posted by bchan | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 29, 2019

Hello Parents,

We did it!!!

I am so proud of all the students.  They spoke loud and clear and the transitions between the scenes were seamless. I was so caught up in their performance I no longer looked at the script or worried about the props going out at the right time…the students just knew what to do! It was fabulous.

I really want to also say thank you for all your love and support, for the time you spent rehearsing with your child and for encouraging them to try their best and enjoy the process!  They continue to be enthusiastic about performance, to put in their best effort and to look forward to share the gospel with the people they love.

I hope you all have a enjoyable rest of the week!

Love,

Ms. Chan

Chapel Preparations

Please arrive at school by 8:15 am on Monday, April 29. We need more time to put on costumes, calm down and get ready for the performance.  You will need to enter by the back door (by the parking lot).  If you drop your child off at the front door, they can walk to the back door by themselves along the side of the school. It would be helpful if parents can make their way to the gym to get a seat so students will not be over-excited with many adults in the room. Thank you for your understanding.

Clothes

Please help you child wear a dark top and pants (dark gray, black, blue, purple, brown is OK). It is better to wear a long or short sleeve t-shirt.  Hoodies are bulky and make the students hot.

Spelling

We start again this week. Please look for their spelling sheets to come home on Monday.

Library

We missed library last week because Grandparents Day lasted longer than expected. Please help your child prepare their library bag for Monday.

Bible Memory Verse

Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19 – 20a Due: May 10

Little Campbell Salmon Hatchery:

Thank you to the parents who will be joining us on our field trip this Monday.  The students will arrive at the hatchery at 9:30. There will be 3 activities that we will be doing: tour of the site, classroom activity and releasing the fry.  I am not sure what the order is as they will inform us when we get there.  We will be moving as one big group so I will not have parent leaders this time.  If you can please help move the group along, remind them of good listening behaviors during our field trip that would be great. We will have our snack there before returning to school for lunch. Once again, I appreciate your support and let’s pray for good weather!

Tithe:

Your child may come home with a green bank account folder with some money inside. They have saved this purposefully during the week to give to their church.  Please help your child tithe to your church on Sunday!

ICC Week

This week is iCare for the World week at RCS. Throughout the week, the students will be participating in a variety of activities and experiences to build awareness of the needs of the world and how they can help bring God’s kingdom to earth. RCS partners with International China Concern (ICC), an organization that bring love, hope, and opportunity to China’s abandoned and disabled children.

Your child brought home a package of fundraising materials on Friday.  Please read through it carefully. Donors can either give your child cash or a cheque. The envelope and “OFFLINE PLEDGE FORM” must be returned to school, even if no money was collected. Forms and envelopes are due on Monday, April 15, 2019.

To make an online donation, your child will need to set up a personal fundraising page, with parent assistance. Follow the directions outlined on the fundraising envelope. When prompted for a team name, enter 2 CH.

If you have any questions, please contact me. We are looking forward to this exciting week!

Financial Literacy

Dear Parents,

During Math this week, we will be exploring Financial Literacy through play.

Every day for the week, the students in 2CH will be given $1. Students will also be given a bank account (a small-folder) with three pockets marked: tithe, save and spend. For the week, they will be expected to plan, save and spend their money by Friday.

 

Here is what they can spend their money on:

$1 – 5 mins. of extra recess time (up to 15 minutes extra)

They can use their money to spend on extra time everyday.

 

$3 – An art activity with Ms. Chan, Gymnastic lesson with Ms. Hesmert OR Rock climbing wall with Mrs. Bjornson (30mins)

This activity is only available on Friday and will be happening during class time.

 

$0-$5 – Tithe

Students can tithe up to $5.  The teacher will match their tithe with real money so they can offer their tithe to their church on Sunday or contribute to ICC. They will be given the money on Friday, April 12th.

 

Please begin discussing the importance and value of tithing, saving and spending with your child tonight. You may also want to share how your family manages money on a daily, monthly or yearly basis. What are your short-term and long-term goals? How does your family see money and its place for building God’s kingdom? I am positive your child will have many ideas to contribute. We also encourage you to discuss what your child plans to do with their money next week.

Thank you!

Ms. Chan

Library

Please help your child prepare their library bags for Monday.

Bible Memory

By yourself you’re unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped. Ecc 4:12 Due: Friday, April 12.

Spelling

A new sort will come home this week. Test on Friday, April 12.

Chapel Practice – At lunch

Since we have postponed our chapel performance to the end of the month, it has been difficult to use the gym to practice as other classes, who have their chapels in the coming weeks, also need to use the gym and they get priority. So, I plan to take a few lunch periods and keep the children in to rehearse in the gym.  They will still have their lunch and after the rehearsal, I will make sure they have some time outside to play and get fresh air. I am hoping to practice 3 times in the gym before our performance. Dates TBA.  Thank you for your continued support!  If you have any comments or questions about this, please feel free to email me.

Up-N-Coming:

Monday, April 8 – In class field trip: Urban Safari

Friday, April 12 – Big Buddies field trip to the middle school

Monday, April 15 – Little Campbell Salmon Hatchery – Volunteers are welcomed.  Please email Ms. Chan.
