Hello 3K Families!

It’s hard to believe that we are almost at the finish line! Students have been reminded to “run their race” well, going at their pace to meet their goals. Please read the newsletter (our last one of the year) for important announcements!

An important note – On Wednesday, June 12th, your child will be taking home their Core Competency Self-Assessment. The Core Competencies (Communication, Thinking and Personal/Social) describe proficiencies that students need to develop in order to succeed in learning and in life. Please take time to show interest in, read and celebrate your child’s self-assessment. Focus on their strengths, rather than their weaknesses. For more information about the Core Competencies, please visit https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/competencies.

Thank you for your partnership in Grade 3 this year!

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on June 4, 2019

Hello 3K Families,

Just a reminder that we will be heading to Richmond Nature Park tomorrow to think like a scientist and investigate another local ecosystem. We will be leaving RCS at 12PM. Please ensure that students:

– Are dressed appropriately for the weather (sunscreen, comfortable shoes, possibly a light jacket)

– Pack an easy to eat lunch & a full water bottle

We’re looking forward to a wonderful learning opportunity outdoors!

Clothe Yourselves

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 24, 2019

Clothing is worn to cover the body. In Colossians 3:12, we are told to “clothe [ourselves] with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness & patience”. This is not always easy. We need to cover ourselves in God’s love and grace as we approach every situation. We replace pride with humility, harsh words with gentleness and anger with compassion. When we rely on His strength in all things, we show others what it means to be a follower of Christ. What “clothes” did you put on today? Please continue to have this conversation with your child at home.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Please take a moment to read through the newsletter for important announcements!

Have a great long weekend!

God the Creator

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 10, 2019

Hello 3K Families!

As we launch into our study of nature and biodiversity, we need to be careful about what we read and believe. Many science books will talk about different ideas about how the world came to be. As Christians, it’s important to measure things up with the Bible. What does God’s Word say? Does this fact align with God’s truth? Isaiah 40:28 says, “The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the Earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.” We can not begin to understand all that God is and everything about His creation. We can only have faith that what He says is true. Please continue to have this conversation with your child at home.

Please read through the information on the newsletter for important announcements, spelling words and the memory verse. Have a great weekend and have a Happy Mother’s Day!

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

By His Wounds We Are Healed

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 26, 2019

Hello 3K Families,

We had another busy week in 3K! The students did a wonderful job hosting Grandparents and Grand Friends on Wednesday and enjoyed a wonderful field trip to Burns Bog on Thursday. There are a few photos under “Fun in 3K” that gives you a peek into those events.

In our Devotions, we have been reflecting on what Christ has done on the cross. Because of the suffering he endured, we are able to experience His love, joy and peace. All we need to do is accept Christ’s gift. Please continue to have this important conversation with your child at home. Please read the newsletter for more information, including instructions in preparing your child for Grade 4. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend! May you reflect on the love of Christ, the power of the cross and the victory of His resurrection! Students will be bringing home an “everlasting” Easter book. They were challenged to share the true story of Easter with someone who needs to hear the Good News! Ask them why the story is “everlasting”.

There are also some photos from our neighbourhood walk posted in “Fun in 3K”. Take a peek at how we thought like scientists and carefully observed the ecosystem in our very own backyard.

Last term, students created advertisements for invented products. Some chose to make posters and others chose to make a commercial. You can watch some of their videos using the following links (Note: videos are unlisted and can only be viewed with the link):

Kaitlyn

Pizza Product

Kevin & Titus

Alex & Isaac

Caden & William

Evangeline, Hana & Allyza

God Bless,

Non-Fiction Books

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 17, 2019

Hello 3K Families,

The students have been working hard on their Non-Fiction books. Our goal is to have most books finished by Thursday, April 18th. A few reminders:

  • Students are taking the time and effort to do their best. So, if they need more time to finish, they can talk to me about having more time.
  • Some students chose to take their books home to work on. Please make sure that they do not spend too much time on it. They should still be getting the rest and sleep they need after school.
  • Please remind students to bring back their book each day so that they can continue working on them in class.

Thank you so much for your support! Please send me an email if you have any questions.

 

Building Others Up

0

Posted by mkuo | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on April 12, 2019

Over the past 2 weeks, we have been talking about the importance of words. A few students helped to demonstrate that while toothpaste is easy to squeeze out, it’s almost impossible to put back. In the same way, once we say something, our words cannot be taken back. Therefore, we need to be mindful of the words we say. Does it help to build others up? Or does it hurt others by tearing them down? Ephesians 4:29 commands us to use self-control while speaking, saying “…only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs.” Please continue to talk with your child about this. Have a great weekend!

The newsletter for this week has been posted.
