Hello 3K Families,

As we move towards Off-Site learning, I will no longer be posting updates and announcements through this blog. Instead, everything you will need for Off-Site learning will be found in MS Office 365 Teams starting on Monday,April 6th. You will be receiving a Video Tutorial on how to use MS Office 365 Teams on Monday @ 8:30AM. Today, I will be sending an announcement through MSM with information about what our learning schedule will look like including your child’s Zoom meeting time going forward. If you have any questions, please send me an email. I look forward to supporting you as we navigate Off-Site Learning together.

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

Well Done 3K!

The students in 3K did a fantastic job presenting in Chapel this morning! Thank you to all of the families who came out to support our class! May students continue to reflect on what it means to be a true neighbour. “It’s not about following a set of rules or being kind to those who are kind to you. And it’s definitely not about getting attention or praise. Jesus set the ultimate example of what it means to be a true neighbour. He left his kingdom in heaven to become our earthly neighbour. He served others. He healed others. He humbly put others first. He loved the unloveable. He even died on the cross for us when we were his enemies.” Students were challenged not only to know what it means to be a neighbour, but to show it as well!

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

  • Spelling continues again next week (March 9th).
  • We will not have a memory verse next week. Instead, students are encouraged to complete 2 or more items from our UGM list. Let’s practice being a neighbour to those in need in our community.
  • Students are reminded to complete and return their VIP Book Award on Monday.
  • Students are reminded to return their Math SWYK with a parent signature and corrections. If students would like to show how their thinking has grown in addition and subtraction strategies, they are welcome to take a re-test.
  • Next week, due to a school event, the library will be closed on Thursday after school. Therefore, the library will be closed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday after school next week. Please make arrangements for your children to be picked up at 2:45pm. Library and AR will be open Monday and Tuesday as usual.

Have a wonderful weekend!

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

In 3K, we have been learning that where a person lives changes the way they live. This month, students will begin their research on different First Peoples groups across Canada. They will be finding out about their group’s environment, the ways they met their basic needs (survive) and the ways they lived well in community (thrive). Please help your child bring in information focused on their First People’s group starting next week (Tuesday, February 18th). They can bring in books found at the Library and/or printed from the Internet. Below is the list of your child’s First People’s group. Thank you for your support!

God Bless,

Mrs. Kuo

Haida: Isaac, Kaylee, Karis, Lucas

Inuit: Vania, Jayden, Carter, Cameron

Cree: Kyle, Noah, Olivia, Aloe, Kelsey

Iroquois: Tomori, Vanessa, Marcellus, Ethan

Huron: Shawn, Alex, Ilys, Olivia Le.

Ojibwa: Chloe, Jeremiah, John, Moses

 

Love is an Action Word

On Thursday, students in 3K visited the Union Gospel Mission. During our tour of the facility, we learned about the different programs that UGM runs to help serve the community including: 1) Mobile Mission, 2) providing hot, nutritious meals, 3) a women and families centre, 4) emergency shelter, 5) recovery programs and 6) affordable housing. The students were asked to think about how they, too, could participate in responding to the needs in our city. Here are some ways students can get involved:

  1. Learn & Share: Knowledge is the key foundation for lasting change. Share with others about what you learned at UGM.
  2. Collect & Fundraise: Get together with your classmates and do a drive for personal hygiene items, non-perishable food or clothing.
  3. Donate: Financial gifts will bring hope and restoration to our neighbours in need.
  4. Volunteer: Use your hands, heart and talent to make a difference by volunteering at UGM.

Continue to have a conversation with your child about ways they can care for “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40) in our community. Please read the newsletter for announcements and have a wonderful weekend!

Always Time to Do Good

DEVOTIONS: In 3K, we talked about how there is only 24 hours in a day. There are many good things we can fit into it including riding our bikes, going to the beach, watching a movie, or playing games. However, if we focused first on those things, we would run out of time for the things that are really important (spending time with God or focusing on our priorities). Ecclesiastes 3:1, 12 tells us, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity…be happy and do good while you live”. In 3K, the students are learning to be good stewards of their time. God has given each one of us a job to do and only a certain amount to time to do it. We need to use our time wisely in a way that will bring glory to Him.

Thank you for your continued support. Please read the newsletter for important announcements. Have a great weekend!

Have a great weekend!

God is Doing Something New!

In our Devotions, we have been discussing Isaiah 43:18-19a which reminds us to “forget the former things” and instead, to focus on the “new things” God is doing. In our devotions, we have talked about taking inventory of our lives – discerning between the good habits that God wants us to continue this year and the bad habits God is challenging us to get rid of. Only by the strength and power from the Holy Spirit can our lives be transformed! At the end of the day today, each student was asked to write down a goal that they would like to work on this term. Have a conversation with your child about their goal!

We have a busy week ahead! Please note:

  • Dance week begins! Students will be participating in “Beat Street” classes everyday.
  • I am still looking for a parent volunteer to help bring 5 cups of cooked rice for Tuesday, January 21st.
  • January 23rd is the new date of our field trip to the Museum of Anthropology.
  • Library will be on Thursday when we return from the Museum.

Have a great weekend!
