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

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!

Dear 3K Families,

Over the past 2 weeks, our memory verse came from Ephesians 4:32 which says: “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you.” As a class we talked about how holding on to anger prevents us from allowing God to bring peace and forgiveness into our lives. We forgive because Christ first forgave us and He calls us to an abundant life rich in His love and mercy.

Please check the newsletter for important updates and announcements including:

  • Christmas Matinee (Monday) & Christmas Performance at the Chan Centre (Tuesday)
  • Donations for Gifts for the Manger
  • Bringing in coat hangers and tinsel
  • Gingerbread Decorating

Have a great week!

There are also some photos from our Science Project last week under “Fun in 3K”. Students planned and created floaters using household materials and tested them to see if they sink or float. Have a great week!
