We had a busy week practicing for chapel.
Tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday our class will be practicing chapel from 8:35-9:00. Please try to be at school before 8:30 so that we can have as much time as possible on the big stage in the gym.
On Thursday morning, I will open up the outside door to the classroom at 8:15 for your child and one parent to come in, put their costume on and get settled before we leave for chapel. I will talk to the students about costumes tomorrow and send out an email to inform you. Please pray for health. Some students are sick and I started fighting a cold on Friday night.
As spring time is here, the weather can be unpredictable. Cold in the morning and hot by the afternoon. Please support your child in making sure they have layers on. A T-shirt under a sweatshirt, as an example. This way, they can take off layers when they are warm or put layers back on when they are cold. Thank you for your help at home!
After coming back from spring break, I introduced the students to class jobs. Our class is really getting the idea of caring for our room. At the end of each day, students are busy cleaning, tidying and sorting our classroom space to make it spotless for the next day. I hope you see the fruits of this labour at home as well!
iCare for the World Week began this week. We talked about the different sacrifices that we can make for International Child Concern (ICC). We also discussed how Jesus sacrificed his life for us as an example of how we can help others. A reminder that the donation envelopes should be returned tomorrow.
Grandparents day is coming up on Wednesday, April 24th, from 8:45-11AM. Some students brought home their invitations already, the rest will go home this week as they get finished. If grandparents are not able to make this occasion, a grand-friend can come in their place.
We will be holding our Mother’s Day Tea on Friday, May 10 from 1:30-2:45. This is a special time for you and your child, so please find alternate arrangements for younger siblings. More information regarding Mother’s Day Tea to come. Please send me a picture of you and your child as we create a special surprise for you.
Thank you to Tyler’s parents, Ian and Shindy for coming to share with us this week. Tyler also has an older brother Gavin who is in Grade 3. We learned that their family ancestry is from China and the Philippines. They love traveling to Legoland In California and have been to the Disney resort in Hawaii. Both Shindy and Ian work for a mining company. Their family attends Tapestry Church where they enjoy greeting at the door and going to VBS.
Message from Ms. Huber:

Have a good weekend!
