May…

  • Warmer weather means that we’re investigating bugs and insects! Earlier in the week, the K3 students discovered tiny bugs and caterpillars outside right before our butterfly larvae arrived.  The students are incredibly curious and interested in the specimen and came up with these observations and wonderings so far…

  • May sight words: said, big, be, like, are  Two bonus words: that, not.  Feel free to have your child play “I spy” for these sight words when reading, playing, etc.
  •  In the past, the May field trip was a school bus ride to Minoru park to release our butterfly specimen.  This year, we are modifying the butterfly release field trip to a neighbourhood walk to the Railway Walkway to release our butterflies.  The consent will be sent in the upcoming week.  If the weather does not cooperate, we will cancel the field trip.  Thanks for thinking ahead!
  • May calendar will be emailed to you shortly…
  • Scholastic orders were sent home this week.  If you still have the Christmas gift coupon, please use it on this order.  The coupons expire this June.  Please place all orders by the end of next week.  Thanks!
  • Class and whole school panorama photo is scheduled for May 6th.
  • Library will be closed in June!  Help your child remember to return library books to maximize their opportunities to borrow quality books!

Other notes…

  • If you’ve a bunch of tissue boxes sitting in storage, would you mind kindly donating a box to our classroom? We need 2-3 more boxes to make it to the end of the school year.  Thanks for your generosity!
  • Tomorrow’s chapel is cancelled due to scheduling conflict.  Our chapel performance is next week with a Mother’s Day theme!  Please come to encourage and support your child’s gift to you!  I will email information about Chapel attire (students will help me decide tomorrow…)
  • The June field trip is (tentatively) set for Friday, June 14th from 11AM-2PM.  It requires your help to drive and accompany us to Iona Beach Regional Park.  More information will come along with a final home project that we will use at the field trip.  All three kindergarten classes will attend this trip at the same time.

Prayer…

  • Thank you for your encouragement and prayers for my trip to meet my daughter.  It went smoothly and it was an invaluable experience.
  • Pray for students to enjoy the process of practising and performing something close to their hearts.  Pray for any nervousness or anxiety to be settled as we do it together.
  • Pray for administration and staff as we do end-of-year tasks: for wisdom, insight and time management to get it all done before Summer!
