Library Bag

We will have Library on Monday. Please make sure your child brings their library bag.

TERM 3 HOME READING GOAL

2H students did a great job of home reading in Terms 1 and 2. Before Spring Break, most students were able to meet the personal reading goal they set.

For Term 3, your child has set a new home reading goal. If your child reads the minimum of 15 minutes a day for the next three months, they will be able to achieve the class goal of 1100 minutes. Some children have decided to challenge themselves and set a higher goal. Each student’s goal is written on the front of their agenda. Students know that they MUST record their home reading on the blue log sheets in their agenda.

Here’s how you can help your child develop a daily habit of reading and recording:

– Set a regular time for reading
– Provide a timer
– Add up the minutes each week to monitor progress
Midway through the term, I will ask you to help add up the minutes to see if your child is on track to meet or exceed their goal. Thank you for your assistance to develop routine and discipline in your child’s daily reading.

ICC Week

This week is iCare for the World week at RCS. Throughout the week, the students will be participating in a variety of activities and experiences to build awareness of the needs of the world and how they can help bring God’s kingdom to earth. RCS partners with International China Concern (ICC), an organization that bring love, hope, and opportunity to China’s abandoned and disabled children.

Your child brought home a package of fundraising materials today. Please read through it carefully. Donors can either give your child cash or a cheque. The envelope and “OFFLINE PLEDGE FORM” must be returned to school, even if no money was collected. Forms and envelopes are due on Monday, April 15, 2019.

To make an online donation, your child will need to set up a personal fundraising page, with parent assistance. Follow the directions outlined on the fundraising envelope. When prompted for a team name, enter 2 H.

If you have any questions, please contact me. We are looking forward to this exciting week!

In-class Field Trip

We have finished learning about animals in science. On Monday we will be visited by a group called Urban Safari. They had rescheduled due to the snow days in February. They will be teaching us about different exotic animals. Ask your child about the program and what they learned.

Buddy Field Trip

The students will be going to the middle school on Friday to visit our buddies. We will be leaving after recess and returning to school for lunch. Please approve your child’s permission slip on MSM if you have not yet done so.
