Well done with your chapel today! Here are the videos from our chapel. Enjoy!
Sorry about the very late blog post. 4L will be presenting their chapel this coming Friday. Please arrive to school earlier (8:15) and come directly to our class door. I’ll open up so we can have our props and costumes all prepared.
Many thanks and hope to see you there!
Here are few announcements to draw your attention to:
Maritime Museum Field Trip:
4L will be going to the Maritime Museum in Vancouver on Monday, Dec 9th to learn about arctic exploration. We still require 2 more adult chaperones for the field trip. If you are willing and available to join us from 9am to 1pm, please let me know.
Carolling at Aberdeen:
We will be carolling at Aberdeen Centre on Thursday, Dec 12th, between 1:30 – 2:30. Please feel free to join us and enjoy the festivities.
We will be having a class party on the last day of school (Friday, Dec 13th). Students are asked to bring something (snacks, drinks, paper cups, entrees, and veggies) to share. Please confirm with your child by writing your dish/contribution into your child’s planner.
Thanks for your attention. I look forward to an awesome week before the holidays!
During the last couple of weeks before the Christmas break we have a few after school library closures. These are in addition to our regular Wednesday afternoons.
The library and AR will be closed after school on:
Tuesday, December 3rd
Thursday, December 12th
Friday, December 13th
Please arrange for your child to be picked up at 2:45pm on those days.
Last day of Term 1 Clubs is this Friday, November 29th.
Term 2 Clubs start on January 13th.
Term 2 Switches:
Starting next Wednesday, Dec 4th, students in grade 4 will be having music instead of PE. This means grade 4’s will be having music three times a week in the 2nd term.
I’ve had a lovely time with you all the last few weeks. I’ve especially enjoyed discussing ideas about how to be a peacemaker in our War and Peace Perspectives Unit as well as talking about how to be a better caretaker of creation. Here are some of our highlights in photo form:
Hope you all have a restful weekend.
See you on Monday!
These are the links to help you with the Monthly News: Greta Thunberg pack that is due on Thursday, Nov 21st.
And a bonus video for your own interest:
Here are two announcements sent by the school for your information:
1. Deeper Learning Parent Night
We hope that you will join us on Thursday, November 7th at 7:00pm for our Elementary Deeper Learning Parent Night. This will be an important evening of learning and information that we encourage parents to attend.
We kindly request that you use this link to RSVP. We want to ensure that we have prepared sufficient materials for those in attendance.
Please note that there will be no childcare provided and that the evening is not suitable for children.
If you would like more information about the evening, you can watch this video.
We hope to see you there!
2. Remembrance Day Poppies
This Friday, Chapel will be focusing on Remembrance Day. Each student will be given the opportunity to wear a poppy. These poppies are from the Royal Canadian Legion and a small donation is encouraged for the Legion that supplied RCS with these poppies. We encourage you to talk with your child about Remembrance Day and its significance. If you desire, please have your child bring a small coin donation for the poppies that they will be receiving on Friday. We look forward to supporting those that have sacrificed in a meaningful manner for our freedoms as we honour our veterans.
