Sept 14-28, 2018 Recap

Hi Class,

I’ve had a wonderful last 2 weeks. We’ve learn a lot, from grouping/estimating Cheerios to creating Coast Salish Art to practicing two of our Core Competency goals. Here are the last two weeks in photo form.

Carole Fullerton, a mathematician, came to RCS to teach us – and the teachers- about Math.

We are sharpening our listening skills and learning what it means to show respect, kindness and support to one another.

In STEM, we learned that it’s not about whether our end result works/doesn’t work – it’s about what we’ve learned along the way.

STEM is all about having the courage to try out our ideas even if we fail. We are also learning how to compromise and respect different points of view.

Story Starts

Hi Class,

Here are the cubes for your stories. Pick two or three cubes at a time and write a convincing problem that will start your story. For example, I chose the ghost + tower.There once was a boy who turned into a goblin at night. His parents locked him up in a tower for fear of the monster that would come out each evening….”

Due Date: Friday
What: 5 story starts (don’t have to be more than 2 or 3 sentences)


Students Not Feeling Well

Hi Parents,

This is just a friendly reminder that if your child is not feeling well or showing the symptoms of illness, please allow them time to recuperate at home. We’ve had a few students come to school with headaches and sniffles while struggling through the day. Rest assured, all missed lessons and assignments will be re-taught and made up when students return in full health. 🙂

Best regards,

Tintin Lam

Deas Island Photos

Hi Parents,

4L had a lot of fun at Deas Island yesterday. We listened to a story called “The Tale of Two Sisters,” learned about the wonderful cedar tree, and built a shelter with the resources we found along the beach. Here are some photos of our time together.

Nova Foods & Tuesday’s Deas Island Field Trip

Hi Parents,

I just wanted to draw your attention to two items:

I’ve sent home an order form for Nova Foods today in the Friday Folders. I apologize for not getting it to you sooner. I was supposed to pass it on to you in person during Tuesday’s Meet the Teacher’s session but in the bustle of things I forgot. I hope it’s not too much of an issue.

For our field trip on Tuesday, it is advised that students bring some sturdier outdoor shoes / boots as they might be walking in some muddier areas. The rest of the packing list can be found on the online permission form.





Welcome to a New Year

Dear 4L Parents,

I wanted to take the opportunity to welcome you to a new school year. I am delighted to be your child’s teacher and excited for all that is to come. Please subscribe to this blog to keep up to date on announcements and updates from the 4L classroom.

I’m also looking forward to meeting you at our Meet the Teacher night next Tuesday, Sept 11th at 7pm. Hope to see you then!

In Christ,
