Hi Students and Parents,
It’s that time of the year again as we raise donations to support International China Concern. On Friday, we watched a video and heard some stories from Ms. Semke about some of the needs of orphans and abandoned children in China. We were challenged to sacrifice our time, effort, and comfort to help others in need. Our theme in grade 4 is “Give Up to Lift Up.” We hope students will work hard to reach their goals (not only monetary) but take a risk to step out of their comfort zones. The final day to hand in donation forms will be Monday, April 15th.
This is to let you know that the 4L chapel will be on Friday, April 12th. Please mark it down in your calendars. We would be so pleased if you could join us on that day.
This is a friendly reminder that we have our field trip to Fort Langley tomorrow. I’ve discussed how students can prepare for tomorrow in class already, but here is what we talked about for your information.
-Please come on time to school tomorrow. We aim to leave promptly at 8:35am
-If your child is sick/unwell, please all him/her to stay home to rest. The field trip + travel is strenuous, so it’s best to play it safe.
-Dress for the weather. It is forecast to be cold and wet tomorrow.
-Bring a healthy snack and lunch.
We will be back to school at 2:30.
Thanks for your attention.
On Friday, March 8th our chapel theme will be “Incredible Companion” so bring your special friend who has been with you through thick and thin, also known as your favourite stuffy! We will have our annual stuffy toss at the end of chapel.
I’m very proud and excited to invite you to celebrate all the hard work that’s taken place in our class over the last month. We will be holding our Cardboard Carnival(s) during the last week of February. Here are some dates you can look forward to:
Tuesday, February 26th: Trial Carnival from 11:30am – 12:15pm
-4L students and parents will get to test out other classmates’ games.
Thursday, February 28th – Cardboard Carnival for Grade 1’s from 1:15pm – 2:30pm
-Grade 4 student will be running a carnival for Grade 1 classes.
*Parent volunteers are needed to run the prize booth.*
In order to make our celebration enjoyable for the grade 1’s, students are encouraged (but not required) to bring some prizes to contribute to our class carnival. Some items they can bring are:
-gently used old toys (for example: Happy Meal toys, stuffies, trinkets)
-old books (near grade 1 reading level)
Each game booth will be given tickets to pass out to grade 1 students. Students can use their tickets to redeem prizes at the prize booth.
We will be collecting donations this coming week. Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Also, if you would like to volunteer to help during the Grade 1 Carnival on Thursday, Feb 28th, please let me know. Thank you in advance for celebrating with us!
This is a message about Family Groups and School Spirit:
“Let’s celebrate friendship on Valentine’s Day. Dress-up in as much red, white and pink (hats, hair bows, bowties, shirts, pants, dresses, socks and shoes) as possible next Thursday, February 14th. Be creative!”
Just as a FYI, the homework section of the blog has been updated and will (hopefully) continue to be updated in the next month as students will have much more projects and tasks. Your ‘gentle’ guidance in helping students keep track of and schedule their homework and projects is greatly appreciated! 🙂
Term 2 Clubs will start on January 14th. Club lists are posted on the bulletin board between the Computer Lab and Mrs. Snider’s Kindergarten classroom. There have been no changes in club assignments.
