Our new school year is off to a great start!
Happy Birthday to Jacob - August 2
Alia - August 11
Yan - August 20
(We celebrate our July birthdays in June)
Your child has been working on remembering to bring their "Froggy Bag" to school everyday.
The canteen will be open next week. If you would like your child to have a canteen card, please send ten dollars to the office. You can limit the items that you want your child to purchase if you wish. (For example - milk only, or treat on Friday)
The first Scholastic Book orders went home last week. If you would like to order books please return the forms along with your cheque by Friday, September 12.
Your child brought home a "Summer Memories Bag" on Friday along with a letter explaining the assignment. Please return it to school some time this week. We will be sharing a few bags each day.
We have a class pet - a guinea pig named Muffin. The children can share a small bit of their snacks with her if they wish. She eats almost any fruit or vegetable, so a baby carrot or one grape to share is plenty.
A parent handbook and information folder was sent home on Friday. Please return the needed forms to the office ASAP.
We have spent the first few days of school getting to know each other and learning the daily routines. We have 20 children in our class - 14 grade ones and 6 grade twos. We start each new day, sharing with our Care Buddies and then we all meet together on the carpet for songs, devotions and prayers. Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, anecdotes or just want to touch base with me. I am looking forward to spending the new year with your child in my class.
Have a wonderful week.
