Winter Gear for Recess

This is great weather to be playing in the snow. It is PERFECT snowman and snowfort building snow.
However, with that being said, kids need to come to school with appropriate clothing to be playing in snow. Several students are coming in soaking wet and having to sit in wet clothes during class.
Please make sure that your child is coming to school with all the appropriate winter gear if they are going to be playing in the snow at recess time!

I was absolutely amazed by the performance of the grade three students!!! They definitely rocked the show with their songs about Christmas around the world. The kids put so much hard work into practicing for the concert! It was so nice to see it come together in such a beautiful way!
Thank you to all the parents who came to the concert to show their support!!!

We Are Adopting A Polar Bear!!!

Dear Parents:

Our class is studying polar bears in Language Arts. The kids are learning a lot about how polar bears are becoming endgangered.

I am adopting a polar bear on behalf of our class through the World Wildlife Fund. However, there are kids wanting to bring in a small donation to help out with the adoption. I understand their feeling of wanting to help out so I am willing to let them bring in a loonie or toonie for the adoption. They are not to bring in more than a toonie.

If your child is sending in a donation to help with the adoption please send it in a ziploc bag with their name marked with the title "Polar Bear Adoption" before Dec. 18th.

The kids are very excited about the polar bear adoption. It is a great cause and I am so proud of how the kids want to do what they can to help the polar bears. The WWF will send momentos for the kids to keep to show that they helped save the polar bears.

Christmas Concert Dress

Your child may dress in whatever they like for the Christmas concert as the grade three classes do not have a set dress code.

We would like the kids to dress nicely as it is a special performance night. A good idea for girls is to wear nice a Christmas dress and for boys to wear dress pants and a nice shirt.

Don't forget to bring your camera!

Challenge Question - Dec 8th

How many legs are there altogether in the workshop???
