Grade and Classroom Updates and Announcements

  • Updates for the Fall Term!

    Looking into October....

    Hello Parents!

    We are coming into the end of September and excited about starting our first big units of study.   A few things to keep in mind:

    ~ We will be sending home nightly homework and notices, so please continue to check your child's backpack nightly for any important changes. Permission slips and field trip forms are often time sensitive and it helps us out if all documents to be signed are returned quickly :) 

    ~ We will be having a Parent Workshop towards the end of October on Parent Tuesday, and we welcome all parents to come in for help or questions.  Literature will be sent home regarding the topic. 

     ~ Our first field trip is scheduled for October.  Because of bus space limitations, we are able to bring a maximum of 2 parent chaperones per class during a trip.  Let your child's teacher know you are interested. Parent chaperones that come along must help the whole classroom in bus travel, and navigating  the students safely in the field trip areas.  Preferably parents need to be able to communicate with the students in order to help them safely throughout the trip,. 

    ~ As always, if you have any questions or need to communicate with your child's teacher, please email their school email or contact them on the Parent Dojo Portal. If you are still having trouble connecting with your child's teacher, please let them know.  We love having our parents look in on Dojo to see what we are up to in class!

    As well, here are some important dates to remember:

    SEPT 30–OCT 1 Rosh Hashanah (Schools closed)

    OCT 9 Yom Kippur (Schools closed)

    OCT 14 Columbus Day (Schools closed)

     

    Here's looking forward to a great fall!
