Fall is Upon Us - September 21-25

We had an excellent turnout for Friday's Pancake breakfast. It was great to see everyone at school bright and early, enjoying breakfast with their family!

This week we will welcome the new season of fall. What a beautiful time of year, and due to some intense wind over the weekend, we will see an abundance of leaves on the ground too!

Week at a Glance

We are still encouraging students to bring in a special book from home to share during read aloud time this week. Students are welcome to read the book to the class themselves, or sit beside me as I read it.
In math we are working on patterns, and are also beginning our unit on shapes. Feel free to observe shapes and patterns in the world around us with your student at home.
We are also reviewing our letters and sounds as we begin our printing books. Students will be going over proper letter formation, and putting letter/sound knowledge to use each day. We also go over upper and lowercase letters, and the proper time to use these.

Permission forms for Terry Fox went home last week, please return those ASAP. I will be confirming with anyone who signed up to volunteer later this week.
Please check your child's agenda for notes and info every night. Students will receive stickers for parent signatures starting this week. There will also be another permission form coming home for our first class field trip to the Lethbridge corn-maze.

Terry Fox Run - This is the special 35th annual run, and we are joining with other schools at Henderson Lake to participate! This is a great time for us to get out and exercise, build community, and pay tribute to one of our national hero's. As part of Terry Fox day we are having our first school Spirit Day. Students are encouraged to wear red and white today!
