WELCOME BACK!

I hope everyone had a terrific summer holidays, however, the time has come to say goodbye to summer holidays, and hello to a new and exciting school year! September is hands down one of my favourite times of the year. It was so great to see all my returning students, and meet all my new students last week. I also am excited to connect with parents, and kick off a great 2015-2016 school year.

This year I will be using the blog to share important information, pictures and updates of what is happening in our classroom and school. I encourage you to check back weekly to see whats new in Grade 1-2!
In the Important Information section above I have added some tips and information that will be helpful throughout the year. Please check it our when you have a moment.

Here's to a great year!
