Happy Thanksgiving! Oct 12-16

I hope you were all able to enjoy an excellent Thanksgiving long weekend. We have lots to be thankful for!

I want to start this week by sending a HUGE thank you to all the volunteers we've had come to the different events so far this school year! We started off with Terry Fox, and had our Corn Maze field trip last week. We had lots of fantastic parents come to help at both these events, and we truly can't do these events without you, so on behalf of our class thank you very much!

A Peek at Last Week
We had a blast at the Corn Maze field trip! We were able to explore a rural setting, and the weather was literally perfect!

We also participated in Feed the Bug. A big shoutout to any students that brought food to donate to our food drive. We talk lots about being Bucket Fillers in our classroom, and one of the ways we learned to fill others buckets last week was by giving, so thanks for acting that out! I know the Lethbridge food banks are very grateful for our contributions!

Have a great week, thanks for reading!
