Next week is a BIG one!!!

Monday is a P.D. Day!  Enjoy some time outside if the weather allows OR some PJ and movie time in your cozy homes.  We're back to school on Tuesday and we're hoping everyone is here to practise our Assembly and our "Monster Mash"!  Wednesday is a day with Mrs. Sly for Grade 3s while our Grade 4s enjoy a hike on the Bruce Trail with the Junior Division.  Thursday is a Math Test on Place Value and Rounding.  We've been working very hard on this unit and I know we'll do the best we can!  We 'll have the chrome books for one last round of narrative writing as well.  We're hopeful that we can get these narratives home to you on Halloween Day.  And Friday is our Cooperation Assembly!  The assembly will begin around 1:40 and will likely run until about 3:00.  We've put together a fun skit and song for you and we're super excited!  Don't miss a wink next week!  We have lots of exciting things on the go!!!

Halloween has entered the portable!!!

We've been brainstorming ideas for a Halloween narrative in our Writer's Notebooks!  We visualize a scene in our minds with the lights glowing and the Halloween sounds playing.  We sketch the scene and then we label it with nouns and adjectives.  We turn those scenes into suspenseful narratives with super descriptive paragraphs!  We love using the chrome books to do this!!!










We had some fun in the Fall colours......before the snow!!!  AHHHH!

The camping families!





Remember that our turn for the Spirit Assembly is Friday, October 26th at 1:40 until 3:00!  We're working on our very own MONSTER MASH!  Come and join us if you can!  
Check our most recent orange newsletter too for news of our Halloween celebration and "treat teams" on Halloween Day in the portable!

Orange Shirt Day is Monday at Nottawa!





We will be coming together as a school community on MONDAY to commemorate "Orange Shirt Day".  We will be discussing the importance of the orange shirt and how it has come to be an important symbol for inclusiveness and anti-bullying, just like the pink shirt.  Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.  Please click on the link above to learn more about this important day.

Pioneer Life in Upper Canada

Our Gr.3 students have begun learning about Early Settlers in Upper and Lower Canada in the 1800s.  We'll be using the chrome books to study interesting facts about these brave people.  You can have a look at this website with your child at home too if you wish!
