Pizza Box Projects!

We've been having so much fun creating our Pizza Box projects!  Gr.3 students have been creating an Early Settler farmstead and Gr.4 students have been creating a Habitat of their choice from the many habitats that we've studied in class.  Thank you to all parents who have been dollar store shopping or raiding their craft cupboards to send in items that can be used for this fun project!  They'll be coming home soon!  Next up, we'll work on Christmas narratives and we'll prepare for the Christmas Concert on Wednesday, December 12th at 11:30 and 6:30!  Let's hope for good weather! 




Just stickin' this one in here for fun!

Conferences next week!

Hello Gr.3/4 families!

Please give me a big "shout out" in the agendas if you're checking this blog on a regular basis.  I'd like to know if it's something to be continued.  I don't have any pictures this week to share but I will have some next Friday for sure.  We'll be taking some photos of our "Pizza Box Projects"!  We sure have been creative with these projects and we've had a lot of fun too! 

If you have not yet signed up for a conference time, please be sure to visit our school website.  There is a link there where you can quickly jot your name in your preferred time slot.  I look forward to meeting with you and showing you all of the great things your kids have done so far this year.  This will also be a good time to bring up any rising concerns and ways to help your kids if help is needed. 

Poinsettia orders are due next Thursday, November 22nd.  The order forms were attached to the "recipes in a jar" forms and they went home with the youngest and only children of the school.

Plans for our Primary Holiday Concert are underway!  The Dress Rehearsal will be held at 11:30 on Wednesday, December 12th and parents are welcome to attend.  The evening performance will also be held on that same date at 6:30.  The snow date will be Thursday, December 13th.  Stay tuned for more information! 

Hope to see everyone next week!

We remember

We had a beautiful Remembrance Day service today and I'm so very proud of our students for the respect shown.  We are truly appreciative of the freedom we enjoy today thanks to soldiers of the past, present and future.  We will remember them.

Monster Mash!

We had a super fun time getting all "messed up" for our Monster Mash at the October Assembly!  Everyone did a great job learning their boomwhacker parts.  Thank you, Mr. Morin, for working with us on the song.  Thank you to our parents too for finding some old ripped up shirts and helping your kids to prepare for their "mash"!  Great job students!!!








And here's what we created for our school-wide pumpkin carving contest!  Poor witch!!!!!!

Our Gr.4s enjoyed a great hike this week!

Thank you Mr. Plater for organizing a fantastic hike on the Bruce Trail this week for our Junior Division!  We had such a great time!













Back in the portable, our Gr.3s were gearing up and getting ready for Halloween!




Halloween festivities next week begin on MONDAY!  We're going to finish our Halloween narratives and publish them!  We're also going to dress up Flat Stanley for Halloween!  We'll write descriptions of his costume and practise using those "juicy words" we keep talking about in Grade 3 and 4.  On Halloween Day, we'll dress in Orange, Black and Purple and we'll go to the Primary Dance led by the Leadership Club!  Bring a toonie or an item for the Humane Society as a donation for the dance.  Also, check our October newsletter for our Halloween "Treat Team"!  We'll share treats after the dance and we'll watch "The Nightmare Before Christmas"!  Happy Halloween folks!  Stay tuned next Friday for some pics of our monster mash face paint and funky hair.

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!!!
