Welcome to our new school year!

Our Grade 3 year together if off to a great start!  Our most exciting project involves "Flat Stanley".  Your kids have created their own Flat Stanley based on the chapter book series of the same name.  Flat Stanley fits very conveniently in an envelope to be mailed anywhere in the world!  Think of someone you know who would happily "host" Flat Stanley and take him on a few adventures.  We hope your hosts will take pictures of Flat Stanley doing something special in the area he visits.  Then we'll ask your hosts to mail him back with his pictures and tell us something about their land and the special things there!  We've been working on our own letters to send to your hosts, explaining the project and asking for help.  It will be very exciting to receive mail back into our classroom and to share all of the many places in the world that Flat Stanley visits!!  We already know that he's going to Australia, Germany and Holland!  Our letters, Stanleys, and envelopes will come home soon for you to mail away and let the adventures begin!

Remember......this coming Thursday the 29th is the Terry Fox Run and out "Meet the Teacher" event. I look forward to running with your kids for a great cause and meeting with you to begin a great year!
