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!!!

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!
