November 27 week at a peek

Dear students and families,

It was terrific to meet with parents and students at our 3-way conferences on Thursday and Friday!  Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to make time for a conference!  Students, thank you to those of you who have already returned your progress report envelopes.  I hope the last few will make it back this week so we can reuse them for the next reporting period in March.

European Heritage Days 2017 - Banda da Sociedade Filarmónica Gualdim Pais at Convento de Cristo, Tomar jaime.silva via Compfight

Our grade 6 band students worked very hard this term and will be having their very own concert this Thursday at 7:00 p.m.!  See Mrs. Mckenzie’s email for details about the event.


Learning Games

I’ve found some excellent web-based learning games that complement our studies – particularly math.  We will give some of the math activities a test run this week – links will be provided in another post.  I will add them to the “Learning Links” page as well.

Biography Projects

  • Students who are interviewing a hero – projects are past due – please finish up quickly without sacrificing quality.  Once I approve your rough draft, you will receive your “good copy” to complete.
  • There are still a few biography interview projects that need to be completed.  Let’s get them done by the end of this week


  • We work on our sixth spelling lesson on Tuesday and Wednesday with the spelling tests and assignments due on Thursday.  The names of the spelling lessons will no longer be the same for each group.

Here are this week’s spelling lists:
