January 8 week at a peek

Dear students and families,

Fireworks - Macherio 2014

Happy new year everyone!  I hope everyone had an excellent time away from school.  January is an important teaching month with very few interruptions.  I look forward to everyone showing great progress in all subject areas.  However, we will begin gently on Monday . . .  🙂


Finishing up 2017!

We met with our care partners on “Ugly Sweater” day before the break.  Students designed some really nice sweaters together!

Digital Citizenship

We start our study of media this week in preparation for student blogging.  Part of digital citizenship involves safeguarding personal information.  We will discuss password choice in class this week.

This poster from Kathleen Morris at Edublogs outlines up-to-date password guidelines:

A reminder that we will touch on nutrition in health in the new year.  We plan to have a 100 day class lunch celebration involving food and snacks late January or early February.  Students whose birthdays are in the first half of the school year may bring nut free snacks to share at that time (voluntary).


  • We work on our tenth spelling lesson on Tuesday and Wednesday with the spelling tests and assignments due on Thursday.
