April 16 week at a peek

Dear students and families,

half winter/half spring? (north of the Broadway Bridge this weekend)

Do you think spring weather is coming soon?  Students, do remember to dress for the weather each day as we continue to experience weather from all seasons.  Hopefully, we will see a warm up over the next few weeks.  🙂

Our class continues to prepare for performances over the next few weeks:

  • Wed., April 18 a.m. – gr. 6 band students perform at the music festival (see information from Mrs. Mckenzie for more details)
  • Wed., April 25 (about 11:15 a.m.) – our class and Mr. Wihak’s dance performance – We hope families will be able to join us.  Students have worked very hard and it promises to be a memorable performance!  Students, please remember to wear suitable black clothing for this performance.

Here are some very brief curriculum updates:

  • Language Arts/Social Studies:  mapping skills (Atlas, Canada, world), latitude/longitude, first contact/perspective with novel study Morning Girl
