November 12 Week at a Peek

Dear students and families,

Students can be very proud of their part in our Remembrance Service on Thursday.  Speakers, poppy money carriers and audience members conducted themselves with thoughtfulness and respect.  Remembrance work packages went home with students to stay on Thursday.

Students enjoyed learning how to add widgets to their blogs on Tuesday.  Quite a few virtual pets were adopted.  Everyone can be very proud of their progress!   😀

Trip to Cosmo Industries

We are looking forward to our tour of Cosmo Industries Recycling Education Centre on the afternoon of Wednesday, November 14.

  • The bus leaves the school at 12:35 p.m. and returns in time for dismissal.
  • Do contact me with any questions or concerns.  🙂

  • tools – fact family triangle, number line

Math Class
