Dear Families,
Can you believe we’ve already completed our second week of school after the break?!  It is zipping by!  Not surprisingly for our class though as we’re having so much fun learning and growing together!  Have I shared just how lucky I am to be your child’s teacher?  Being in this position is truly a dream come true for me :) Have a great weekend!
Procedure Presentations:
I’m sure many students came home sharing with you all about the tasty treats they consumed from watching and listening to their peers' procedural writing presentations.  I would like to thank all my families who took the time and energy to work with your child on this and to provide food samples for our whole class.  It meant a lot to us and when we evaluated the recipes, I heard a lot of 10 out of 10 or 5 stars!  Delicious!!  I am proud of my students who took great care in this assignment as it has helped them develop a greater understanding of writing a procedure.  Enjoy the sweet pics!

Dear Families,

It is with an open heart that I wish you all a Happy New Year!!  It was an absolute highlight for me seeing your child's bright, enthusiastic, and warm smile on Monday!  I am delighted to be reunited to continue our journey of learning and growing :) 

I do hope you continue to access my classroom blog weekly as I will continue to provide detailed evidence of what your child is doing at school so that you too can help reinforce these concepts at home. Together we CAN and WILL make a DIFFERENCE in your child's academic progress!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend!  Stay safe on the roads if you have to venture out.  It is quite snowy and icy out there!  
January’s Character Trait: This month’s character trait is HONESTY – “We will always tell the truth.”  I have encouraged my students to always tell me the truth if they're experiencing any difficulty. Being dishonest only makes a problem / concern escalate and get bigger.  I look forward to reinforcing hones…

Dear Families,
It is with a warm and open heart that I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and soon to be a Happy New Year!  I hope you have an enjoyable and safe holiday with all your family and friends.  We all lead such busy lives, but I believe the holidays are a time to stop, listen and think about all the ones we love, cherish and respect.  
I am very blessed to have such caring, loving, and amazing family, friends, and students in my life.  Speaking of students, I will certainly miss seeing your child’s enthusiastic and beautiful smile over the holidays and I am delighted we’ll all be reunited and get back into our daily routine of fun and learning in January!  See you on the 8th.
PJ Day: Thank you to all the staff and students who dressed up in their PJ’s for our movie day to support the leadership team in their initiative to help raise money for the production of Annie this spring.  It was a cozy and FUN day for one and ALL!  Look at all those cozy jammi…

Dear Families,
Winter is officially here!  With the colder temperatures, I am pleased to see that most of my students are dressed cozily and warmly with winter attire (E.g., toque, gloves/mitts, coat, snow pants, neck warmer, etc…).  I am encouraging families to please have your child put in their backpacks an extra pair of socks and mitts/gloves just in case because I have had a few students come in from fitness breaks feeling wet and damp from playing in the snow.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter!


Bus Cancellations:
We have already had our first snow day this week, wowza! I have had a few parents ask me this so I would like to clarify on here too. Please know that if we experience bus cancellations on a particular field trip day, in class visitor, or a concert in our case this week that the event will also be cancelled.  Notice of rescheduling will be given through the agenda the next day and/or the school website.  If you haven't already done so, it is highly encour…
