As you all know, we are off to camp this week on Wednesday. The weather is looking fairly nice for Wednesday and Thursday, but temperatures could still drop quite low throughout each night. As well, we've been told that the mosquitos are in full force out there so please have your child pack some bug spray and coach them on how to use it safely. Long sleeves and pants will also be effective in reducing mosquito bites.
Here is what we are up to on Monday and Tuesday.
Humanities: We are spending our time looking at geographical concepts as well as written language fundamentals. Students should be ready for a check-in on parts of speech when we return after the long weekend.
Math/Science: Students are wrapping up our Olympic Math Question… “Which country performed best at the Olympics?” Students were asked to develop their own criteria to answer this question and to justify/prove their findings with solid mathematical/statistical reasoning. We will be sharing these responses in class tomorrow in order to finish this work before we head to camp.
Electives: Students will be signing up for electives tomorrow using a google form. We've attached the updated electives list.
Emails: Over the summer, we transitioned to a new email server and have apparently had some challenges sending and receiving emails. We think we have it figured out, but if you send us a message and don't receive a reply within 24 hours, please send it again in case something has gone wrong.
Welcome back! We hope you all had a restful summer. Here are some reminders for events occurring this week.
Thursday, August 25:
Meet The Teacher (4-8pm). The Grade 7 presentations are scheduled for 4pm and 5:30pm - more detailed info will be emailed from the school.
We will be sharing our Meet The Teacher information digitally after the presentation, so if you are unable to attend you will still have access to it.
Friday, August 26:
Noon dismissal - Details about Natasha’s Celebration of Life have been sent out by the school.
Saturday, August 27:
Camp Sweet Work Bee
Reminder: We head out to Camp Sweet on Wednesday, August 31 and return Friday, September 2. Forms have gone home already; please return those as soon as possible. We are still looking for volunteers if you are able to join us.
Technology Forms: Technology forms need to be reviewed and returned by the end of the week.
Please let us know if your contact information has changed over the summer.
