Grade 7 Terry Fox Run: October 3rd in the afternoon. Donations can be made at http://www.terryfox.ca/ConnectCharter.
Community Helpers: Our Community Helpers Program begins tomorrow. Ask your child about the first lesson.
Humanities: This week we are beginning to explore determining historical significance. We will be looking at the four guideposts of historical significance using both student and teacher generated examples. Be sure to ask your child this topic as it may lead to some interesting discussions. We will also continue our focus on fundamentals of language.
Math/Science: A letter was sent home on Friday regarding FreshGrades. If your child didn’t provide the letter, (a few were in the recycling box) please review the attached file. This will be an important assessment tool we are using this year in M/Sc and you will be receiving an email this week inviting you to view your child’s portfolio. Our focus this week in Science will be on the very early stages of planning for and designing a bridge as part of the SW leg of the Calgary Ring-Road. After acquiring some background information on the ring-road we will begin to learn about different bridge types, along with internal and external forces acting on bridges. In Math, students will be given a variety of probability problems to follow up on the Monty Hall problem provided last week. In Grade 7, we will explore multiple events such as the odds of getting a heads from a 2-sided coin and rolling a 6 on a die simultaneously.
