Week One/Two of Grade 3

 We had a wonderful first week back to school. The children were full of energy and joy. I am so happy to be back at work with the students. 

Today we had a little fun learning about STEM projects... we may have made a few paper airplanes... but shhhh... don't tell Mrs. Moorehead. 

This weekend please:

1. Read 20 minutes a day using Raz Kids.

2. Ensure that the Cross Country forms are filled out and returned for practice on Monday. It will be held at Palmer from 3:00 - 3:45. Pick up is from the covered area at school at 3:45.

3. Walkathon - Pledge forms have gone home, please be sure to start collecting pledges! (Thank you!)

4. Spelling - Our first list has gone home. We will be working with these words in class this next week. 

5. PE - Please check the PE/Music blog for up to date details (there will be an usual schedule next week due to Outdoor Education for the Gr. 7 students).

Have a lovely weekend.

Homework, etc.

 Happy First Full Day of School!

It has been a wonderful couple of days with your children. Today was a day filled with organizing materials and learning classroom expectations. The students were very thoughtful in their reactions to all that was going on in class. What a joy it is to see them maturing so much.

Homework is reading using the Raz-kids app that was set up in June.

Please read for 20 minutes this evening. Your children can also complete the comprehension quiz at the end of the reading as a part of the homework. 

If your child did not know his or her password, they came to see me today. They will be ready to read tonight!

I would like to request that your children bring in a set of headphones for listening to stories in class. They will also need them in music class at times. I will ask that the children keep these in their lockers. You may wish to send them in ziploc bag and label them. Since they will be stored in such a way, please do not send expensive headphones. It would be great if we could get these by the beginning of next week. 

Emeregency contact forms were sent home today. Please fill them out and return them as soon as possbile. 

Have a lovely evening!

Welcome To Grade 3!

HAPPY NEW SCHOOL YEAR!

What an exciting time of the year! We look forward to new adventures, ideas, friendships, and ways of learning.

For most of you, this is your second time having me as your teacher. I am looking forward to getting to know the students again this year and learning about all of things that interest them now that they are older. I feel blessed to be able to spend another year with your children. I am so excited about all of the new things we will be learning and doing. Grade 3 is such an exciting year for students. They are a little more independent, a little more excited about learning and a lot of fun.

Our theme for the new school year is "Care for Our Common Home". There are so many wonderful ways that we will be able to address this theme throughout the year. We will be given many opportunities to grow, care and show love for all that has been given to us. 

Tomorrow is the First Day of School!

We will begin at 8:45 and dismiss at 12:00.

We will have a recess break so don't forget a snack and water. 

Tomorrow night will be busy one for you as the Edu Pac supplies will be sent home for labeling. Please label all pencils, pens, crayons, pencil crayons, books, rulers, and anything else in your kit with your child's name. (I bet they could even label it for themselves...)

Please be sure to label all uniform parts as well. Don't forget to relabel old pieces as well so that they are easy to read. 

PE

Please send your child's gym shoes to school with them by Wednesday and wear your gym strip to school on Wednesday.

Regular PE days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.

This week:

Wednesday 8:45 - 2:00 (regular Wednesday schedule)

Thursday 8:45 - 3:00

Friday 8:45 - 3:00

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. If you need an immediate response, please contact the office during school hours 604-277-4487 or feel free to email me at jjeffrey@stpaulschool.ca . I do my best to respond as quickly as possible. If an email is sent on the weekend, I will receive it on Monday morning. I'm looking forward to getting to know the parents again as well. With the adventure of the BC's New Curriculum, I am looking forward to great conversations about your child's learning. 

Enjoy the rest of your last day of summer vacation... I'm sure it will be filled with organizing uniforms, shoes, snacks, sleep schedules and all of the other things that September brings.

God bless,

Mrs. Jeffrey
