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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
