Grade 4's blog

Week of Sept. 12 - 16, 2016

Hello Grade 4 Families,

It was a wonderful week to reconnect with the students again!  I'm so pleased with how the flexible seating is working out in class.  The students enjoy the freedom of choosing a spot that best suits their learning style, and I like that they get to work with different classmates all the time.  The round tables allow the students to collaborate, work together, and help each other.  Next week, the students will also have more responsibilities in class.  They've all have a classroom job for the week, so ask your child what they are responsible for!

Here are the reminders for the week:

Monday:

  • PE class with Mr. Kelly
  • Cross-Country forms due today
    • practice after school from 3:00-3:45pm
    • If practice ever needs to be cancelled due to rain, Mr. Kelly will post that information on the PE and Music blog by 12noon for that day...please check the blog regularly
  • Birthday picture due today

Tuesday:

  • PE class with Miss Tang
  • Cross-country practice from 3:00-3:45pm

Wednesday:

  • No PE today
  • Dismissal at 2pm

Thursday:

  • PE class with Miss Tang

Friday:

  • Assembly by Gr. 6 (everyone is welcome)
  • no PE class today

Walkathon pledge sheets went home yesterday.  Please have your child start calling their relatives and family friends for their support!

 

Enjoy the weekend!

Oops!  If some of you read my blog earlier, I wrote "Hello Grade 2 Families"...it's taking me a while to adjust!  Sorry!  (Thanks to Mrs. Jeffrey for pointing this out.  I must have called the kids "Grade 2" at least 10 times this past week.  You should hear the kids' reactions!!!  Hahaha).

 

Welcome to Grade FOUR

Dear Grade Four Families,

I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer!  I'm looking forward to seeing the students tomorrow at 8:45am!  I pray that this year is filled with new adventures, new friendships, and new experiences.  With the new BC curriculum in full implementation this year, there will be new changes in the way students learn.  Let's work together to make this a successful year for all of us!

Top 5 reasons why tomorrow will be an exciting day:

  1. The students are coming upstairs to the intermediate grades
  2. They will be the "big buddies" for the first time
  3. Our classroom is very different....I'll get them to tell you all about it when they get home
  4. They can reconnect with their friends
  5. You get to send them back to school...FREEDOM for you again (Haha)

Here are the reminders for the week:

Tuesday:

  • 8:45am - 12 noon
  • Bring all school supplies if you didn't order from EduPac
  • Bring a pocket snack for recess
  • ALL STUDENTS need to bring a pencil box or pouch (it was not included in the basic package with EduPac)
  • Homework: label all markers, pens, and pencil crayons with initials or names

Wednesday:

  • bring a box of tissues
  • Dismissal at 2pm

Thursday:

  • students will meet their "little buddies" 
  • regular day...dismissal at 3pm

Friday:

  • Walkathon assembly at 9am...everyone is welcome to attend
  • regular day...dismissal at 3pm

P.E.

  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays
    • wear gym strip under uniform
    • bring gym shoes in a gym bag to keep in the locker for the school year

Mr. Kelly will start teaching P.E. sometime this week, but he's still finalizing the plans.  I will inform the students when they will have P.E. once I know, or check the PE blog.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please make an appointment to see me or email me at gimoo@stpaulschool.ca 

See you bright and early tomorrow!

 

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Imoo
