Wednesday Reminders

 Good afternoon everyone!

We had a bit of a chaotic afternoon organizing our classroom supplies and hearing all about the exciting extra curriculars available to Grade 5's this year! Therefore, we ran out of time to properly write in our agendas so I told the students I would write a blog post reminding them of everything going on.

To Bring Back to School:

-Volleyball permission form (the pink paper), the schedule is yours to keep!

-Cross country permission form (white paper), again schedule is yours to keep

-Birthday pictures with full name, grade and birthdate on the back

-The forms in the envelope need to be filled out and brought back to school in the same envelope please!

Please have all forms returned by Friday if at all possible!


-PE tomorrow, please wear gym strips under uniforms

-Friday walkathon and Grade 7 leadership assembly


Day 2 of Grade 5 was a great success!

Any questions or concerns please feel free to send me an email!

Enjoy your evenings, 

Ms. Haughian 

First Week of School!

 Dear Families of Grade 5, 

I had such a great day meeting the students of Grade 5. I couldn't help but compliment them on their ability to work cooperatively on a problem solving task. They made marshmallow castles and worked with their group to create the tallest one. Our winning group created a structure that was 35 cm high. It was a great accomplishment considering the sticky materials we had to work with. We finished off our morning together with a read aloud of What Matters, a picture book that pairs very well with our theme for this year, Care for Everyone in our Common Home. We discussed what this looks like in our community and related it to our book. Each student was then given a small card to write something that matters to them which will be displayed on one of the bulletin boards in the classroom.
