The Grade Seven students continue to prepare themselves to enter into the Sacrament of Confirmation in a variety of ways.  One such way is through the service of others.  We will finally begin the Confirmation Service Hours project. Please read the attached letter for more information. 

Due to the short notice, September and October months only require 4 hours in total. If this is a problem, please have your child talk to me. The Confirmation Service Hours recording sheet is found in the Religion Classroom. Students will be briefed on how to complete and submit the form.

Happy Monday! I have posted new expectations of group work in the Google Home Classroom. The post explains that each student (if they chose to work in groups) must submit an original assignment/project not copied from group members. The content, information, and/or ideas may be very similar to other froup members which is to be expected as they should be collaborating and sharing information during class time. The changes are to enusre that:

  1. Each student is responsible for their own learning
  2. Each group member recognizes the importance of the effort they give during group work time
  3. Group work is done at school and not at each others' houses
  4. Groups can still proceed when a member is absent

To Do List

  1. FRENCH: Le Guide Alimentaire presentations (Oct. 25)
  2. MATH: Quiz on Equations lessons 6.1 to 6.5 (Oct. 26)
  3. SCIENCE: Chapter 2 - Cylcles in Ecosystems (Oct. 28)
  4. RELIGION: Journal #4 (Oct. 31)
  5. RELIGION: Question of the Week (Oct. 28)

Reminders

  1. Friday, October 28: Walkathon Assembly
  2. Monday, October 31: Dress Down Day (please see Thursday letter)
