Week of February 20 - 24

 Hello Grade One Families!

 What a busy week we had in Grade One last week! The students are showing so much development in their desire to work independently and share their knowledge with each other. This week they will work in small groups to create their own community. Each group will design a community, develop laws for their community, and decide on ways that the people in their community will work together and help each other. I am very excited to see their ideas come to life!

 Hopefully you all received a blue sheet on Friday informing you about our field trip to Science World with the Grade Four class on March 7. If you haven't seen it yet, please look in the front pocket of your child's agenda book. We will need a few parent volunteers. Please note that we are unable to accommodate parent volunteers on the school bus, so if you would like to help supervise this field trip, you will have to meet us at Science World. 

 I will be attending a conference out of town from Thursday February 23 until Sunday February 26. If your child is not able to attend school, please e-mail Mrs. Ong at the school office. Mrs. Somers, who was with the students last Wednesday, will be teaching Grade One on Thursday and Friday this week.
