NEWS FOR WEEK OF MONDAY OCTOBER 9th - FRIDAY OCTOBER 13th 2017

 Hello Grade 7 Families!

CROSS COUNTRY

Well done to our competitors (Evelyn, Amber, Nadya, Izzy, Michael, Trevor, and Angelo) who showed determination and grit to complete a hard-fought race. Congratulations to Amber and Michael, who each finished first.

I also want to give a shout out to all the volunteers who braved the cold winds of Gary Point (and a handful of rain drops) to cheer on, not only their classmates, but also Grades 2-6 from both St. Paul's and St. Joseph the Worker. It was awesome to see such enthusiasm and support for the runners from all of you. Well done! (no, you don't get a pez, but still, well done.)

GOOGLE CLASSROOM

One month in and the students are using Google Classroom to not only create, complete, and submit their work, but also to receive feedback from myself, comment on that feedback, exchange questions regarding activities with their peers. Well done! With most of the classroom event updates and assignments going through classroom, the frequency of blogging here will decrease.

Parents, hopefully your experience has also been a positive one. If you have any questions regarding Classroom, please let me know!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING - MONDAY (NO SCHOOL)

Enjoy the long weekend with your family!

MATHEMATICS PROBLEM SOLVING WORKSHOP

On Tuesday, October 10th, after first recess, students from UBC's Math Department will be coming to our class to put on a problem solving workshop. Should be lots of fun!

CHOIR

For students Grades 4-7, I will be leading choir this year with Mr. & Mrs. Kelly on Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch recess. If you love to sing, please come join us!

Have a great week.

Mr. Kirkham
