Week of November 20 - 24

 Hello Grade One Families!

 Last week was very short, but we had fun and the students worked very hard. They are very excited about outer space right now and have many "I wonder..." questions. As part of our inquiry to answer their questions, I introduced them to the app Solar Walk. They loved it! This app provides the students with an opportunity to look closely at planets, the sun, and many other interesting things. I continue to be incredibly excited about the curiousity and interest that the Grade One students have about their world. 

 Thank-you for sending in the family photos. The students speak of their families with so much love and joy!

 This Friday is a dress-down day for the charitable organization Chalice. Through Chalice, St. Paul School supports a foster child named Thomas. This week I will be introducing the students to Thomas through pictures and information that we have about his life and family. Each child is asked to please bring in $2 on Friday. The theme of the dress-down day is Team Spirit! Students may wear jerseys, t-shirts etc. from professional sports' teams, personal teams, or their St. Paul School PE t-shirt instead of their school uniform. 

 As Mrs. Moorehead has already informed you via e-mail, there will be a change to the back parking lot beginning this week. Parking will be very limited. If your child is able to exit and enter your vehicle independently, please use the drive through drop off and pick up on the east side of the school. Please let your child know where to meet their "pick up person" tomorrow - either "in the covered area" or "in the drive through pick-up". I will help them make sure they get to the right spot. Thank-you for your help in making this a smooth process for everyone!
