Please pick up your fundraising orders on Monday at 2:45pm in room 10.
The second term awards will be given out Friday morning at our assembly.
Just a reminder that we have a PAC meeting tonight at 7pm in the library.
We are excited to offer two drop in sessions for 3 and 4 year olds with their parents. These sessions are free and interactive. Please join us at one or both of these sessions.
Hopefully the reading challenge has encouraged your child/ren to read for enjoyment, build fluency in their reading, provide family reading time, and encouraged a time to be set aside for homework.
I will start to tally the results later today and see which classes have made it across Canada. There will be more information soon, regarding the reading challenge wind up.
Thank you for helping to support your child/ren with the reading challenge. It has been exciting to see students eager to read and to share their successes with us. We are hopeful that the students and staff are enjoying the adventures they are going on, through the stories that they are reading.
The reading challenge can help to build fluency and comprehension, create a routine for homework, allow students to enjoy a variety of stories, and to work as a team as they travel across Canada. In addition, the students have been learning about the provinces, the capitals, and the symbols of Canada.
Recently I found a site that discussed the importance of reading to your children and I would like to share it with you. Although it is based on reading to children from the ages of 2-5 it also benefits the children at all ages.
1. A stronger relationship with you.
2. Academic excellence.
3. Basic speech skills.
4. The basics of how to read a book.
5. Better communication skills.
6. Mastery of language.
7. More logical thinking skills.
8. Acclimation to new experiences.
9. Enhanced concentration and discipline.
10.The knowledge that reading is fun!
Our reading challenge has been extended to Sunday, Feb. 5th and then all pink and purple papers should be handed in to Mrs. Hartman on Monday, Feb. 6th.
If your child was born in 2012 and is ready to start kindergarten in September please come in and register them. Please bring your child’s birth certificate, care card, and a copy of a utility bill with a 911 address.
