Dear Families,

I can’t believe this is my second last BLOG POST of the school year!!  I have thoroughly enjoyed communicating our news and learning with you all (my students’ families).  I thank you for being a regular follower and supporting your child’s learning (E.g., by asking them questions about their week) and reading my thoughts.  It has been a true pleasure writing these posts each week as I get to reflect upon all the neat things we're doing as a class, this brings me immense joy too! 

Thank you to the families who sent in their RSVP for our Poetry Cafe.  Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday at 11:45 a.m.!  Please remember to sign in at the office with Mrs. Metheral :)   

King’s Wharf Theatre:
What a wonderful production of Cinderella’s Panto!  If you haven’t had the chance to see it, and may have the time to, I highly recommend this show!  It was beautifully done, and hilarious!  I loved how interactive it was, the whole audience got involved – ask your child how J In addition, we had some Nottawa students who had the opportunity to go up on stage to join “Buttons” to lead us all in a song. It was so FUN!  Thanks to students who dressed up in character for the performance!

Earth Rangers:
On Tuesday, we had the pleasure of the Earth Rangers visit our school for students in grades 1-6.  Earth Rangers is a kids’ conservation organization.  They believe that children care deeply about animals and the environment, so this program gives them information and tools they need to take action and make a difference.  The presentation gave us all an educational and interactive experience featuring live animals who hovered right over our heads!!  Ask your child about the animals we saw!

Character Education & Spirit Assembly:
On Friday, we celebrated June's character trait of the month – Responsibility!  Congratulations to Carson and Aidan for demonstrating this more consistently in their behaviour and school work.  Keep doing your best over the summer months to be responsible for your belongings, schedule, and helping out around the house.  I’m sure your parents would appreciate this!  You’re hard workers, so I know you can do it!

A big thank you to Mr. Morin for leading my class in a glow stick dance at the beginning of the assembly!  We appreciate your support, always J  The kids were buzzing with excitement to get up there and perform!

Thank you Faith for working so hard on your medieval times project.  You did an outstanding job planning, designing, and constructing a castle!  It turned out great!  Your peers and I really enjoyed your presentation and learned lots from you.  Keep working hard on all your projects that you do!

Carson has been a very dedicated, independent, and diligent student who has a keen interest in building, designing and constructing structures.  He produced a unique playground and linked this activity to various parts of our learning this school year, namely: 3D figures, measurement (area and perimeter), procedural writing and science (strong & stable structures).  He skillfully shared his knowledge and understanding across these subject areas and did a wonderful oral presentation with the class!  Way to go, Carson!
