What a wet, but good, week we have had! We have been doing lots of review over the last couple of weeks, and are just starting to begin new units in different subjects. I have been reading individually with each of the students, and am excited that we were able to get our Home Reading program started this week. We did our Terry Fox Run on Thursday during our gym class. We had to do it in the gym because of all the rain, but it was great to see the kids try their best the whole time. And a big thanks to all who supported the cause by sending in a toonie. I hope you all have a restful long weekend.

Reminders and Other Information:
- Remember to complete your child’s health check every day
- Planners go home and come back to school every day (we will write spelling words in them at the beginning of the week, please don’t do it at home with your child)
- Don’t forget to bring a water bottle every day – no water fountains available
- Send your child dressed for the weather! I can’t stress this enough – if it is raining they will be outside unless it is torrential downpour – please make sure they have jackets at least … rain boots and umbrellas are also not a bad idea.
- Orange Shirt Day – children may wear orange shirts and casual bottoms – we will talk about why this day is significant in an age-level appropriate way
- Home Reading – make sure you are reading with your child every night – return their book baggie when you have completed 5 days of reading
- Friday Letters – I am excited for this activity that we will do each week – students went home today with a letter they have written for you, and we want you to write them back! This is a great way for them to practice a lot of the skills we are working on (printing, sentence writing, etc). The duotangs will go home every Friday, and need to be sent back with your child on Monday. There is a newsletter explaining this further in your child’s planner today. They are always very excited to read the letter from their moms and dads, so please try to make it a priority to respond to the letter that they write.
