Another full week in Grade 2! A few highlights for all were: Math Mayhem, playing math games and winning prizes; having a mini party with our Grade 6 buddies, playing games and dancing with them; reading stories about real life events and people from British Columbia for our Reading Across Canada Socials unit; and learning about 2D Shapes, being creative to use as many as they could in a creative picture. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, have some time to rest as we gear up for the last week before Spring Break!

If you have not yet returned your swimming field trip permission slips please do so ASAP! Be sure to indicate if you will be joining us on the field trip. A Criminal Record Check MUST BE completed in order to come to the pool.
We will be leaving at 9:05 sharp, so please be on time, and we will be returning to school about 11:30. Students need to bring swimsuits, towels, and life jackets (if needed). If students come to school already dressed in their swimsuit, please make sure the necessary clothes are packed to change into after swimming.
On Thursday, March 17th, students do not need to bring a lunch. I will be making green pancakes for the students to enjoy as it is St. Patrick’s Day. If your student does not want to participate they can just bring a lunch that day.
The Elementary department is doing $2 donut fundraiser for the school in Guatemala. On Friday, March 18, students can bring $2 to their teacher and at lunch they will receive a glazed donut from Safeway bakery. We have ordered enough for each student to have one donut if they wish.
