It was a good week in Grade 2/3. We talked a lot about what it means to be thankful, and things that we are thankful for. We also had a little bit of fun talking about turkeys … turkey’s in disguise, where we would hide if we were a turkey that didn’t want to be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner, as well as lots of fun stories about Thanksgiving. This week we also had an assembly about Healthy Relationships. We read the story “Have you filled a bucket today?” and we talked about what it means to fill verses dip into someone else’s bucket. Ask your child about some examples of each! This week we also had a lockdown drill. This was a bit unnerving for some, especially after the last time this alarm went off. However, despite the nerves, the students all did a great job listening and responding appropriately. I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving long weekend 🙂

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
