Term Four:  Week 1:  Monday 22 October - Friday 26 October 2018:

What a fabulous weekend to have an extra day.  Weather has been fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed it all.  Saturday gardening, Sunday Long 8 rowing on lake followed by more gardening and Monday a lazy day.  Great to have Doug back at the helm!!  Was fabulous working with Steph and I know she thoroughly enjoyed the experience of stepping into his shoes for a term.

We have been practicing our athletics this week and will continue with this next week before our Clyde School Sports next Wednesday.  We hope this will go ahead as we are booked into the Science Roadshow on Thursday.
 
The Thyme Festival is back on and we have students registered to work with some artists.  A note is being sent home on Monday for permission as well as parents who can take the students in and bring them back to school.  Thank you for the offers of transport.  Classes run from 9:30 - 12:00. and students are asked to take a shirt to keep themselves clean.

N.B:  Have been informed that we have double booked...  On the 31 October we have our athletic sports and one artist has a session that same morning.  If your child still wants to go - that is fine and they will be dropped back to the sports for the afternoon session.  I will talk to all the students involved on Tuesday.  

First week back will have students getting back into the rhythm again with story writing through to publishing for Seesaw.  Look out for your child's story being read to you.

A reminder to students that Prodigy, Studyladder and Mathletics are all learning sites for your child to visit if they do not have learning to do at home.

Also a reminder about Spirit of Clyde awards are due in this term.  Time to complete these.  When signed off, they need to give their form to Miss L.

Smoothies start again this term.  Each Wednesday, $3 each.

Mrs Annan will continue to work with Kiwi on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 11:30 - 12:30.  She has an exciting programme for Kiwi and will allow me time to work with Year 8 students on Panto.
