Upcoming Learning and Goings - On
  • Our first unit in math for the start of 2018 is multiplication and then division. We are learning the relationship between the two operations. If     6 X 4 = 24, then  24 /6 = 4. Practicing skip counting with each number up to 12 helps everyone get familiar with the patterns found in multiplication and division.  (Example  3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18   or  6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36)
  • We are finishing up our science unit on Habitats with our slide show presentations. We are examining how animals adapt to their environment. After that, we will move on to Medieval Times and Ancient Cultures (Egypt, Greece, Rome) in social studies.
  • Our Gym days are still Mondays and Thursdays. We are practicing the different skills for volleyball at the moment. Everyone should have at least a different shirt for gym and some shorts. If it is a nice day out and athletic shorts are on for school, those could be used for gym. But a separate shirt will avoid sweaty children in class. Indoor running shoes are fine for gym. Once the weather returns to reasonable, Mr. Brydie and I hope to take the children outside.  PLEASE REMIND YOUR CHILD THAT THERE IS NO JEWELRY TO BE WORN DURING GYM. NO BRACELETS, EARRINGS, NECKLACES. THIS IS A BOARD-WIDE POLICY DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS.
  • Our library swap out day is Friday with Ms. Cook. Everyone gets 2 weeks to read their book(s).

This website contains links to external websites. When accessing these sites, please be advised you are leaving the HDSB.ca domain. The Halton District School Board (HDSB) is not responsible for the content, policies, omissions, or any issues which may arise when accessing external websites. 

           To the left are some sites which should help students who have nothing to do on a rainy (or snowy) day and who want to make school easier with a little extra practice. These links provide quick access to many of our weekly and/or daily sites we would visit.
           If there are any classroom questions or concerns, please email me through   wrightg@hdsb.ca   I will do my best to get back to you quickly. 
            Sign up for School Cash Online, as last year's Cashless system we were using is no longer. 
           Everyone is dressed warmly for the snowy weather, which is great. A reminder as the temperature bounces up and down on a weekly basis that little feet get wet very quickly when the weather is sloppy. Proper boots in the morning ensure break times are fun and dry. Any missing clothing might be waiting in the Lost and Found lockers located beside the office. Have a look.
           I remind all boys and girls to wash their hands before snack and lunch times. Flu and cold season is here. A little bit of soap and water should keep the germs away.
New Year's New Business :
         Holidays are all done. 2018 and January are here! 
         Thanks for the many well-wishes as Mr. Wright has returned to guide the 4-1 spaceship through to the end of the year.  Ms. Perugini said she would miss the students and I thanked her for keeping us stay on course while I was away.
         We still have lots of amazing subjects to cover in a relatively short time.  If you see or feel there are any issues that you are noticing at home, please let me know.
