Christmas Show 
The Christmas Concert will take place on Wednesday December 19th, 2018.  There will be two identical shows, morning and afternoon, in order to accommodate the community in our small gymnasium. You are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items and/or toiletries for our local food bank.

Due to our fire code regulations, we are asking that families of primary students attend the morning performance at 10:00am, and families of junior students attend the afternoon performance at 1:30pm. For those families that have children in both primary and junior divisions, please choose one performance to attend.

Once the performance has begun, the doors to the gymnasium will close. PLEASE plan to stay for the duration of the program so as not to disrupt the performance.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Technology


We are learning about and embracing technology. Our goal with technology is to support our learning and communicate with parents, other teachers, and other students. Technology will be used daily in our classroom and it will be used safely. Each student must sign a safe use of technology agreement before being allowed to use school technology.


Agenda

Communication between home and school is very important. Agendas will be used regularly to record homework and other messages. Please read and initial your child’s agenda daily. It is also a convenient place for you to jot any messages or notes for me. When your child receives the agenda, please review the first section of the agenda for useful information concerning school routines and policies. Please sign p. 8 once you have read through the information. 


Homework

A monthly homework program will begin in early September. Homework consists of 5 Math questions and tracking reading minutes each month. Please return all homework in the blue folder.


Program Night

Families are welcome to join us for Program Night on Thursday, September 13th from 5:30-6:30pm in the classroom, and 6:30-8:00pm at the Fun Fair.
