    Dear Parents:

    As part of our Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 7th, EBWS would like to continue the tradition of reading the Roll of Honour. This is where we display the names and photos (if possible) of relatives of our BW families who have served in any branch of the military, for any nation, at any time. Please send the names and digital photos to Mr. Shilling (kevin.shilling@rdpsd.ab.ca) by Monday, November 6th at the latest if you wish to have them viewed at the ceremony. If we have your names and photos from previous years, there is no need to resend them.

    As well, we are asking any students who belong to service clubs or youth organizations (Brownies, Cubs, Junior Forest Wardens) to wear their uniforms on the day of the Ceremony. They will be acting as our Honour Guard at the Gym doors.

    Today in Math we went over the following...  Calendar:  two days from now, it'll be..., one week from today will be...  (same day of the week, add 7 for the date), two days ago it was... Representing numbers using tens (dizaines) and ones (unites).  We're learning about place value by having a column for tens (popsicle sticks) and a column for ones (buttons).  Ones on the right, tens on the left.  In music, we listened to a composer by the name of ________________.  The piece we listened to was a waltz (3 beats per measure), on what instrument was this piece performed?  The composer lived over _____ years ago.  The music activity involved using a ___________.  (answers:  Frederic Chopin, piano, 200, parachute).  Homework for this week:  feel free to quiz your child on calendar questions 5 minutes a day.  Try using French vocabulary for the days of the week.  Ex:  What is the last day of October?  If October 31st is a Tuesday, what would be the first day of November?  Today is the ___ of October, what will be the date in ____ days.  Today is the ___ of October, what was the date ____ days ago.  Etc.

We are learning how to have Growth Mindset. I learned:

To build strong neural pathways I participate.

To build strong neural pathways I practice.

To build strong neural pathways I persevere.

To build strong neural pathways it takes time and effort.

To build strong neural pathways, I know mistakes are good and part of learning. 

To build strong neural pathways, I can ask an expert for help

" The best thing we can do is to teach children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning.”

Wilson Ways                                        

Be Respectful
I demonstrate respect for myself, for other, for learning, and for property.

Be Responsible
I am responsible for my actions and for my learning.  I arrive at school ready to learn.

Be Resilient
I try to solve my own problems before asking for help.  I know that it is okay to make mistakes, and I learn from the mistakes I make.
