    Student Math tests went home today.  Please sign and return it by the end of the week.  The Terry Fox Run Run and Assembly takes place Thursday @ 2:15 and all the grade 2's will be singing a song.  Don't forget to wear RED and WHITE.  We are collecting toonies for Terry this week.  I wonder how much money our class can raise for Terry?  Orange shirt day is Friday.  Wear an orange shirt if you got one.

    Today, the Earth Rangers came to our school for a presentation.  Here are some questions you can discuss with your children if you so choose...

    What is climate change?  Who is affected by climate change?  According to scientists, climate change is occurring 10 times faster than ever (true or false).  What color is the snowshoe hare in the winter? (white in the winter, brown in the summer, why?)  What are some things you can do in your everyday life to reduce pollution? (3 R's, reduce water use, reduce electricity, car pool, being less wasteful, etc.)  Where would you find porcupines? (in South America, up in the tree tops).  What was your favorite part of the presentation?  For more information, check out earthrangers.com

    Students were sent home with an agenda today.  The handouts included the following:  

    1) Parent Handbook (keep at home)
    2) Digital Citizenship form (Please go over this with your child.  Sign and return it to school)
    3) Field trip form (Please fill it out and return it to school)
    4) Fundraising envelope (Feel free to do some fundraising.  Return by deadline :)

    We are hoping to use the "petits sacs" from grade one for our agendas and home reading books.  Please send them to school tomorrow.  We will be using computers this year, so if your child could bring a mouse (USB connection) to school, it would be greatly appreciated.  Merci.

    Also, if you haven't done so already, could you send me (via e-mail or remind) your name (parent of...), number and e-mail address.  Please and thank you.

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.
