New Class Book

We will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as our class Read Aloud. However, Ms. Walker will be reading only the odd chapters at school. Students will have to read the even chapters at home. Students will have brought home their reading schedule. The even chapters will be due each Tuesday, with Chapter 2 due on April 26th. Please find the complete schedule here. Find the permission form here.

Easter Eggs made with our Grade 2 buddy class

Last week, we made these beautiful eggs with Mrs. Sihoe's class. We each coloured our own egg then glitterized them. Don't they look festive!

Making Board Games

April 7, 2022

We are almost finished our current Read Aloud: 'The Girl Who Drank the Moon' by Kelly Barnhill. The students are working in groups to create a trivia game based on the book.

Welcome to Term 3!

This term will go so quickly. We have many things planned so keep checking here for new information.

Let's Keep in Touch!

Open, positive communication between home and school is integral in improving your child’s academic performance.

Here are several ways to communicate with me:

- Send me a note in your child’s agenda.

- Send me an Email. I will answer emails before school and after school, but am not able to answer emails during school and may not always be available to answer emails in the evenings or on weekends.

If you have a major concern or important information to share with me, please:

- Set up a meeting before or after school . I am available from 8-8:30 am before school, and from 3-3:30 most afternoons. Please know that if you need my full attention for more than 5 minutes, it would be best to set up an appointment. If you think it will be a quick chat, feel free to talk to me any time before or after school.

-If you would like to talk to me “in person” but are reluctant to meet at school, I would be happy to set up an MSTeam meeting time with you for before or after school.

- Call the school to set up a phone call at 250-658-5238.
