Monday is Peace Day – Elementary students are asked to wear white on Monday as they join in with Middle School’s peace day activity.
Where We Are in Place and Time – Journeys – Our investigation into journeys and how they change us is well underway. Next week we will journey closer to home. We will be exploring the Prokrovsky neighborhood Monday morning. If your family lives in Prokrovsky Hills, we invite your child to put a sign on your house so that others can find it as classes look for landmarks for mapping.
Ice Sculptures! Thank you to all of our parent volunteers who braved the cold and joined us on our field trip on Wednesday! It was a slippy, slidey, windy, wonderful day!
Homework: Life is a Journey! Thank you to families who have completed timelines. Your work has been an inspiration to others. As was described on our homework page, families are asked to help children develop a timeline of their lives. Please include any events that are significant to your child. “Losing a first tooth, learning to swim, moving to a new place…” Any format can be used for this. Perhaps you could discuss/list significant events, provide photos or encourage drawings for some of these events, and let your child decide how to put the information together for sharing with the class. Thanks to all our families for your help with this! Timelines may be returned anytime in the next couple of weeks.
Writing – “What are we doing in writing?” you ask. Hmmm . . . our punctuation focus continues! Woohoo!!!
Math – As we continue our work in measurement, we will also begin working on data collection. The students will be gathering information, graphing and interpreting graphs in the next few weeks.
Home connection – Your child can begin thinking about data collection by surveying the family about favorites – ice cream, movie, sport, etc. Help them develop a range of questions that they can ask their classmates.
Reminder of skating days – Please assume your child will need skates on his assigned day as decisions to cancel skating will not be made until after the school day begins.
