January 14th update

Students will begin working in small groups on an Olympic project that include some aspects of writing, social, pe and reading.  I will be providing the students with an outline (available here) and checking in on their progress regularly.  Please do what you can to ensure that students are on putting in work outside of school time as needed.  The deadline for the entire project is Feb 10th. Thank you for your support.

Some useful websites are located on my Homepage.

October 14th Update

Hello folks,

-Our fundraiser packages went home yesterday with the youngest/only child of each family.  Please have all order forms and money turned in to the school no later than November 2nd as late orders will not be accepted.  I would just like to remind parents that we do NOT encourage students to go door-to-door without the supervision of a parent.  The money raised will go towards the purchase of a badly needed sound system for the gymnasium.

Oct. 7th update

Good morning everyone,
Just a heads up that we have a math test tomorrow (both grade seven and grade eight).  We had a practice test today and some students will have some preparing to do tonight.

Also, our trip to Chapters is tomorrow afternoon.  Several students have not brought back their permission forms yet.  Please send them in by tomorrow morning if you have not done so already.

April 30th update

Hello folks.

I would like to thank everyone who has sent in the money and permission forms for the field trip to Crooked Valley already.  Just a reminder that if you have not, the deadline is May 26th.

I would also like to announce that I have booked two bowling sessions on the afternoons of June 9th and 15th for our class.  We will walk to the Glencairn bowling alleys after lunch each of those days.  There will be a permission form coming out for this event shortly.  You can also check the document library link on the left for missing permission forms.
