Friday, December 5

Only two more weeks to go until the winter break!

The class has planned their term 1 celebration on Friday, December 19.  Many students signed up to bring food.  Please discuss with your child what they have committed to bring.  We are also asking students to bring in their favourite board game on that day as we will be having an afternoon of games. Additionally, students have voted to participate in a Secret Santa gift exchange.  Each student is to bring in a $10 gift for the student they randomly select.  Please help your child choose a thoughtful gift as the purpose of this activity is to celebrate our friendships with one another a build a sense of community in our classroom.

Report cards will be given out next Friday, December 12.  Please call the office to arrange a time to meet with Mrs. Langston on Monday, December 15 or Tuesday, December 16 if you have any concerns.  There will be early dismissal at 1:30pm on both of these days to accommodate parent/teacher interviews.

Thank you to all students who handed in their Christmas stories on time today.  Those that are behind need to finish and hand in their work ASAP.

Homework reminders:
1) Science test on Ch. 8 (Layers of the earth, Pangea, & Plate Tectonics) Friday, December 12
2) Biography rough draft due Monday, December 15
3) Grade 7 Math (Grade 6s do not have homework today)

*Please keep in mind that when your child does not have assigned homework they are still able to practice math facts, read, journal and do other activities that you feel will enhance their learning.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Christmas Hampers

Christmas is just around the corner and we are gearing up to start collecting items for our Christmas hampers.  This is a great way for students to get involved with caring for the less fortunate in our community.

Our class has been tasked with collecting toiletries.  Today students committed to bringing one specific item.  Extra donations of toiletries, new toys, new books, and cash are all welcome.  Please help us spread a little Christmas joy this year.


1) Math
2) Hamper donations
3) Christmas stories, including all illustrations, are due Friday December 5th
4) The next Science test is scheduled for Friday December 12th
5)  Don't forget to read everyday!  This is an important way for you to practice all of the awesome skills you have learned in Reading Workshop.  Parents, ask your children why good readers ask questions, visualize, and make connections.  They should be able to tell you how these things make them better readers!

See you tomorrow,

Mrs. Elston
