During this week and next, students will take a break from regular math classes to focus their mathematical thinking on challenging problems; ones that require some trail and error as well as some creative thinking.
Connected to this, students have also enjoyed challenging themselves with Suduko puzzles, with most moving from level 1 to 4 within a week. Soon, they will be solving puzzles included in the back of the newspaper! Yahoo!
This coming student led conferences (Tuesday, January 30th and Thursday, February 1st) will provide the opportunity for both students and parents to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth together.
Your child will be leading you through various stations to showcase their recent learning and speak to their processes and thinking. During this time, the homeroom teacher will be present and available, however time slots will be shared amongst a small group of families and students. If you would like to meet with the homeroom teacher privately, please contact the homeroom teacher directly to set up a time outside of student led conferences.

This fundraiser is supporting our Grade 9 across Canada trip.
Today students read different aboriginal myths and legends and discussed using the following guiding questions:
- What’s the main message?
- What can we learn about aboriginal culture/ beliefs from this legend?
- What stood out to you as interesting?
Students may bring into school a favorite board game to play with friends!
Also, it is school wide PJ Day!
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday break!
May it be filled with love, laughter and rest!
See you again January 8th 🙂
