Swimming at the Tri Leisure on Friday, April 13

April9

The grade 1’s and 2’s are going swimming on Friday, April 13 at the Tri-Leisure. We will leave the school at 11:00. Students will eat snack and lunch before this. We swim from 11:45-1:45 pm. We only bring our swimsuit and bag unless you write a note in your child’s agenda that you are picking him/her up from the Tri Leisure, then we will bring his/her backpack with us. If you are coming to help and you are taking your child after swimming with you (he/she is not returning with us on the bus), please let his/her teacher know before you leave. When back at school we will just have time to collect backpacks and get on buses!

Jersey Day Thursday, April 12

April9

 

Jersey Day – We are hosting Jersey Day on Thursday, April 12th to show support for the Humboldt Broncos team and the tragic accident that occurred this past weekend. There are many connections between our community and this team and it will hit close to home for many of our students and staff. Students, staff and community are asked to wear a Jersey on April 12th to show support for the city of Humboldt.  This is an opportunity for us to show support for the team and community as they move forward with the healing process. Here is a news article from Global News with more information about this initiative: https://globalnews.ca/news/4130525/humboldt-broncos-crash-hockey-jersey-day/

In honour of the young men of the Humboldt Broncos that lost their lives this past weekend our students have asked if we can help with the GoFundMe Page.  So, to help show our support in this tragic time, we will be hosting a Tooni-Drive through the next week or so. Please feel free to send in your cash donations to the school and mark them “Humboldt Broncos”. We will insure that it gets to the appropriate location; OR simply click on this link https://ca.gofundme.com/funds-for-humboldt-broncos to make your own donation.

Thank you for your support of our Hockey Community.

Welcome Back!

September1

Welcome to Grade One.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child to make this a successful and rewarding year.  The following will hopefully address some of the questions that you may have regarding the classroom and the grade one program. The following are bits of information about grade one and the routines that are in place.  THERE WILL BE A GREAT DEAL OF INFORMATION COMING HOME THIS MONTH, SO PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD’S BACKPACK EACH NIGHT. In the future I will ask for parent volunteers for special days/events in the classroom and/or for fieldtrips.  Everyone volunteering in the school will need to fill out a volunteer registration form and criminal record check.  They can be obtained in the office. Child information sheet– I am the only person to read it, please return as soon as possible to me to help me get to know your child better.  Please let me know of any allergies or medical conditions as soon as possible. Please sign and return the FOIP permission and technology permission pages, so your child will receive a log on and password access to use on our computers/ipads in the school. Grade One’s do not have lockers therefore you do not need to sign the locker agreement side. (if form is not included today will be sent in future)   Snack – The students are given the opportunity for a snack time. Please send “finger friendly foods” i.e. Granola bars, fruit, yogurt tubes, things in baggies, messy or foods needing spoons will be saved for lunchtime. Lunch– We eat our lunch in our classroom after lunch recess.  The students are given 20-25 minutes to eat their lunches. SHARING FOODS WITH FRIENDS IS DISCOURAGED BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE ALLERGIES OR FOOD REACTIONS. (with the exception of birthdays, parties and celebration days)    This year we are using a rotating day 1-5 schedule so library, music, and gym will not necessarily be on the same day each week. Library will be on day 2 in the afternoon. I will send a reminder in the student’s agendas each week.  School supplies- I store all extra supplies for each child in a bag labelled with his/her name except what they are currently using so they are not wasted and are readily available when needed.  Any unused supplies will go home with your child at the end of the year. We will be painting in the future, if you have an old shirt your child could use as a paint shirt over his/her clothing please send with his/her name on. It will be kept here for painting through the year and returned at the end of grade one. Agenda scribbler– We will be using lined scribblers for an Agenda that will go home each day and must be returned to school each morning.  This book is the mainstay of our communication system. If you are sending payment or some else important to me please put it in an envelope. Please with what it is for and your child’s name on the envelope. We will be writing each day in our agendas to notify you of special events, activities, and later in the year we will be printing our spelling words in them also. I check and initial the agenda scribbler each day.  I ask the agenda scribbler be kept in Ziploc bag for protection against leaking water bottles, wet mitts, and other accidents. It would be appreciated if any money/payments being sent to school is put in a Ziploc bag or envelope.  Please clearly label with your child’s name, reason for the money, and the amount enclosed because the envelopes are set to/collected by the office. Other communication- open communication between home and school is important to me.  During the school year you may be hearing from me through newsletters, notes in the agendas, class blog, an email or phone call. If you have any questions I encourage you to contact me at school (963-3535), write a note, or an email.

I look forward to meeting you and working with your child this year.  Hopefully together, we can provide a positive learning and growing experience for the children. September 13th- Mustang Kickoff and Welcome back from 5:00 pm to 7:00.  Come mingle and meet the teachers and staff. (This note will be coming home in their agenda on the first day also.)

Thank you,

Ms. Wendy Douglas
