GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

October 3rd Newsletter

on October 2, 2011

Welcome back to a new week!  I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend in spite of the rain.

I’ve posted our newsletter for your perusal.  We have another busy week ahead of us, so please take note of all that is going on.  Hopefully, you’ll find this easy to print it off for your convenience at home.

Oct 3rd Newsletter

Thank you for your assistance in signing agendas at night.  The children have been encouraged to set a regular time for meeting with you at home to review homework and getting their agendas signed.  I know that this can be a challenge (experienced mom speaking), but I encourage you to hold your children accountable in this.  Mrs. Klassen and I check the agendas every morning, and if you note homework that was not finished, we will follow through with students to complete what needs to be done. 

It has come to my attention that there have been some social issues between students in our class (for example, exclusion of others, competition for friendship, unkind words, etc.)   I strongly encourage you as parents to let me know if there are things going on that I may not be privy to. I have told the children that I do not want to hear rumors through other students about things that are happening to them.  They are welcome to talk with me at any time, as are parents.  As a class, we will continue to talk about friendship, sharing, and healthy ways of communicating with one another. 

We are blessed to have a new librarian working in our school – Mrs. Sue Huizing.  Our class will be meeting with her on Wednesday afternoons from 2:00-2:30 pm.  Get ready for some fun with the “crazy library lady”!Click on the link below to see what’s new in the library:

Library Announcement

Grade Four students will be continuing to read their novel, Song of the Brook this week. We will begin working on their first book report together after the holiday weekend.  Stay tuned for more details.

Mrs. Laird will be taking some of our students to the Provincial Cross Country run this Thursday. If they have been asked to participate, your children will find out more details early this week . 

I wish all of you a wonderful, relaxing time with family over the upcoming holiday weekend.  It is hard to believe that we’ve come this far already!  May God Bless you as you spend time enjoying the many blessings He has given.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Devries
