Hi parents and readers,
There seems to be quite a few items to add to the blog this week.
TONIGHT at 6:00 there will be an important presentation made by some of our students here at Grace. They’ve been working hard with Parry Aftab, a world leader in cyber-bullying issues, to bring to light a problem that is becoming more prevalent in today’s world. We encourage you all to come out and learn more. There will be refreshments and child-care provided.
Say Cheese… Again!
Picture retakes will be on Thursday. Please let me know whether or not your child will be having his or her picture taken again. Picture orders are due November 6 at the latest.
Remembrance Day Service and Grandparents’ Day
We will have our Remembrance Day service on Thursday, November 7, at 1:00 in the afternoon. This will be followed by our Grandparents’ Day program at 2:00 to honour these very special people in our lives. Afterwards there will be coffee, tea, and snacks downstairs. Grandparents are invited to come and visit their grandchildren in their classrooms. If a student’s grandparents cannot join us, stand-in grandparents are more than welcome! We love to see families come together and celebrate the special relationships God has blessed us with, even if they are not the most conventional. 🙂
Please note that children will be expected to remain in school until the end of the day at 3:00.
Mrs. Laird will be having a French test on Thursday, October 31. Studying is always a smart idea.
There will be no school on Friday, November 8 due to a Professional Development Day for teachers. There will also be no school on Monday, November 11 for Remembrance Day.
Grade Four Assessment Letters
Letters are being sent home today regarding the results of last year’s literacy assessment that took place in the spring.
Mrs. Effie Able sent home an information package yesterday regarding EPIC Cheer, a Christ-centered cheerleading group for girls. Registration forms are due tomorrow if your child is interested. It sounds like a blast!
Story Sharing and Writing with Kindergarten
On Friday, November 1, students will be sharing the stories they wrote on “When Things comes Alive” with the kindergarten class. They will then work with their younger partners to write a collaborative story. We’re looking forward to this literacy-filled afternoon! It’s always special to develop relationships with other students in the school.
I do believe that is it for now. Remember to be strong in the Lord!
