GCS Grades 3 and 4

The Adventures of Mrs. Bouter's Class

This Week (January 27-31)

on January 27, 2014

Hello parents:

Brrr! It’s Cold Out There!

Like all good Islanders, I will begin this post by talking about the weather. 😛 Since you never know what the temperature will be with all of the wild fluctuations, I ask that you make sure your child comes prepared with suitable outdoor wear. Some of the students have come to school on cold days like today expecting to stay inside. However, it warmed up enough that they could go out and some were caught unprepared without snow pants and mittens.

Grade Four Cereal Box Book Report

Grade four students will begin a cereal box book report on their novel Saved at Sea. These will be due next Tuesday, February 4th. They will need a cereal box that is wrapped in plain paper to be decorated (Wrapping paper turned inside out, perhaps.). The best sized box would be a larger Honeycombs, Bran Flakes, or Bulk Cheerios box.  They will need this no later than Thursday.

Sleigh Ride

As you probably know by now, we are planning on going on a sleigh ride at Terpstra’s this Thursday, leaving at 1:00 in the afternoon. Students needs to take a helmet if they wish to go tobogganing down the hill. The cost for this event is $6.00 per child and $7.00 for any parents wishing to go. Yes, rides are needed so please let me know as soon as possible if you are available to transport children.

Friday – No School (but ONLY if there are no storm days in the meantime)

Friday is a Professional Development Day. However, since the junior high and high school students have exams this week, they will need all four days to complete them. That means that if there happens to be a snow day, the PD Day will be cancelled and there will be school on Friday as usual.
