Farewell to Ms. Edna and Ms. Laura
Both classes said good-bye to Ms. Edna and Ms. Laura on Friday. It was a pleasure to have them in our classrooms and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
Field Trip - Iona Park - Tuesday, April 24th
Both classes will be going on their 1st Field Trip this Tuesday. They will be walking from the school to Iona Park for a nature scavenger hunt. Please be sure your child is comfortably dressed for the weather (walking shoes, sunhat, spring jacket). We will be leaving the school at 10:30am and returning by 12:30pm. Please be sure to pack a water bottle for your child that day and some extra snacks in their lunch bag as all the outdoor play is bound to make them hungry. All parent volunteers are to sign in at the office at 10:25am. Thanks for joining us on our adventure!
With spring come the hungry bears!
It isn't uncommon for children to go through a growth spurt at this time of year. Please chat with your child about the amount of food in their lunch bag. Many of our year 2 (SK) students have been stating they are still hungry during our designated lunch period (12:50-1:10pm) when they open their lunch bag to find only 1 item left to eat. Students have open snack during both morning and midday play blocks and then have their designated lunch time, making for 3 opportunities to sit down and eat. Packing an extra healthy snack goes a long way in keeping the hungry bear away.
A call for Playdough
Both classes have run out of playdough. If you would like to make a batch for your child's classroom, please send a message via Remind or your child's Communication book. We can then send you a recipe if need be and a date to send it in. Thanks!
Glue sticks - They eat them! No seriously...the Kinder set goes through them VERY quickly. Any donations are greatly appreciated!
Parent Climate Survey
Every two years, the OCDSB asks parents to provide input and feedback to help us develop strategies to promote safe and inclusive schools. This week, you will find a Parent Climate Survey letter with a school specific web address in your child's Note Tote. The survey will be open from April 23 to May 11.
