Good afternoon everyone!
I hope everyone had a wonderful night! The mornings are becoming cooler, so please make sure your child is dressed for the weather! Please forgive me for not posting pictures. My computer is saying I have no room to download! I will be having it looked at this weekend!
November hot lunch, scholastic orders, and after school activity forms were due today.
Sibling pictures will be done in February when graduation pictures are taken.
Harvest/Halloween Spirit Day is just around the corner. Students may come dressed in their costume or in harvest colours – orange, brown, etc. Please no send students with scary costumes or masks. Weapons will also not be allowed. If you care to send in a goodie bag with candy or pencils/erasers, you may do so. Please do not send in cupcakes! Candy will not be eaten at school, but will be sent home with students. It will be a fun day of Halloween/Harvest activities and a dance.
Please note that after care invoices have been sent via Freshbooks. After care payments are due Saturday, October 28 **My apologies for the change in date. Completely my falult. Please pay as soon as possible to avoid interest charges. Please also note that we are no longer accepting cheques as a method of payment. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
I sent home the Polar Expressions Publishing letter and information a few weeks back. I strongly encourage students to enter on their own time. One of my students placed third last year in the short poem category. Please keep in mind the due dates – poetry deadline is November 15 and the short story deadline is November 30. Good luck!

Today our OWA writing assessment took a long time, so we ended up using our math period to finish our OWAs. Those who finished their OWA early were challenged with a question in math.
Today we wrote our OWA post assessment. We were given a sheet with information on a particular Canadian animal to read and highlight important information. We were required to write an introduction, three body paragraphs (physiology, habitat and range), and a conclusion. Students were also required to paraphrase, which is still causing some great distress!
-Read for 40 minutes
