Hello everyone, We have a very busy week ahead and a lot to remember to do and bring ! 
1. Bake sale tomorrow and Wednesday our class is one of the classes responsible for bringing items to sell (please remember no NUTS.) we will gladly accept any donations you can send in whether they are store bought or home made. 
2. International day is fast approaching. I will be providing the food for the day but I am asking for $2 donations to help pay for some of the cost of food. - students will be assigned homework tomorrow to learn about Barbados 🇧🇧. They will be asked to do a small write up about their assigned part and bring in 1-2 small colour pictures (Internet) to accompany it.

We started by writing our agenda note
Orange Shirt Day is a legacy that grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

  • Thursday October 5th is International Day we are studying Barbados if you have something from Barbados can you please email me
  • Friday October 6th - Hot lunch payments due
  • Raz kids for 15 mins 
Each Friday there will be a spelling test for the words of the week. Students will bring the words home every Monday in their agenda. On Mondays students will bring home their spelling words journal. In this journal they will be required to write each of their spelling words in a sentence. The journal will be due back on Fridays.

A quick little announcement:

Unfortunately over the weekend our class pet Rocket Bob passed away. Yesterday we discussed the importance of caring for all living things and that sometimes things just happen. We then took a vote to decide if we would like to have a new classroom pet. 

Today we introduced our new pet to our classroom and talked about ways we will care for him. We then brainstormed first and last names and voted on the ones we like best. 

The Grade 1's would like to welcome . . .  Sharky Cupcake to our classroom!
