Miss Peter’s Grade

1 & 2 News


Dear Families,

Thank you to everyone who made it out to conferences! I really enjoyed seeing you and meeting those of you I hadn’t met yet. It was wonderful to be able to discuss your child’s progress together. If you have  any questions or want to schedule a meeting please email me at neshica.peter@rbe.sk.ca


Coming Up…

December is a short month and it is going to fly by! It will be Winter Holidays before you know it. We are adding up a storm and getting better every day. We are learning about Bossy E, Nouns and Verbs, letter writing, and working on using before, during, and after reading strategies! Ask us about the difference between needs and wants and we’ll be able to tell you; not just our needs and wants but the needs and wants of winter animals too.

A little bit more…

We officially had our first big snowfall! Thank you for sending your child to school with appropriate outdoor clothing. Please ensure that your child has indoor shoes and winter appropriate outdoor boots. I ask that you continue to send mittens, winter hats, scarves, snow pants, and a warm jacketJ Please label your child’s belongings with their names as it is easy to lose garments in the chaos of recess. Please keep sending those wonderful, healthy snacks. Only 14 more days and we are close to reaching our goal! Check the calendar and agendas regularly as there is a lot going on this month! As usual thanks for your cooperation and have a great December and Holiday Season!
