A little bit more …

  • Reading and Spelling: Thank you for all of your cooperation. Please continue toread with your child as well as practice their spelling words with them as often as possible.
  •  Show and Tell: We took a vote and have decided to introduce Show and Tell. Please ONLY send something with your child when it is there day. I really encourage students to leave ALL personal belongings at home unless it is Show and Tell day. The Show and Tell days have been posted on the attached calendar. Your child is welcome to bring ONE item that fits easily into their backpack on that day.
  • Community Helpers: We are doing a community helpers unit in Social. We will have a few guest speakers. The Humane Society sends a list of items they need. Please take a look at the list they sent (attached). If you have any of the items, feel free to send them with your child at any time!!
  • Calling All Kleenex Boxes: We have officially run out of Kleenex. Our noses would appreciate any extra boxes you feel like sending!!!!

If you have any questions, never hesitate to contact me. Feel free to join our Remind as well. neshica.peter@rbe.sk.ca , remind.com/join/c8g3ae

Important Information

Weather: Please continue to send your child to school in weather appropriate clothing.  

Show and Tell: One more note about Show and Tell. It will be every Friday (so this month there will only be 2 days for Show and Tell). Your child should choose something that is important to them and they should be able to briefly explain why they brought the item to class. If you could chat with your child about what they are bringing and why, it would help them when they present to the class. This will help them work on their oral language and public speaking skills as well!

Family Literacy Night: This month’s literacy night will be during the last week of April. Stay tuned for more information.

Notes: Please try and get notes signed and return as quickly as possible. Thank you for your consistent cooperation in this matter!
