Field Trip Notice + Spelling List

Welcome back to school!  I hope you all had a wonderful break.  The children were excited to share their spring break stories with me on their first day back. 🙂

I am sending home the Burnaby Village Museum field trip form home today.  We would like to apologize for a typo on the field trip.  The field trip destination is Burnaby Village Museum not SFX. 😛

I will be introducing the new spelling list tomorrow.  However, if you would like an extra day to practice the spelling words with your child, here is the list of words:

List words:Soft “c” and “g”:

cell, gems, age, place, gyms, city, cents, price, space, nice, giant, changes, pages, gentle, message, centre (center), recycle, generosity, giraffe, celebrate

Bonus words: pioneer, settlement, history, village, museum

Thank you!

Congratulations to 3W

Hello 3W Families,

I hope you all had a restful weekend and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine on Family Day.

Congratulations to our 3W students for their performance at the SFX Speech Arts Festival last Wednesday.  The children worked very hard to prepare for the presentation and  I’m very proud of them.  Thank you for taking the time to come and see the students perform.

A friendly reminder that tomorrow is Valentine’s Spirit Day.  Children may wear pink, red or white to show Valentine’s Day spirit.  We will also be having a small party in the afternoon.

Happy Valentine’s Day :).

 

 

 

Moira’s Birthday – Costumes and Props

Please download the costumes and props list here –> Speech Arts 2017 Props and costumes

Students will need to bring their costumes to school on Feb.6th so we can practice before our actual presentation on Feb.8th.

Students in 3W are excited.  They have been bringing in pizza and cake boxes for our “food tower”.  Please continue to bring in any birthday cake and pizza boxes if you happen to have them at  home.  Thank you!

Help is needed!

We are currently looking for 1 artistic parent to come in next week to help make some of the props.

We are also looking for the following props:

  1. Colourful (“non-Christmasy”) wrapping paper for our presents
  2. Shoe boxes / small boxes
  3. Two chef hats
  4. A large birthday banner
  5. 28 cone shaped party hats
  6. 3 Phones (the bigger the better!)
  7. Aprons
  8. Toy pizzas
  9. Toy birthday cakes
  10. A fake mustache

If you have the above items/if you would like to drop by next week to help with our props, please write a note in your child’s planner/e-mail me by Friday.

Thank you so much for your continuous support.

UPDATE: Yvonne (Rylan’s mom) e-mailed me and had an awesome suggestion for presents.  Could we get each family to wrap 1-2 empty boxes and bring them to school? Thanks :).
