June Newsletter

  So long, farewell! It’s hard to say “Good Bye”     

Grade 4 June Newsletter

Dear Parents,

We hope that this newsletter finds you well and ready for the summer. It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is approaching so quickly. It just seems like yesterday that we were going over routines, expectations and meeting the parents at the “Meet the Teacher” night and here we are. The Grade 4 students have been a wonderful group of children to work with. They have been creative, helpful, compassionate, reverent and engaged in Mass. They have also been involved in school activities and have been eager to learn new things as well as share their knowledge with their classmates and teachers. We would like to extend a special “Thank you” to all of the parents who have volunteered countless hours in our classrooms, on field trips and in the school. Your help has been greatly appreciated.

As summer approaches many parents begin to wonder about summer programs, camps or lessons. Here are a few suggestions to keep your child engaged, active, make new friends and take on leadership roles.

  1. Visit the public library as often as possible. Take out informational texts (non-fiction) as well as fiction books. Keep a record of how many books your child reads over the summer. Set a realistic goal of say 10 books. If this goal is achieved then perhaps you can celebrate by going for ice-cream.
  2. Be a tourist in your own city. Visit Science World, The Burnaby Art Gallery, The Vancouver Museum, Stanley Park, The Museum of Anthropology, The Police Museum, Chinatown, The Japanese Gardens, The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, The Capilano Suspension Bridge, The Granville Island Market, Maplewood Farm, The greater Vancouver Zoo or The Fort Langley National Historic Site.
  3. Visit Vancouver Island or Haida Gwaii
  4. Visit Barkerville
  5. Visit Vancouver Kids Books
  6. The Vancouver School Board has numerous programs available for children. For more information please check www.vsb.bc.ca/summerprogram
  7. Be active : Go hiking, biking, swimming, running or learn a new sport

 

A note from the classroom:
