It was so wonderful to meet all of you throughout the last few weeks at conferences. We have immensely appreciated all of the support and dedication you put in day in and day out to ensure your child is successful in school and in life.
November always brings us pause and reflection through the recognition of Remembrance Day early in the month. Several Div 1 students had the honour of emceeing the event and performing a small skit during our school assembly, which was very special to witness.
This month, we completed our read-aloud for the term: Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus. The main character in the story was born without arms, so we've been discussing the impacts of life with a disabilities. To really immerse ourselves in the experience, we took part in an "Armless Activity" where students had to complete everyday tasks such as reading a book, writing a sentence, drinking from a water bottle and more! Check out the images on our Instagram or Facebook page by tapping the social media icons above. Students will begin working on their final projects for our read-aloud throughout December.
Throughout November, we also worked through much of our decimal operations unit and continued our work with area and perimeter of polygons. In the coming weeks, we will complete a final review of decimal place value & operations, and students will sit their first math test.
Finally, over the last month we did a lot of reflection and preparation for conferences, which was hopefully evident throughout your experience! Students are currently putting the final touches on their Core Competency Media Projects and you can view their assignments on Teams as they come in throughout the coming week.
Be sure to check out the News section of our site to see what's coming up this month!
Hope you have a wonderful start to December!
