Kindergarten Update November 28

Today students read the book "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom", and watched the short video of the book.  They finished their Chicka Chicka Boom Boom pages in their visual journals.  Students practiced putting the letters of the alphabet in order, and played our new card game, War.  They also learned to print a capital letter B.

A reminder that book order forms are due back this Thursday, November 30.  This is the last chance to order books before Christmas.

Please read the following invitation, from Westmount's grade 4 students:

Dear Westmount Families,

 You are invited to the  grade 4 Alberta Perspectives Museum. We are showcasing artifacts from three different Alberta perspectives. We are doing this to showcase what we learned in social studies. The time is 1:00-4:00 on December 5th 2017. It will be held at the Westmount school learning commons. The cost is free! Hope we see you there!

Please see the letter below from our wonderful music teacher, Mrs. Jones, regarding the Christmas concert:

Good afternoon parents, guardians and students:

All classes K-5 have been hard at work with Christmas Concert rehearsals and preparations. I have listed below a bit of reminder information regarding Christmas Concert dates, times and as well as costume information. 

Concert#1 - Wednesday, December 13, 7:00-8:30 PM: Westmount Christmas Concert 1 (Classes: 1P, 2N, 3S, 3E, 4M, 5H, 5N, and all Ms. New Kindergarten Students)
Concert #2 - Thursday, December 14, 7:00 – 8:30 PM: Westmount Christmas Concert 2 (1M, 1D, 2W, 3W, 4C, 4E, 5K, 5M and all Ms. Campbell's Kindergarten Students)

Students will be asked to arrive for no later then 6:10pm to their homeroom classroom on the night of their concert. The concert should conclude around the 8:30 pm mark. I will have a better idea of this once we have a chance to run through our full dress rehearsals on the afternoons of Monday December 11th and Tuesday December 12th.

Kindergarten students will be performing 2 songs in the production.

Grade 1's and 2's will be performing 2 songs together and then will be re-joining the grade 3-5's for the very last song at the end of the production. 

There is no special costume required for students in kindergarten, grade 1 or grade 2. Students are welcome to wear something that would be suitable for a concert performance. Dressing in a “holiday outfit” or in Christmas colours would also be suitable. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at jonesa@fsd38.ab.ca

I will be in touch if more details come to me!

Yours truly,

Ms. Jones
