Our Winter walk is this afternoon. Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately for about an hour of walking! We will start off the afternoon with an assembly in the gym and learning a cheer in our colour teams! this will be lead by the Junior High leaders. We will then walk with our class groups. Any parents are welcome to join our class for the walk this afternoon.
In other exciting news, the Grade Three teachers have organized a field trip to Studio Bell the National Music Centre (Formerly the Cantos Music Centre) in downtown Calgary. This is an excellent field trip and a great culmination to our Science Unit on Hearing and Sound. The trip will occur at the end of February. Ms. Harrison's and 3S will go on February 27 and Mr. Ellis's class will go on March 2nd. The cost of the field trip covering admission to the National Music Centre, the programing provided and bussing will cost $20.00 per student. Each class will require 4 parent volunteers to make this trip a success. The permission form and letter will be coming home today. I will take the first 4 parents to respond. Parent Chaperones do not have to pay.
We will have a Valentine party next Wednesday afternoon. I will send the class list home with the correct spelling of all names, so that students can work on addressing their Valentine cards. While making Valentine cards is not mandatory, I do encourage students to make a card for everyone in the class! (The list will be on pink or purple paper). If you would like to make or send something special for the Valentine Party, please let me know. We generally have a veggie tray, a fruit tray, juice boxes, Individually packaged chips and a sweet treat.
