Update for Oct 3-7th

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

Once again this year, our school has decided to participate in the FCC Drive Away Hunger program by collecting donations of food for people who are hungry in our area. By participating in this program, FCC will include our school in two draws for a $500 donation to be used to make improvements at the winning schools.

We invite you to send a food item to school with your child between Tuesday, October 4th and Wednesday, October 12th to support this program. On Wednesday, October 12th, we will draw for two classes to come to the lobby and help weigh and load the food items onto the FCC wagon.  For more information on FCC Drive Away Hunger, visit http://www.fccdriveawayhunger.ca.

Below is a list of most needed food items according to Food Banks Canada:

  • pasta products and rice
  • canned meats and fish
  • dry and canned soups and stews
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • flour
  • breakfast cereal
  • canned/powdered milk
  • fruit juices
  • pasta sauce
  • beans and legumes
  • infant formula and baby food

Thank you for your support. Working together, we can drive away hunger!

Friday Oct 7th is our Walk/Ride to School Day – leaving Stratford Town Hall @ 7:45 a.m.

Terry Fox was held Friday September 30th. All the children in our school participated and had a blast!! This was a fundraiser for cancer research ( I forgot to put this in our blog last week) so if anyone wants to make a donation for that I’ll extend the deadline until Monday Oct 3rd. Thank-you to those who already made a loonie or toonie donation!

What’s going on in our class this??

It’s review week! We’ll be going over the letters F/E/D and the sight words the/can/ see!

MATH– sorting- how many different ways can we think of to sort things!

Painting– mixing colours and getting creative!! 🙂

Writer’s workshop will start! We have spent the month of September telling stories (Author’s Chair). This month we’ll focus on drawing our stories by using lots of detail and talking about their masterpieces at Author’s Chair. Writer’s workshop is just telling their stories on paper!! The next step will be adding sounds and sight words to support their drawings. It’s so exciting to watch each child grow as readers and writers!!!!!

Theme- pumpkins and apples- Harvest time through reading, writing and science
