Teaching Through The Integrated Arts

We are really enjoying our Teaching Through The Integrated Arts sessions featuring guest artist, Mme Broughton. During the first session each student rolled 100 clay balls.  During the second session the balls were used to form a clay pot. These pots will be fired in the kiln at Westwood High School. Our last TIA session is on Monday, November 3rd from 9:15 to 10:30. It will be in the Art Room and parents are welcome to attend. We will be painting the clay pots!

C'est l'Halloween (almost)!

Next Friday is Halloween! Please send your child to school with their costume. We will be putting them on after lunch and attendance, around 1:10. There will be a school parade in the gym at 1:30. Students will go out for recess as usual, and our class party will take place after recess, at 2:45. Parents who signed up for a snack will receive an email reminder. Have a great long weekend!

Reading in English et en francais!

Some of you may have noticed the same books coming home for French reading. We are working on books right now where the students are adding to their stories, and they should be ready to come home for home reading soon!

Keep an eye out for letters about razkids, our online reading program, which will be sent out soon with usernames and passwords for each student.

Happy reading!

Hello families!

A couple of reminders:

- Scholastics book orders are due. I will be placing the order no later than next Tuesday - please send them in as soon as possible if you want to order!

- There is no school Monday. Happy Thanksgiving!

- Thank you to those who have already responded to our request for volunteers for The Integrated Arts program. If you are available to volunteer, please email and let us know!

- I have attempted to post the Oct. calendar on a separate page, which you can access through the link at the right of this page. It is currently experiencing some technical difficulties, but I am hoping that eventually you will be able to see the class calendar there each month!

- Discovery will begin next week.

Thank you always for your support, and have a great long weekend!
