Dear Parents/Guardians,

Happy New Year and welcome back! 

December Pajama Day


Hope everyone had a safe and fun filled holiday!  We are looking forward, once again, to working and playing together with the students to help them continue to learn and grow.

·        We will be exploring 2D shapes and 3 figures.  Students will identify shapes in in the environment and create figures using various materials. 

·        Some students have showed an interest in basketball.  We will continue to learn more about our favourite players through read-alouds and utilizing the smartboard for research. 

·        Our Dramatic Art Centre has been transformed to an Animal Hospital.  Students will learn how to care for animals and use specialized language that may be heard at a Veterinarians Office.   Donations are always accepted and appreciated, items that we are looking for are clean stuffed animals, doctor tools, bandages, x rays,   Q-tips, new tooth brushes, small blankets, small animal crates. 


 Please remember that with the cold weather upon us, children must be dressed warm because we will continue to have outdoor learning twice a day.  Students need a coat, snow pants, a hat, mittens, and boots.  Please remember that they also must have shoes to wear indoors.

On Friday, January 25th, we would like to invite all kindergarten students to wear a hat to school for “Kindergarten Crazy Hat” day.
