Weekly Message for May 23rd-May 27th

Posted: May 24, 2011

Welcome back from a long weekend everyone.  I sure hope everyone had a super weekend and got lots of rest to prepare for our busy week ahead! Monday of course there is no school, but on Tuesday we have a big day.  First thing Tuesday morning we will have the opportunity to watch the Grade 6 drama presentations.  They performed these productions at the Drama Festival in Fredericton two weeks ago, and we are fortunate to have the pleasure of watching it ourselves.  I am sure it will be very entertaining.  After the drama presentation, Mr. Duplessie will be joining us again to go over copyright issues for our upcoming presentations on Ancient Greece.  I am sure his lesson will be a memorable one.  In the afternoon we will be going to the computer lab to give you time to work on your presentation for Ancient Greece while the information that Mr. Duplessie informed you with will be fresh in your mind. Wednesday, we have our Roots of Empathy Walk-a-thon at 10:30 after recess.  Parents are more than welcome to join us on our adventure if you wish.  Thursday is another big day.  First thing in the morning the class will be in class writing the Provincial Math Assessment.  This could take up to two hours.  I am hoping that the students are studying for this event at home in the evenings to make sure they ace this test.  Mrs. Turcott has worked extremely hard with these students, giving them help over and above her duties.  I am positive that the students will make her very proud.  Don't forget to bring a water bottle and have lots of pencils for this day. Friday is another day of testing, and then we will have our last day of DARE with Mrs. Donahue, along with Reading Buddies, and Fun Friday. As I said before...it is a BIG week, so hopefully you will get plenty of rest and enjoy your fun-filled days here at BHS!!!
