Greetings everyone!  Can you believe that we are rolling into the month of October already?  Four weeks until Halloween!  WOW! This week the students only have a three day week, as the teachers have to attend Curriculum Implementation meetings.  With my super class, I know we will still get lots of work done in these three days, because they are all such hard workers. My students will be finishing up their comic strips about a member in their family as a final project of the last book that we read, "Mon grand frère" which I know they are all excited to complete.  We are starting another new book that will teach them some of the terminology of Thanksgiving, that they will be celebrating with their families this coming weekend.  Quiz them during Thanksgiving dinner and see what they remember!  I want to take this time to wish all of my families a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy their five day long weekend, and I will be very happy to see everyone next Tuesday! ☺

I want to extend a big THANK YOU to all my parents who made book orders for the month of September!  Because of your generosity I received free rewards to buy items for my class.  This month I am excited to report that I just purchased human anatomy models of the heart, brain, and circulatory and skeletal systems for our Science unit of the human body.  I also had enough reward money to purchase a family coat of arms pack for when we do our middle ages unit in Social Studies.  I know that my students, your children, will get much use out of these great hands-on learning manipulatives!  I couldn’t have gotten these awesome educational items without your help! Thanks again!!                                  Mme Hale

I had to do a double-take today when I sat down to write this message.  I couldn't believe that Friday is the first of October.  It will be Christmas Break before we know it.  This week we have a very special visitor coming to our school.  On Wednesday, Mrs. Barry, the district's Physical Education Mentor, will be joining our class in the gym.  I am sure that she will have lots of fun and exciting new games up her sleeve to share with our class. Wednesday, the district's cross country race is at our school.  We have lots of runners in our class, so please come out and support and cheer them on. Enjoy your week everyone!

This week, on Monday, the school participated in our first annual Terry Fox Walk for cancer research.  It was a great hit and the students enjoyed learning about Terry's amazing story and journey.  They colored sneakers and dedicated them to people that they knew were stricken with this horrible disease.  Our class raised lots of money!  Some students were so generous to even donate up to $20 for this great cause.  I would like to take this time to thank all the parents for their generous donations, Mr. Russell for taking the initiative to raise awareness of this issue to our students, Mrs. Hambrook and Mr. Muck for being such positive role-models, and all the families that came to the school to join us in our walk of hope!  Every one's kindness and hard work is greatly appreciated!  Check out the new image gallery on this teacher page of pictures from this day!
