Last week was a wonderful week to be a teacher or student!  We had a great time skating with the Premier of NB on Monday.  The students we so well behaved, and were treated to hot chocolate after their skate.  On Wednesday we had a snow day.  On Thursday we left right after announcements to go to 9 Pine for our breakfast.  Students ordered from me in French before we went up.  So, very soon after we arrived, our hot, delicious breakfasts started coming out.  We all ate well, and had a great time chatting together.  We even had a surprise guest appearance by my 2 year-old son, Thomas, who helped me eat my breakfast!!  To round out the perfect week, we had another snow day on Friday.  I hope that everyone had as great of a week as I did!  Check out our pictures in our gallery! This week we need to work hard to get ready for our 2 assessments that are coming up.  Have a great week! Mme Jen

I hope that you all enjoyed your snow day yesterday as much as I did!  Next week, we have lots of exciting things going on, that I wanted to make sure you knew about. On Monday, Premier David Alward will be at the school to meet and talk with students.  At 9:35 am, the Grade 5’s and 7’s will be going to the Blackville rink to skate with the Premier for 1 hour.  Students need to bring with them a pair of skates and a helmet.  Please put the skates in a bag (school bag, canvas shopping bag with guards if you have them) to avoid hurting someone.  If you are free, you are welcome to come to the rink to help out tying skates! On Thursday of next week, I will be taking my class to 9 Pine restaurant  for breakfast.  The cost is $5.50.  Students will have 3 options to choose from, all at the same price.  Students will order their breakfast from me in French.  If the cost is a problem, please send a note with your child and we will take care of it. I wanted to give the students a chance to use their French in a “real-life” setting.  Please send the money as soon as you can, so that I can get the money organized before we go. We only have 3 weeks left of the Intensive French program.  I will be sorry to see it end, as many of the students will.  All Grade 5 students in the province will be doing a written assessment at the end of the program.  This is nothing to worry or stress about.  We do all the preparation in class, and the marks students receive have no bearing on their report cards.  Also, 3 classes in the district were chosen to take part in the oral assessment.  Our class was one of them.  Students will be interviewed by someone hired by the province to assess their oral proficiency.  Again, these results have no bearing on student’s report cards.  They are meant to measure how students as a group are doing in the IF program.  Have a great weekend!

What a fantastic week in Grade 5.  This week all groups finished presenting their dream homes.  They are on display outside our classroom if you get a chance to drop by.  Tuesday, students were treated to their Christmas dinner.  Lots of students chose to have the delicious turkey dinner prepared by our girls in the cafeteria.  Despite the surprise fire alarm during lunch, students got their bellies full!  On Wednesday, we made a giant bowl of fruit salad made and prepared by our class.  Check out our gallery to see lots of pictures of it.  My class still has that sweet citrus smell!! Today, Thursday, we left on a bus with Mrs. Sturgeon's Grade 1 class first thing this morning.  We arrived at the Miramichi Seniors Home at approx. 9:30am and set up.  By 10 am the room was full of seniors and workers.  Our students sang "Vive le vent", Mrs. Sturgeon's class sang "Do You Hear What I Hear" and together we sang "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."  After the singing, 2 Grade 1 students read a story about a gingerbread man.  Then, our students were ;paired with a senior to make a gingerbread man craft.  Both young and old had a wonderful morning. I was so proud of the way the students behaved on the bus and with the seniors.  They were helpful, patient and really seemed to enjoy themselves.  I believe we were all filled with a bit of the Christmas spirit by helping others.  On that same note, we recieved a beautiful "Thank You" card from David Wilson and his school picture.  We wish him well this month as he goes for his surgery. Merry Christmas! Mme Jen
