What a week!!!  We had a lot to do this week, including decorating our pumpkins and making witches out of construction paper.  On top of that we even had a day of to relax during the week.  If only all weeks were like that!!  After school today, there will be a halloween party in the cafeteria for students.  Preschool-Grade 2 is from 5pm-6pm.  Grades 3-5 will be from 6:30pm - 7:30pm. Tomorrow, Friday, students will be dressing up.  My students have Math, Phys. Ed., and will be playing outside at dinner time.  Because of this, they won't be putting on their costumes until after lunch.  If you are sending a treat for the students, please send at least 27 items.  Have a safe, happy halloween!

I hope that everyone had a restful, happy Thanksgiving weekend.  I know that I did!  This past week we continued working on extended families, and read a book about Thanksgiving.  We also learned a new song about a poor man that is in very bad shape!  We sang this song for Mrs. Hambrook's Grade 2 class and Mrs. Sturgeon's Grade 1 class.  The students did a fantastic job!

It is hard to believe that it is only Wednesday afternoon and the students are at the end of another week! Teachers will be in meeting Thurdsday and Friday for Curriculum Implementation days.  Then we all have a long weekend for Thanksgiving.  This week in class students have been learning about their extended families, and how to present these to others.  Rather than draw a family tree, which can get complicated and take up too much space, we have drawn our extended families as constellations.  We will be presenting these next week.  We are also beginning to learn about body parts, and drew a very interesting character together in class! Have a happy, safe Thanksgiving!

We are really moving now in Grade 5!  Our days are spent all in French, with very few exceptions.   We are talking about our extended families now, and some of us have very large families!  We are trying to incorporate some art and music into everyday to keep students excited about learning.  We are learning some tricks for reading, and have begin a word wall and a "sound wall" to learn ways to spell certain sounds in French.  Check out our image gallery to see some pictures of us drawing a constellation family map! I will not be at school on Thursday and Friday.  Mrs. Sherrard will be filling in for me.  Have a great rest of week and weekend!

On Monday, we had a Terry Fox run here at Blackville School.  The elementary walked around the building 3 or 4 times, and the Middle and High school walked the cross-country trail. Parents and family members were invited to attend, and I was glad to see some of our parents in attendance.  Please take a look at the image gallery to see some pictures of us walking our own "Marathon of Hope."
