Thursday with Team 72

Dear Children and Families,

Parent/Teacher Conferences are Thursday night and Friday.  We are excited to share student progress with you!

Help us bring some Christmas joy to our city’s homeless

The Fill a Sock, Fill a Need campaign provides a Christmas “stocking” of essential needs and small personal items to those in need.

We are asking each student to donate $5 (or more J) to help fill socks to be donated to the Drop In Centre.  If possible, we would also ask students to donate a pair of new, warm, adult sized socks.

We strongly encourage students to earn their donation money by doing chores around the house - shoveling snow, taking out the garbage…etc.

We will be collecting money from students between November 21st and December 1st.  We will also be collecting cash donations during Parent Teacher Interviews. 

POWER WORDS:       going  put  said  want  big
-Please bring a shoe box to use during science next week
-Practice Xmas Concert Songs please
-No School for students Friday
-Community Walk next Thursday afternoon– can you volunteer to join us? Please email Ms MacMillan if you are available from 2-2:45pm.  Thanks!


We are learning to read.  We use strategies to help us figure out words.  We point to the words, we look at the pictures, we look at the first letter in the word, we say the letters sounds out loud.  Ask me what strategies I am using when I read with you at home.

During writing we had free choice writing time.
In word work we played the Making Words game.  We used the words it, in and is to make words.

In math we finished showing what we know about patterns.  We wrote about our patterns using pictures, numbers and words.

In health we finished our class book about how to be a friend.

Monday’s Class Leader: Ellie (remember to bring a picture or photo to share!)

See you during conferences.  Mrs Collins will be teaching Monday and Tuesday.  See you in class next Wednesday.

:)  Ms. MacMillan
