Please remember that our weekly spelling test will happen tomorrow morning, as there is no school for students Friday.

The first graders' book tonight is called "Witch Rules". Enjoy!

We had our first taste of Brain Boost today! If you haven't signed up yet for a Brain Boost shift, check yesterday's note (sent home in agenda pockets) and you can follow the directions on how to help out.

If you haven't already looked at the photos from yesterday, scroll down for a peek. We have some pretty cute witches in this class!

I'll end this post with a quick reminder to add your child's name in their outdoor clothing: boots, jackets, snow pants, mittens, toques ... everything! It's amazing how many articles of clothing end up in our school's Lost and Found. It's pretty easy to return things to their owners with names, however, so get out those sharpies and start labelling!

There will be a note regarding the school's Brain Boost program in your child's agenda pocket. Brain Boost fruits and veggies should be arriving soon!

There will be no school for students this Friday. Our weekly spelling test will be Thursday morning, instead.

The first graders' book to read aloud tonight is a scintillating descriptive tale about a witch. Enjoy!

We wrote some cool witch rules in class today; stand by for a book to come home listing those rules. Here's some photos of the authors of that witchy book:

School photos will be taken next Tuesday (October 24th). Information regarding this went home today in the agenda pockets.

The first graders' spelling list this week is based on the "ing" family. We're learning that if you know one word (like all), you can figure out lots of other words (like call, wall, mall, fall, tall, etc.).

The first grade students' book to read to a willing household member is "Meet Bart and Martha". Enjoy! (There is no need to return this book to school.)

We had a Fire Prevention Week presentation today. The students in Grades One and Two are bringing home fire prevention materials, including a pamphlet about designing an escape route from home. If your child completes the escape route plan with you and brings the form back to school, their name will be entered into a draw to become Fire Chief for a day! Some fun!

Spelling test books went home with the first graders. Please sign and return them Monday morning. T

The envelope reading book today is a short and sweet one: Jack-O-Faces. Again, please add the book's title and the date it was read on the envelope's paper.

Thanks to everyone who returned the permission forms for the upcoming school field trip. Please return the permission form asap if you haven't already done so. Thanks.

The first graders are entering a new phase with their home learning: they're going to read to the parents (or other caregivers) now, instead of the reverse! Check your child's backpack for a laminated envelope with a scintillating pumpkin story tucked inside. Once your child has read the book to you and you've gushed over their great reading, please print the book's title and the date it was read on the cover of the envelope. There is no need to return the pumpkin book; you can keep it for your home library. Happy reading, everyone!

The first graders have a spelling test tomorrow on the "ot" words. Study hard!

This is Fire Prevention Week! We'll have a presentation from the fire department later this week, but if you'd like to learn more about fire prevention, there will be an Open House at the fire hall this evening from 6:30 - 8:00. There are lots of activities planned for the Open House; everyone hwo attends always has a good time!

The first graders are bringing home the new spelling list family of "ot" words this week. Have fun practicing!
