We had a great couple of weeks, and enjoyed some extra time off. We started our Addition and Subtraction unit in Math, and we've begun our first Social unit (studying Regions and First Peoples of Alberta [grade 4] and Canada [grade 5]).
This week, we are focusing on Mental Math, and preparing for our Quiz next week. We'll be finishing the first part of our Social units so that we can move on to the Poster Projects! As well, unfortunately, our class photo did not turn out well (apparently there was some equipment malfunction) so we have been invited to have a new picture taken on Tuesday.
Reminders for the week:
- dress nice on Tuesday for class picture
Also, as per the note sent home last week, the money raised through our annual Dragon Days fundraiser has been significantly lower than previous years. As it stands, the parent council will not have enough money to fund things like Scientists in Schools, which they have traditionally funded for our classes. The fundraiser has been extended to Friday Oct 26. Thank you so much to those of you who have already pitched in to raise money for our school!
