Scientists In School!




This week, the Grade One children will be learning about Energy from Scientists in School.  So far, we only have 1 volunteer for Thursday afternoon (12:00-3:00).  We need to have 4-5 volunteers to run the program.  If you are available (Grandparents are welcome too), please let me know.  Thank you!

An Invitation to Kid's Kingdom!

A special thank you goes out to O.R's parents for getting each child in our class a ticket into Kid's Kingdom!  We are thinking it would be great if all of our families could meet an evening next week for a special night of FUN!  Siblings are welcome too; however, families will need to pay for the additional child(ren). Information and tickets will be sent home tomorrow.  We hope to see everyone there!

Dear Parents,   

The children are very excited to be turning our dramatic play station into a Tim Hortons!  They have been making lists of what we need, drawing labels on paper bags and cups...soon will be using playdough to make the donuts!  We are hoping to “open” our Tim Hortons next week with a cash register and menu!  To help in this inquiry, I have arranged for our class to visit the Tim Hortons store inside the Petro Canada across from the school.  The children will have a chance to see the products, how things are organized and how the drive thru runs.  I am sure they will be full of questions and full of ideas to bring back for our Tim Hortons!  Our plan is to walk from the school to the Tim Hortons location with 2 volunteers to assist.  If you are available to volunteer, please let me know.  Permission slips are going home today. Please sign and return the permission form as soon as you can! Thank you!

Dreambox Math

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to some great detective work by D.R's family, we now have a solution for accessing Dreambox Learning from a computer!

 I have put a link on our class site called "Dreambox Math Link."  This link will bring you right to our school's list of classes to play Dreambox.  Find our class and then ask your child to find his/her name. Have fun exploring this great site!

Thank you for your patience!!!

Dreambox Update

Hi everyone!

Last week I sent the school code for students to be able to play Dreambox at home.  Unfortunately, this code does not work when accessing the program on a computer.  I am getting more information about the steps to take in order for the children to play using a computer.  As soon as I get this information and set-up the email accounts, I will send the information home.  I apologize for any frustration it may have caused.
