Learnings Throughout the Classroom…
After reading The Giving Tree, we made our own giving trees…
Our VIP today was Ethan! Being VIP is an important job in our classroom. We even have a special crown and cape for the VIP! The first job our VIP does is greeting each child when they come in. A “good morning” welcome and a handshake for each child. Ethan rocked it!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
We are starting a VIP program in our class. Every day there will be a different child who will be the designated VIP. The VIP will have special responsibilities in our classroom. They will also have some special homework to bring in.
For the month of October (and early November), we are asking the VIP to bring in a picture of his or her family. It could be a photo, drawing or whatever you child wants to do! Your child will present this picture to the whole class.
Please see the October Calendar to find your child’s name for the date he or she is presenting. Please feel free to contact us should you require further information.

What a whirlwind year! It has been wonderful seeing the students grow, learn, and achieve their goals. We say goodbye to our year 2 students who are off to grade 1, as well as Mrs. Forster and Mrs. Weylie. We will miss you all dearly ❤
Have a wonderful summer and make sure you take time to play, read, and get outside to explore!
Reminder that the first day of school for our returning year 2 students (current year 1) will be WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5th as the first day is reserved for meeting our new year 1 students.
Our trip to Dofasco Rec Park is tomorrow. Here are some reminders for what your child will need tomorrow:
- Water bottle
- Change of clothes and bathing suit
- Litter-less lunch (if you have pudding, applesauce, etc. open and put into a re-sealable container as any wrappers/litter will be placed back in their lunch bags)

Our students loved exploring the Sumblox kit we received from the discovery centre. They were ordering numbers, composing and decomposing numbers, adding, and matching!
It’s so great to see students who typically don’t explore numbers visiting this kit!
