St. Elizabeth Catholic School E-Newsletter
From the Principal’s Desk
Learning to love mathematics has been the focus for our grade one and two students during the past two weeks. Math Resource Teacher, Melanine Biesenthal has worked closely with teachers to plan and teach lessons designed to foster a sense of excitement when learning to solve problems. Our grade one and two teachers continue to participate in math professional development through Lakehead University. Parents and Guardians are strongly encouraged to discuss and review math concepts learned in the classroom on a daily basis.
