WEEK 18 Reminders

Agenda for Janurary 7th Community Day

  • The primary attending adult member of each family should have clearances completed by this time! If you have not yet provided me copies for your file, please turn them into Chenwen during our community day this week (you could also e-mail them to me beforehand).
  • We have the privilege of hosting one or more visiting families this week. If you see some new faces, please welcome them and help them find their way!
  • Our Fine Arts project this week will involve pounding chalk and making paint; please send your student/s with an old shirt or smock if you'd like to guard against getting extra colors on their clothing. :)

ARRIVAL

  • All are welcome to join in prayer for our community in the Journeyman classroom (following the tutor meeting at 8:50).
  • Any others are asked to settle and fellowship downstairs...there is hot water and tea available in the kitchen (please remember to bring your own cup with a lid).
  • Let's all help all our children stay safe and remind them that there is no running anywhere in the building.

DISMISSAL TO CLASSES

CLASSROOM PARENTS
The program is designed for parents to attend class with their student/s as we learn alongside each other. As some parents also tutor and/or have children in multiple classes, a classroom parent is assigned on a rotating basis to ensure that there is at least one other support person with the tutor in each classroom at all times.
  • Abecedarians- Poinson
  • Apprentices- Wong
  • Jouneyman- Stevens
  • Masters- Brown


STUDENT PRESENTATIONS

  • Skill Focus: Eye contact: try to look at the audience when you speak
  • Topic Suggestion: Tell us about your Christmas holidays. What are some traditions you enjoy? Did you travel? Whom did you see?
