Week of January 13th

2014 is in Full Swing!

Hi Everyone!!

Are you back in the swing of things?? Hopefully last week was an easy adjustment back into the routines of school. Sometimes it just takes a few days to get back on track. This is a great time to think about what worked and what didn't work from before break. Re-organize if needed and be ready to put your best foot forward!

If you are in Term 2 or 3, please pay close attention to the dates below. I don't want the end of semester to sneak up on you.

I've been enjoying seeing all of your smiling faces in conferences, and look forward to re-connecting with everyone over the next couple of weeks. Remember to bring something to share when we conference. I love seeing what you've been up to :)

Talk to you soon,

Ms. Tiffany

Please send any pictures, stories of exciting news and/ or hard work that you want to share with the class. This can be school and non school related. It can be as big as landing a part in a local play, to finally writing you numbers in the right direction.

Let’s celebrate it all TOGETHER!!!
