FIRST WEEK A SUCCESS!

Students did a great job this week settling into the first week of school. They met new classmates, learned routines in their classrooms, took tours of the school and practiced a fire drill. Students also explored books and manipulatives, shared their interests through pictures and words, and began their specialist schedules. Lunch for Grades 1-5 and recesses were also a success.

ART SMOCKS NEEDED

Please send a smock to school with your child. An oversized t-shirt works well. Please use permanent marker and label it with your child's name. Students will keep their smock in their locker and bring it with them when they go to art class.


Thank you!

Art Specialist
