Sparling Newsletter

Jan. 27, 2021

Dear Families,

The winter weather has definitely arrived! Some of our classes enjoyed trying to blow bubbles and watching them freeze! Please make sure your child comes to school prepared for the weather! In this newsletter you will also find some new sight words to review with your child at home, information on Global School Play Day, and a request for toque and mitt donations!

BRSD is also looking for your feedback! Below you will find a link to a very quick survey regarding the Quarter System. Please take a few minutes to complete. Your input is greatly appreciated.

We are looking forward to kicking off February with Global School Play Day on Feb. 3! Your child's teacher will be sending out information on this day with information specific to their class. Stay tuned for pictures!

Lastly I want to share two Sparling Literacy Leaders!

  • Carter B for working hard on his reading this week
  • Peighton D for doing an amazing poem connected to their Novel Study

Each newsletter we will recognize our Sparling Stars who are working hard in the area of Literacy and Numeracy!

Global School Play Day - Feb. 3, 2021

Why Play Day? Free play is essential for children's healthy social and emotional development and this day gives students an opportunity to play, create, innovative, discover, and communicate! Please watch for communication from your child's teacher with information about the day, expectations, and if they are able to bring in an item. We are working hard to ensure COVID safety proctocols are in place and followed.

Toques, Mitts, and Water Bottles Needed

We are in need! If you are able to donate toques, mitts, or water bottles please contact the office. We ask that items dropped off are in a bag, so we can set them aside for a period of time to ensure COVID procedures are followed.

Thank you for your support!
