Winter Is Here!
All schools in the North Shore District will engage in outdoor recess unless temperatures are at or below 15 degrees (including wind chill) or if there is precipitation (not including light snow). Students will also be allowed to come into our buildings before school when the temperature is at 15 degrees or below including wind chill.
Please remind your child to bring the following winter gear if s/he would like to play in the snow during recess:
- Snow pants
Reading Book Bags
1. Think of an idea (something that you do, something that happened to you)
2. Plan it out (plan it out on your fingers)
3. Write (sketch first, then draw)
Next week we will work on adding detail and we will have our first Author's Chair where students can share a story they wrote.
