A Week In Review

Last week, we began a focused literature study of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and The Three Bears. In connection with these stories, we are looking at comparative measurement (smallest and largest), building strong structures (bridges and ramps), story telling (retelling skills), and problem solving.

Reminders

Photo Day

We will be taking our school photos on Wednesday. Please send your child dressed and ready for photos. We do not know what time we will be called, so we do not have time to change for the photo. We will, however, do our best to make sure everyone is looking neat and tidy before their photo.

If you would like to send a change of clothes for your child to change into after the photo, they may.

Weekly Walk

Thank you to Jude's mom, Charise, and Finnley's mom, Madeleine, who joined us for last week's walk. It has been a few weeks since we have been in the Hillside Garden, and the kids were very excited by all the changes that have been made.

Just a quick reminder that this week's walk will be another adventure to High Park. We will be leaving immediately after lunch (12:30) on Thursday.

Some parents have already indicated that they are available to help supervise this hike. If you are wanting to come, please email me to let us know.

Interviews

Last week, most of you received a yellow note in your child's Zippy indicating your interview time. Please make sure you arrive on time. Interviews are scheduled in such a way as to ensure that everyone gets a chance to talk with us about their child, but it is a tight schedule. We only have ten minutes per interview.

If, for some reason, you are unable to make your scheduled time, please email me ASAP and we will try to reschedule you.

Scholastic Orders

December Scholastic order forms went home last week. December is the busiest time at the Scholastic warehouse. In order to ensure that any holiday gifts are received in time, please return your forms by this Thursday (November 13).

If your order is part of a gift, please let me know, and we can arrange a more discrete way of delivery than the Zippies.
