Bonjour Bulletin

At a Glance

What a busy week! We celebrated the 100th Day of school with special activities. We also enjoyed tasting crepes this week. Merci beaucoup to the French Immersion Committee for providing this cultural experience. We worked very hard this week! In French class, we practiced counting to 100 by ones and by tens. We are counting objects and writing the quantity. These are important math skills to have! In the ELA room, we did 100 things! The funniest is was writing about being 100 year olds.

Riverbanks Zoo Penguin Visit

On Thursday, a Riverbanks Zoo representative came to tell us about penguins in the world and penguins that live at the zoo. There are three different types of penguins at the zoo. We learned that a rockhopper penguin can jump over 6 feet. The gentoo can swim as fast as 22 miles an hour. The biggest penguin at the zoo is the King Penguin. They feed the penguins four different types of fish, so they do not get bored. They live about 35 years at the zoo. A group of penguins is called a colony. Penguin feathers are small but very dense. Ask your child to tell you a fact about penguins they learned. Go see the penguins at the Riverbanks Zoo!

Bonne Saint Valentin! Happy Valentine's Day!

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Thursday February 11th:

We have been sending home a list of student names. Have your child write their classmates’ names and sign each card. As a courtesy, please make sure your child has a Valentine/friendship card for every student in his/her class.

Each child needs a “mailbox” to collect their delivered Valentine’s cards. Please help your child decorate a shoebox. Cut a mail slot (large hole) on the top and label the box by the slot with their name. Bring it to school by Tuesday, February 9th.
