October 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian(s):

It was so nice to meet many of you at the Open House.  I look forward to continuing to celebrate your child’s success throughout the year.  

We are having a great start to Grade One.  The students are adjusting quite nicely to the routines of a new school year.  Here is some information about our class and a few reminders.  

Currently, our gym days are Mondays and Wednesdays.  Our library day is Thursday morning.  I will inform you if anything changes.  French is taught by Mr. Tanguay on Mondays, Wednesdays and alternate Fridays and The Arts is taught by Mrs. Bayford on Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternate Fridays. 

Our Home Reading Program will begin shortly after Thanksgiving.  Our Spelling Program will begin shortly as well.  

I would ask that you continue to not send toys with your child to school.  A reminder that your child needs school appropriate footwear that he/she can independently manage and use for all activities. Also, please ensure your child brings in proper eating utensils when needed. 

The following is a list of subject areas and details about what we will be focussing on for the month of October.  

Religion/Family Life: Praying (on-going), We Belong to God, Created and Loved by God. 

Language: Poems of the week, a variety of reading methods, Journal writing, Phonics, group discussions, and Show and Share.

Math: Weather Graph, Calendar (daily), Number Relationships, Time, Temperature and Money

Science: What is Science, Daily and Seasonal Changes

Social Studies: Our Families, Thanksgiving and Community

Visual Arts: Thanksgiving and Hallowe’en

As always, should you have any questions and/or concerns please call me at the school, 705-728-2302 or write me a note and place it in your child’s agenda.  It is a convenient way to communicate between home and school.  Your child uses the agenda to record events and/or homework.  

Yours in Catholic Education,

Ms. Moore
