Happy Monday!

Hello Families,
I had a great day with the students. We had to work on the Ministry Math exam, but apart from that we had a great discussion about a favorite book of mine, 'Whose Mouse are You?' by Robert Kraus, and we worked on grammar and text response using the book as a springboard. It was interesting to hear the students express their ideas and to share opinions with each other.

This week there are a few particular things I want to call you attention to:

*Interim Reports went home today - they need to be signed and sent back to school

*Cross-Country Run will take place Wednesday for students involved. I will accompany them to the race, and we will have a supply teacher for those who stay behind.

*Thursday the nurse from the CSSS (former CLSC) will be giving the students a 2-hour first aid course.

* There have been cases of lice in the school. Please tie up long hair to help prevent lice spreading.

* Back to school time is now over, but it is a good time of year to have your child's eyes checked. Exams are free for children under 12 years,and recommended for all, particularly if one or both parents wear glasses. At this age it is important to keep track of this, especially if your child complains of headaches.

As always, please ensure that your child reads every night, adn you can keep track of homework using the link on the right.

All my best to you! Have a wonderful week,
Kathy Napier
