Spirit Week!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Everyone!

It was great to see so many of you at Student-Led Conferences this past week. I hope you enjoyed taking a tour of your child’s learning journey 🙂 The kids really looked forward to sharing their hard work and celebrating their successes with you. I always enjoy connecting with the families and watching how excited the students are to share their learning experiences. Thanks for making this a true celebration!

Well with conferences over that can only mean one thing…it is Spirit Week this week!! The email about what’s happening each day went home last week, so I hope everyone was able to read it and get ready for some fun!

Here is a quick reminder courtesy of Bitmoji!!

Monday: Let’s Make a Rainbow-Grade 3s wear green & Grade 4s wear yellow!

Tuesday: Summer Vibes-Wear some of your favourite summer clothing and let’s try to make this snow melt (LOL)! *No swimwear please

Wednesday: Sports Day-Support your favourite team(s) by wearing jerseys, shirts, hats, etc.

Thursday: Superhero Day- Dress in something that makes you feel like a superhero!! This can be a known hero or something you create!!

*Special Note…We are headed back to the forest on Thursday!! Last week we had so much fun with our vertical team and now our 3/4 team has invited us back for more forest fun! We were planned to go from 9:20-11:30 BUT there is a special music presentation happening from 9:00-9:45 so we are changing the time to 10:00-somewhere between 12 and 1. The school division is getting back to us with a time that works best for them during the lunch hour. I will keep everyone posted via Seesaw and Jocelyn will send an email with the confirmed times ASAP. If we are not getting picked up until closer to 1 we will plan to eat a picnic lunch outside! Again, details to come as soon as we can 🙂

Friday: Friluftsliv Friday-Wear something green or a shirt with a tree or other nature vibe! Please note that we will be outside on Friday with our vertical teams so please dress for the weather as well!!

Spirit Week will also include:

-a kick off assembly (Monday)

-hallway dances (1-1:15 daily)

-dodgeball: teachers vs 129

-floor hockey: teachers vs 125

-whole school outdoor dance party (weather permitted on Friday)



What a way to get ready for Spring Break!!

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Until next time,


Spring Ahead!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you all remembered to change your clocks ahead this morning! It’s funny how one hour can mix up your entire daily schedule! I will enjoy that extra daylight in the evening, but will sure miss it in the morning! Well…soon enough we will have plenty of sunshine in the morning and evening!!

Here is a quick note to tell you about this upcoming week. It’ll be a short but busy week!

-Monday: It’s painting day! The kids will be painting objects from the Ancient Civilization they have studied. Note: we will be using acrylic paints, so please either wear or send in clothes that you don’t mind getting messy! We try our best to stay clean, but you never know! *Some students have brought their Inquiry Logs to do their sketches so they can maximize their painting time tomorrow. Please make sure any Inquiry Logs that have been taken home are returned to school tomorrow 🙂

-Report cards will be sent home tomorrow…along with conference times. If the appointment time you have been given doesn’t work, please call the office to make a change.

-Tuesday: We are making information cards for the structures we’ve made. *Some students have brought their Inquiry Logs to do their research so they can maximize their time to make the cards on Tuesday. Please make sure any Inquiry Logs that have been taken home are returned to school tomorrow 🙂 Anyone who hasn’t finished their structure will have a bit more time to finish up any last details.

-Wednesday: Some students have brought their Writer’s Notebooks home to finish up the typing of their narrative stories (using Google Docs). This needs to be completed by Wednesday because we will be printing these stories out for you to read at our conferences! If your child is not able to finish this task at home there will still be some time available at school, but everyone should be getting pretty close to being finished.

-Wednesday will be a “ketchup” day to make sure we are ready for conferences on Thursday/Friday!

-Thursday: Students were given a blue field trip note last week…because we are going to Assiniboine Forest with our Vertical Team (rooms 124 & 125). The weather looks promising, but let’s keep our fingers crossed just in case!

-Conferences begin at 4:00 on Thursday and continue through the evening and all day on Friday. Conference reminders: These are student lead, meaning that they are 30 minutes in length and your child will be taking you on a learning journey! There are up to four families in the room at a time and there will be no one on one sit down opportunities at these appointments. It also means there is no school on Friday!

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

Have a great Sunday evening…#GoJetsGO!

Until next time,
