Swimming Forms must be returned Tomorrow - Thursday, January 9th.  The pool MUST
have them so they can create student groupings.  Please return the form, even if you are unable to
send the money right away.  $15 is being asked from each student to cover a portion of the cost of lessons and transportation for the week.  If you are unable to pay the $15 fee, please contact Mrs. Traquair directly to talk about payment options. Thank you to those who have already returned these forms.

Ask your child:
- how they are modeling this month's virtue: EMPATHY
- to demonstrate their understanding of division with a picture
-what a decomposer is
- about the Literacy event next Thursday - did they put their name in for the draw to receive a book bag
*selected students have "MEDIA RELEASE" forms to bring back tomorrow

Monday January 6, 2014

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season!

Important information coming home today
Swimming lessons will begin January 20 - 24. Please review and sign the field trip forms coming home today so your child can participate. Students will be grouped based on ability so this gives all students a chance to enhance (or begin) their swimming skills. Classes will travel in groups of two or three classes to Village Square Leisure Centre by bus. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact me. All forms and $15 are due back by Thursday January 9.

We will be needing volunteers to help support us during swim week. Our class will be traveling during the morning and will be returning before lunch each day (exact timing will be provided at a later date). If you will be able to support us during this time, please let me know as we would love to have as many volunteers as we can!

Daily Reading and Writing
Daily practice of reading and writing is extremely important. Students are encouraged to read daily on Raz Kids or a paper copy of a book. Also, please have your child write each night. They can be  writing about their day or a book, or writing about their favourite things. Please help support your child by setting aside time for this daily practice.
