 November/December Home Task

I would like each family to complete the pet sheet in your children’s planners. The children need only print their names on the sheet and can dictate the rest to you. My intention is to make a book about the pets that they have or would like one day. They love to read about themselves and their families.

Assembly Information:

Our class is performing a song at the Remembrance Day Assembly with division 7. Children are encouraged to wear a white top and dark bottoms (skirt, leggings, pants). All children will be given a poppy to wear. There will be a school wide collection. Please tape any donations to the front cover of your child’s planner. For those families with preschool children, I want to give you heads-up that this assembly is long and serious. Due to the nature of the assembly, there will be no photography or applause. I will bring the class back into the gym at the end of the assembly to provide families with a photo opportunity. At 1:00pm, I would be grateful if a few adults could meet in the classroom to help put on poppies. If you are doing this, I recommend that you put a coat on a seat in the gym ahead of time or ask someone to save you a seat.

Halloween

On October 31st there will be a costume parade in the afternoon. Children are encouraged to go home for lunch this day so that their families can help dress them in their costumes.  In order to help dress the children who are unable to go home, I will need a couple of volunteers at 1:00pm. Families are invited into the class for a photo opportunity at this time. Your child’s costume should allow your child to take part in regular classroom activities as well as allow them to go to the washroom independently. Please send in a change of clothes, as many of the children like to change out of their costume to take part in class activities in the afternoon.

I would be grateful if two families would provide a small nut-free treat so that the children can have a couple of treats that day. Please let me know if you are able to do this. (If more than 2 families volunteer, I will confirm who is sending in treats via the blog or email).

October 30th - November 3rd

Thank you so much to the parents who were able to join us on our first field trip. The children have produced some drawings and remembered a lot about our afternoon.

Reminders for this week:
Monday October 30th: Please return library books to the white basket in class if you have not already done so.

Tuesday October 31st: Thank you to Madison’s mom who is providing cupcake treats for us to have at lunch time. Please read the Halloween email with details about the afternoon.

Wednesday November 1st:  Please return the letter Ee alphabet sheet for sharing. Early dismissal is at 1:45pm.

Thursday October 26th: Field trip to the pumpkin patch: please ensure that children are dressed ready for rain and mud and remember to bring in their car seat. If you have volunteered to drive, you are needed. If you plan to drive just your own child, the volunteer driver section of the form still needs to be completed. Due to the nature of this field trip, please make alternative child care arrangements for younger siblings if you have volunteered to drive. Please remember to pack two plastic bags for your child – put them in your child’s coat or jacket so that they are ready for the pumpkin patch. If you are driving and normally drop off in the morning, please come inside the classroom then and collect car seats as this speeds up the process in the afternoon.

Friday October 27th: There is hot lunch for those who have pre-ordered. Please remember to still send in water and a snack.
