Grade 6 Class

January 2018
Happy New Year!
The first term flew and now Christmas has come and gone.  Now we look forward to a term of solid learning.  It's a good one.  New Math topic, new novel to read, new Socials and Science topics, too.  A fresh start after what was hopefully a restful break.


A few dates to consider :
Skiing - Wednesday, January 24
             Spaghetti Dinner - Gr6 dessert sale
             Wednesday, February 7

Reminder :  All parents who wish to volunteer / drive need a NEW driver's abstract and copy of your insurance papers
                    along with a Criminal Records Check on file (valid for 5 years)    Check with the office if unsure.



Homework Book is the  best form of communication.  Please feel free to make notes, comments or requests in the HWB as I check these daily.  I also post important dates, assignments and information, along with weekly spelling words, on this web site each week.

Library is Monday - each student is able to take out two library books for a week.  They are to be returned / renewed each Monday.  If the books are not processed on Monday, the student is not able to take another library book.

PE is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday - Full gym strip required i.e. Running shoes, shorts / leggings, t-shirt
                                                                            * missing gym strip 3 times within a term results in dropped grade
                                                                      -    Need written permission from parent if excused from gym (HWB), especially if for an extended time.

Novel - each student must have a novel in their desk for personal reading at all times.  There are books available within the classroom if necessary.



Reminder :  All parents who wish to volunteer / drive need a NEW driver's abstract and copy of your insurance papers
                    along with a Criminal Records Check on file (valid for 5 years)



Here's to a year of growth in learning, faith and social development......  And perhaps a little fun, too.
With kind regards, 
Lexie Wilson
