Our school has taken the initiate to fill some buckets for local charities within our community. It is important for our students to know that there are people in need, right here in Guelph and that we can all help out in a small way. We have a bucket in our class to be filled with toiletries/bathroom items (toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, brushes, shampoo, conditioner, hair products, hair elastics/clips, cream, shaving items, cotton balls/swabs, soap, rubber duckies, bath toys, etc...). If you would like your child to help fill our bucket, please send any new toiletry item in before the end of February. MERCI !
Valentine's Day is this Friday. If your child wishes to bring Valentine's cards, please ensure that there is one for each student. We have 31 students in our class. There is no need to print each classmate's name, just your child's name. To make it even easier, have your child sign his/her name on a few cards each day.
We would like to continue our healthy eating with a yummy fruit salad to celebrate Valentine's Day. If you can, please contribute 1-2 pieces of fruit and we will cut them up for a treat. We will be searching the Internet for a dairy & egg-free dip. Please email us if you have a great one we can use.
We will have a Kindergarten 100th Day celebration on the last Friday of the month, February 28th. The children can dress up as 100 year olds and we will have various activities in the gym (like Beach Day), along with a parade around the school.
If you would like to help out with the celebrations, please let us know. Thank you again to our weekly parent volunteers. Whether you are making play dough, sending in craft supplies, asking your child about their day, or coming to school to help, we greatly appreciate your support!
Senior Kindergarten students received their report card last week. Please review this with your child and talk about their successes. We have included 2 copies (one for you to sign and return to school and the other for you to keep). If you would like to discuss your child's progress, please send us an email and we will set up a time to meet.
Junior Kindergarten students will receive a formal report card in June. At the beginning of March, we will have parent-teacher interviews (Monday, March 3rd & Wednesday, March 5th) between 3:30-5:15pm. If there is a time that suits you best please send us an email, otherwise we will sign you up for a time. If you are unavailable during these 2 days, please send us an email and we will find a time that suits your needs.
Have a great night!
