We had a beautiful day for our Terry Fox Run on Friday. We ran from recess to lunch to honour Terry's legacy and as a culmination of our weeks of donating to help fund cancer research. As a school, we raised over $700! Very proud of this group and everything they did to help such a worthy cause. More photos are in the pictures section of the website. Come speak to me if you have forgotten the password (parents can ask their children, as they should all know it by now).
So there it is...the inside of my leg. They took that X-Ray today and told me I am all healed - sort of. I don't need to see the surgeon anymore, but the process of getting my leg back to normal is still ongoing. I can start wearing my brace less. I can start to learn to run. I can skate again. I might be able to play sports again by November or December. It's a happy day, but I still have a lot of work ahead of me.
I hope you all had a great Friday without me and can't wait to get back to work on Monday!
Have a great weekend!
Welcome to all parents and students. Classes officially switched today and I couldn't be happier with the new group of students I received. I am still learning names and learning more about students and look forward to meeting families in the near future. Meet the Teacher night is on September 20 and I hope to talk with some parents then. If you would like to see me sooner just to introduce yourself you can pop by the classroom (222). If you need a longer chat, contact me using the form on this website or the student agenda and we can set up a time.
I look forward to meeting you all in the near future and having a great grade 4 year!
This Blog will provide updates on what is happening in the classroom, as well as a small peak into the life of the teacher outside of school.
Welcome Students and Parents of Division 7!
I hope that this will be a place where we can better open the lines of communication between myself, the students and the parents/guardians. I also hope to use this space as part of my general encouragement to use various forms of technology to help us learn in different and meaningful ways.
