Before and After shots of a tired group! It was a great day for the Walkathon. Not too hot, not too cold, and no rain. The class did a great job. Please make sure that all donation envelopes are returned to the school no later than Thursday next week.
These pictures are a few students short, so I think it is also worth mentioning that sickness is cycling through the school, and division 11 in particular. As of this afternoon, after a few phoned to go home after the Walkathon, we have 6 absent from class (and I'd guess a few more that should, but are going to try to hold on until the weekend). While at school, everyone should remember to wash their hands regularly, especially before eating. If you are really sick, please do your best to stay home. Rest will help you get better more than a math lesson. Work can always be made up. Arrangements can be made. Limiting the amount of people we spread sickness to is greatly appreciated. I know it's not always possible, but taking care of yourself so you can heal and not have a sickness get worse is important. Rest up this long weekend and I hope to see many healthy faces back on Tuesday.
The weather held out and I think everywhere had an amazing time at Playland. Sadly, I didn't take too many pictures because everyone went off in their own (fun) directions and I found myself waiting in ride lineups far from many of you. I took pictures where I could. The rest are in the Pictures section. Don't worry if it is not enough pictures - I got you covered! I have also added the pictures from our past two science experiments and our pictures from Science World (finally)!
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.
