Although I told you all before, it deserves saying again: you did an excellent job of reciting In Flanders Fields at the assembly on Thursday. I was very proud of the effort that everyone put in to learn and perform the poem in such a small time frame. I've posted a video of our final rehearsal in the Pictures section for anyone who wants to watch/show your parents. I hope today you find some time to pause and reflect on Remembrance Day and what it means to you. Enjoy your day off tomorrow and I will see you all back in class on Tuesday.
Division 7 celebrated Halloween over two days, first carving pumpkins on Tuesday before having a party and wearing costumes on Wednesday. The carving took most of the day, but I was very proud of the effort and final result put in by all of the students. The costumes were amazing, as was the amount of food brought in for our movie party! It was an excellent two days. There are LOTS of photos posted in the Pictures section for you to see and enjoy. Next up for Division 7 will be the Remembrance Day assembly, where we will be reciting In Flanders Fields for the school!
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).
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.
