Hi KA teammates,
I’m so sad to have missed this week with the class and I’m excited to see them again next week. I’d like to welcome 4 new Grade 1 students to the class who started this past week!
The Terry Fox Run date has been changed to next Wednesday afternoon. I’m glad that we will have more of an opportunity to learn about Terry and the legacy he has left for Canadians.
This week the school had another chance to practice a Fire Drill and they completed their first Bus Evacuation drill.
In Math this week students had lots of play based practice creating, extending, and identifying patterns. Next week we will learn how to record patterns as well.
The class had their first Library class on Wednesday and got to listen to a read aloud from Ms. Graham and explore our wonderful library space.
Tuesday was Picture Day! Always an exciting time in primary grades. The proofs will be sent home in a few weeks for you decided if you would like to order or if you like to request retakes.
The second annual National Day for Truth & Reconciliation is this coming week. We will be learning about what it means to be Indigenous, and that schools should be safe and comfy for all students. On Thursday, West Kent will dress in orange shirts and we are honored to have PEI’s Poet Laureate and author Julie Pellissier-Lush and the Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors present at an assembly.
Kits for Kindness Free Snack Bags
Kits for Kindness is a program that provides a free weekly bag of snack foods to be sent home in a child’s backpack each week to help support food security.
If you would like for your child to receive a weekly free bag of snacks, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher and their name will be added to our school list. If you have previously received these bags you will continue to be on our list.
