What's Up This Week?
Social Justice Project News: The committee of students organizing the book sale are looking for gently used children's books for the sale in March. If you have any books at home that you are willing to part with, please send them to school as soon as possible so the students can begin sorting and pricing.
The lettuce sales are going strong and the towers continue to produce wonderful lettuce crops. If you are interested in purchasing a bag of organic lettuce, please send in $5.
All proceeds from our Social Justice initiatives are going to support the Therapeutic Clowning Program at CHEO.
Stay tuned for news from our Chew For CHEO committee as they are getting organized for their fun activity for a great cause.
The Book Clubs have wrapped up their reading assignments. The students worked very hard during this project and were really engaged in their book club chats. They are now working collaboratively to promote their books, in a creative way. I will post links to their projects...stay tuned!
Math: We will be continuing our Number Sense Unit with the focus on Multiplication and Division. Students should be working towards improving fact fluency, using ReflexMath. Achieving their green circle, at least 5 times a week, will go a long way to improving their fluency. Students are already beginning to see the benefits of knowing their math facts when working on word problems.
Next Monday is Family Day...don't forget it's a school holiday too!
Have a great week everyone!
