September Update

A huge thank you to all parent/grandparent volunteers who volunteered their time to accompany us to the Richmond Fair last Thursday. The children truly enjoyed this trip and had many stories to share :)

It was nice to have the opportunity to meet with many of you at our Program Night. Thank you for checking and signing the agendas on a nightly basis and sending Kleenex boxes. It is much appreciated.

The children have adjusted well to their new teachers, routines and expectations. We are working on attentive listening and following instructions :) The homework duotang will be going home on Monday. More information will be included on the first page of the duotang.

Our first school Mass - Tuesday, Sept. 24 (in the gym).

September Scholastic book order - due Wednesday, Sept. 25. It's also our Library day - please return the library books.

Terry Fox walk/run and Crazy Sock Day - Friday, Sept. 27 (2:50 - 3:30 pm). No parent volunteers are needed as we will be walking on school property. Parents are welcome to join us :) Students are encouraged to dress for the weather and label their water bottles. More information to come.

Welcome to Grade 1

Welcome to our Grade One classroom blog! Here you can find updated information about classroom news and events as well as curriculum highlights.


Thank you to everyone for returning the different forms that were sent last week :) Our school provides supplies (crayons, pencils, errasors, etc.) for students, however,students may bring their own supplies if they wish. It would be beneficial for your child to have a change of clothes (socks, underwear, pants, top) in a labeled bag that will be used throughout the year in case of minor accidents (to be left in their knapsack). Also, you might consider sending a colouring book or activity book for indoor recess during inclement weather (to be left at school).

Gym - Wednesday and Friday (Block 3) 

Library - Wednesday (Block 3)

Program Night
Wednesday, September 18, we will be having a Program Night at school (6:30 pm – 8:00 pm). At this time I will go over classroom routines, homework, curriculum expectations and answer any questions you may have. 

Please continue to sign and return the agenda to school each day with your child. I look forward to working with you to make your little one’s Grade One experience a successful one.

Have a nice week!
