MATH NIGHT

Reserve the 4th October for the annual Math Night. Like Back to School you may wish to present in teams. If doing it individually ensure you discuss as a team for consistency. Time will be discussed at the next Team Leaders meeting.

ASSEMBLIES

  • Peace assembly next week 8-48 to 9.20 in the Gym.
  • We will start our first ESLR activity event in October. These will be rotational events that will happen 4 times during the year – October, November, January and April. The students will be divided into colour groups and lower and upper elementary groups. This requires people to find a partner and sign up to lead an activity.

Thank you to Becca for agreeing to organise this. Becca will be sharing a Google Doc with you on Monday afternoon so that you can sign up on before the end of next week. If you have not signed up or there is no more space left, don’t worry we will assign you a role. Thank you in advance for helping with these events. This should be a great learning experience and fun for all.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Author visit – save the dates and times that impact your class level.

HS Symphonic Band – Nov 7th at 10:00 am in the area near the Library (see invite below)

Teachers, Students,

Once again the HS Symphonic Band will be presenting our Children’s Concert for elementary school students. The concert will feature the full 40 piece ensemble as well as small ensemble instrument demonstrations. This year’s concert will feature “The Best of Green Day”, Taylor Swift’s “Safe and Sound” from the Hunger Games and music from “How to Train Your Dragon”. In addition we’ll have participation from some of our audience members. We look forward to seeing you there.

SAVE THE DATE

I am hoping to have an elementary school event at my house on October the 5th at 4 pm. I will hopefully be able to organise a bus from school to get you there.

Please feel free to bring your partners. Unfortunately this time it will be an adult only event. I hope to organise a more family friendly event in the near future. More information to come.

COMING SOON

Professional Learning Sites for all teachers. This is where your goal setting, observations and other professional learning will be housed.

Have a fabulous weekend. Monday is Day 4….
