Musical Theatre Performance

Dear Parents,


On Thursday, May 10th parents are invited to come to the school gym to watch various Musical Theatre presentations by students from Kindergarten to grade six. The full school performance will last just over an hour.


Our class has been working on singing and doing actions for the song called “Believe”. Our grade 6 students are invited to wear a costume/clothing related to the song.

Some ideas include:
  • Snow White characters
  • Bollywood
  • Hip-hop (black and camo)
*Costumes need to be at school by Monday, April 30th for our dress rehearsal.


In order to accommodate all parents, we are presenting two shows.


The schedule will be as follows:


Morning Performance 9:45 am
Parents with children who have the last name initial beginning from A-L are invited to the morning performance.


Afternoon Performance 1:30 pm
Parents with children who have the last name initial beginning from M-Z are invited.

The Dance team will also perform before or after the musical theatre performances (time is not yet confirmed)


We look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,
Mrs.Marchant

Grade 6 Ski Trip Canceled due to Freezing Rain

Unfortunately, the buses are not running today and we will need to reschedule the trip. I am just as disappointed as the kids. Hopefully, we can get things organized soon. Stay tuned for more details.

Grade 4 Math Quiz-Measurement on Thursday


Students have been working on Measurement since the break. We will be having our end of unit quiz on Thursday. Students will need to know the following information:

  • convert units of measure (kilometer, meter, centimeter, millimeter) by moving the decimal and understanding the quantity of each measure. (Ex. 3cm = ? mm)
  • calculate the distance around a shape that is missing sides (solve for the missing sides first) and calculate the total perimeter.
  • find the area of a shape using square units OR a formula (A=L X W). Make sure to put the little 2 above the units to show that you measured area.
  • determine which unit of measurement would best suit measuring specific distances and/or objects.
  • solve problem-solving questions where students are given a specific perimeter or area and will need to draw and label different shapes to show the perimeter or area. 
  • All exit slips and practice questions have been marked and handed back to students so they can study.

Grade 6 Ski Trip-February 16th & 23rd


This morning we met with Mrs.Moorman's class and went over the rules and procedures for the grade 6 ski trip. 

Here are a few of the points we covered:
  • Students who are not going on the ski trip are still welcome at school. Please let us know your plans for your child not attending the ski trip so that we can make arrangements.
  • Bring cash if you are wanting to purchase food from the concession
  • Backpacks stay on the floor.
  • Students are allowed to bring technology for the bus, but are not to be on their device taking photos on the hill. Teachers will be taking pictures and posting at a later date. Please respect this rule as we have to protect individuals right to privacy and not everyone has permission to have their picture taken and shared.
  • Stay on the ski runs designated for your level.
  • Make sure you remember the number on your skis so that you put on the correct skis.
  • The bus will return by 6:30pm Friday.
