Welcome Back!

Happy New Year!  We hope that you had a restful and enjoyable holiday. We are excited to be starting a new year and term with your child.

We would like to give a special welcome to our new first grade teacher, Sam Cook.  She has taken over Tracy Smith’s classroom.  Sam is a very experienced educator and we are looking forward to working and learning with her.

We are beginning a new unit this week.  The unit focuses on healthy habits including food, exercise and hygiene.  The first week, the students will be learning about the food groups so they can learn how to make healthy choices.  To help with this understanding, we will be creating a food collage at the end of the week.  We are asking that each child bring in 10 pictures of food.  These can be pictures from the internet, magazines or drawings.  Try to ensure that the pictures are from a variety of food groups.  Please send these with your child on Friday morning at the latest.  Thank you!

Just a reminder that there is no school on Thursday due to Revolution Day.
