The grade 7 classroom is full of excitement for this Christmas Season! I just know all the kids are on Santa’s “Nice” list! However, along with all the happiness, we are sad to see our intern, Mrs. Kinzel, wrap up her time with us. She has been a pleasure to have around and her positive and outgoing spirit will be missed. Thanks for everything, Mrs. Kinzel! Good luck in your future career!
We have been working through fractions in math and “What’s so Funny?” in English. In social, we are beginning a new unit that will explore political, economic and social influences on the quality of one’s life. In science, we have just wrapped up Characteristics of Life. We have been working hard and have earned out Christmas Break!
In January, we are planning on going to Table Mountain for a day of downhill skiing! We are tentatively booked for January 27th, but depending on the amount of snow, we may need to postpone. Nevertheless, the Grade 7s will be fundraising for this outing. We will be selling Prairie Meats as a fundraiser. We will begin this fundraiser shortly after we return from Christmas Break. On January 17th, the Outreach Program from the Saskatchewan Science Centre will be in Hanley to work with our K-7 students. Each age group will be taking part in age appropriate science explorations! More information will be sent home early in the New Year.
In closing, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas. May your lives be filled with Blessings and all the best to you and yours in the coming New Year! As always, please do not hesitate to call me should you have any ques- tions or concerns. I can be reached at the school, 544-2511, or by email.
