This month has been a busy one! Report cards came out at the beginning of next month; if you would like to see me to discuss your child’s progress, please feel free to contact me at the school. The class has been wrapping up their study of fractions and number theory in math, and have moved on to begin exploring measurement. In social studies, we have been discussing some current events and hot news items. We are starting to look at political cartoons and how we can interpret them. We are going to move on to a novel study soon. Science has the class looking into and studying temperature and heat. On Feb 12, we were finally able to get outside and have some fun as a class. We went to Brightwater for a sledding morning, then had a potluck, and wrapped up the day at the rink, skating. Thanks to Mrs. Barbara Farnsworth and Mr. Don Archibald, who came out to the hill and spent the morning with us. Also, I would just like to say how overwhelmed I was with the contributions to our potluck! The generosity and quality of all the items was humbling! Thank you to all the students and families. In closing, as always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at the school (544-2511) or by email (Nicole.Bain@spiritsd.ca).
