Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the festive season and all are revitalized to begin 2017. Thanks very much for your support of our Christmas family and the best wishes you sent me. Your generosity was very much appreciated.
We have a very busy month ahead. Here’s what we are doing in the next few weeks:
Religion/Family Life - The Baptism of Jesus, the Trinity
Science - Growth and changes in animals
Social Studies - Traditions and celebrations
Language - persuasive writing; non-fiction reading
Math - geometric solids, symmetry
As the weather has become very wintery, I would encourage students to bring extra mitts and socks so they do not have to wear wet items out in the cold. Please also pack a plastic bag so that wet items do not get placed in their backpacks beside their books.
Thank you for continuing to send your children with the supplies they need. Pencils, pencil sharpeners and glue sticks seem to be the items they search for the most often.
Cold and flu season is upon us and the children have used up all the tissues that were brought in at the beginning of the year. It would be great if another box could be sent in.
Thanks for your continued support. I look forward to a great year in 2017!
Yours in education,
Mrs. M. Cresswell
