Student Vote

I am incredibly impressed with the grade 6s enthusiasm towards learning about our local government and the provincial elections.  All of the grade 6s cast their votes for our local candidates today.  We will be submitting our results and see how the student vote compares to the outcome on election day!

Can't wait to see the results!

Language Arts

1. Complete your worksheet on dialogue punctuation.  Use your notes and the handout we corrected today to help you.

2.  Write a conversation between 2 people.  In your conversation, each person may speak twice.  The rest of the paragraphs should be narrative.  (So tell a part of a story with 2 people involved who speak twice each.)  This mini-assignment should be one third to half a page.

Hot Lunch Update

-There will be NO items sold to students for cash the day of hot lunch. There are two reasons for this: we don’t always have food left over, if parents are sending their children to school expecting them to be able to purchase items, there may be no items to purchase and their child may go hungry which is unacceptable. Also, we are having the teachers redistribute extra / left over food to the children in their class whom they know to get little to no lunch. This way they can ensure they are getting food and be able to perform the follow up with the parents as required.
-No late orders will be accepted.
