Grade 5 - September 22 / 2017

Weekly Highlights:
We had a successful Leadership Fair. Your child will be assigned a “job” based on ones they signing up for in the next couple of weeks.

This week our Unit, How We Organize Ourselves, focussed on the different levels of government, Municipal, Provincial and Federal. The students read and documented the responsibilities of each of the types of government.

Number sense and numeration is on everyone’s mind and we will be practising adding and subtracting, as well as getting into multiplication skills soon.

Please respect the rules of the road at drop off and pick up and follow proper York School procedures to ensure everyone’s safety.

The Fall 2017 Co-Curricular Programme commenced the week of September 18th and continues until December 21st.

Looking Ahead:
Student Council Elections - Tuesday, September 26. For those interested in running to be a class rep, elections will be held on this date. One 8.5 x 11 campaign poster can be put up in the classroom.
