JK - May 25 / 2018

With this warm weather, please make sure that your child has a sun hat and that you apply sunscreen to them before school. If you like, you may also send in sunscreen that they may reapply themselves if necessary.

Does bigger always mean heavier? This was the discussion earlier in the week. We pull out several objects specifically for this conversation: a feather, a marble, a balloon and a tennis ball. First, we asked the students, Which ones are bigger? Both the feather and the tennis ball are bigger. Then we asked, Which ones are heavier? The marble is heavier than the feather, even though the feather is bigger, and the balloon is much lighter than tennis ball, even though it is much bigger.

As we approach the end of the school year, the children have been busy finishing up their Handwriting Without Tears books, and going through their journals. The children have been introduced to some new vocabulary when describing weight such as grams, kilos, ounces, pounds, heavier than and lighter than.

Friday, June 1, 2018 - York School Athletic Wear Casual Day 

Next Friday, June 1 we will be tie-dying t-shirts in our House Meetings. Students are to come to school Friday, June 1st in their PE uniform

Students will be bringing their house coloured tie-dyed t-shirt home on Friday afternoon in a plastic bag. Please remind your child to take the bag out of their backpack when they get home as the the elastic bands will need to be removed and the t-shirt will need to be washed and dried. The t-shirts are for the students to wear for our Track & Field Day on Friday, June 8th to show house spirit.
