JK - October 27 / 2017

Weekly Highlights:

Thank you for coming out on this first round of parent teacher interviews, it was quick but so nice to chat about your child.

This week, the JKs began working on their collage of their pictures depicting themselves at play. The children have been so eager to share their pictures and look forward to presenting them to the class.

We also went for a nature walk through the cemetery for a scavenger hunt. The children collected lots of leaves, twigs and pinecones that we later used for activities such as sorting, sequencing, counting and rubbing.

We having been talking about the importance of colouring on paper and not on walls in the bathroom. We have had two incidences this week so please be sure to speak to your child about colouring on paper only.

Flip Flop Over the Top

Thank you for practising the 'flip flop over the top' method with your child. It really shows, they are becoming such speedy dressers.

In French, the students have been learning a song about Halloween called C’est l’Halloween!.

C'est l'Halloween!

This week in Art, students added the finishing touches to their carpet designs. The finished pieces showcase each student’s knowledge of line and pattern.

A big thank you to the JS community!
70 costumes collected
64 accessories
100 more kids helped

A total of 312 kids in Toronto received costumes from New Circles thanks to your support!

Looking Ahead:

Please send in a small pumpkin pie pumpkin with your child with their name on the bottom by Monday. The children will be decorating theses and they will be sent home in time for Halloween.


Thank you for keeping our food policy in mind when preparing your child’s healthy snacks.
