Next week

Hi everyone,


Just a quick update:

·         Swimming lessons will be continuing next week.  There won’t be a lot of homework until they are done due to us having reduced time in class. Keeping up with reading and working on multiplication facts would be great homework for the students.

·         A reminder: There is no school on Friday, April 22nd and Monday, April 25th.


Have a great weekend!


Happy Easter!

Dear parents,

I just want to thank everyone that came to tri-conferences this week.  I loved the opportunity to interact with you and your child and the students all did a great job of leading the discussions!

Just a quick reminder that we will be swimming when we get back every day from 10:10 to 10:50.  

Also, the second Minecraft group will start as soon as we get back as well from 3:00-4:00 on Mondays.

Finally, I'd like to wish everyone an enjoyable and relaxing Easter break.

I’m sending your child’s report cards home today.  Please review them over the weekend.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me next week or we can discuss them at your child’s conference.
