Welcome back after the extra long weekend! Today’s Remembrance Day Celebration was enhanced by the presence of dignitaries from the Armed Forces as well as members of the RCMP (who are also parents of students at St. Margaret’s). Also, a reminder to parents who have not yet done so, please sign up for student-lead tri-conferencing online. For exact directions please refer to the yellow hand out that your child should have brought home in their agenda. Please contact myself or Mr Boyer if you are having any difficulty. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today we had the opportunity to watch the live streaming of the Swearing-In Ceremony of our New Prime Minister in Ottawa. It was a very interesting ceremony and tied in well with our Social Studies Unit on Government and decision-making. I was able to capture a picture of the students watching the Inuit throat singing. Very cool!

There are a few important reminders for everyone:
There will be no dictées for this week or next week.
Nov 5 - Thursday morning will be picture retakes for any students who need or missed photos.
On Friday Nov 6 there will be cookies and hot chocolate for sale for $2 for those that wish to purchase. Proceeds go towards Creative Kids Saskatchewan.
There will be no school on Nov 9-11 due to PD days as well as Remembrance Day.
St. Margaret’s is collecting donations for the poppies the students will wear during our Remembrance Day Ceremony. If you are able to donate, please send it in your child’s agenda this week. All proceeds will go towards the Legion.
We had a great day today! We studied the poem In Flander’s Fields and watched a beautiful video – ask your child to share their thoughts on it and even show you it! Our classroom discussion about the poem was very moving ♥

Here are the dictée words for the week:
le lis rouge orangé
We also had a visit from the Moose Jaw Warriors who came and read with us this afternoon as part of the Read to Succeed program. We even managed to sneak in a game of dodgeball together with them! They were good sports! The next 2 days will be very busy as the grade 4’s will finish presenting their music research projects as well as their ELA podcast assignments. There is also a lot of excitement in the air as our school Mission Fair is Friday afternoon and we will be preparing our class activity for it which will be “Pumpkin mini-golf”! Also, for those that ordered hot lunch – tomorrow is Boston Pizza!
Today students took out new library books. They also started scripting out a podcast in ELA and learned about how white light is made of many different colours and wavelengths of light.
