I just wanted to say how wonderful the children sang and played today in the Remembrance Day assembly. It was beautiful.  I also wanted to thank Mrs. Froese, our music teacher, for sharing her enthusiasm and her love of music. Many people don't know that Mrs. Froese doesn't work on Fridays so when she is here on Fridays (like today) she is volunteering her time.  A big thank you to her!!

And just a reminder (as if anyone would forget) that there is no school on Monday.  I hope that you are able to have a wonderful family day! Enjoy your weekend.

It is our Remembrance Day assembly tomorrow.  Our class will be part of the choir singing for tomorrow and everyone needs to dress nicely in black pants or skirt, and a white or red shirt/blouse/sweater etc. Please, if possible, no t-shirts.  Parents are welcome to attend.  I think that we are going to the gym at about 10:35-10:40.

                  If there are any really good ones, I'll add them to my test.

Help needed!   I would like to teach the class to knit.  I am looking for any adults that are able to come in and work with a group.  For this to be successful, I'll need at least 6 adults to come in at least 3 times.  Once the students have the hang of it I only need 1 or 2 to come in and help after that.  Please email me if you are able to help us out.

                 review sheet)
                 yellow sheet - signed and returned in the WW book (Mon)

Upcoming Tests:
    French:  there will be a French test in the next 1 - 1 1/2 weeks on all of the
vocabulary learned up until now.  Students are encouraged to start reviewing
those words.  Many will be matching and multiple choice questions so they
will need to recognize the words.  Flashcards would be very helpful to study
from (look at the French and tell what the English is).

Thank you very much to all of the parents that were able to attend the parent
teacher meetings.  I appreciate having the chance to meet and talk with you.

Have a wonderful weekend.
