Wednesday is the Trip to Camp Kintail

Please be reminded that Wednesday is our trip to Camp Kintail.  There are several students that still need to bring in all of the permission forms (both from Camp Kintail and the school permission form) in order to attend.

Please ensure that your child has a lunch, hat, sunblock and water.  Closed toed shoes are necessary for the days activities.  We will be leaving shortly after the morning bell and will be back by end of the day dismissal.  Volunteers will also need a lunch.

Here is an outline of our day:

Have Some PA Day Math Review!

We are lucky enough to be piloting an exciting Math online program.  Your child may have told you about it. The exciting part is that this program can be accessed at home.  Please read the following letter.  I will have students write usernames and passwords in their planners.  Please keep in mind that with any new program there will be glitches.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

EQAO Dates

Beginning next week on Wednesday May 24, we will begin the EQAO Grade 3 Assessment during the mornings.  The assessment will continue on the mornings of May 25, 26 and then continue on the following week May 30, 31 and June 1.  It is important that students be in attendance on those days and arrive on time.  It is very difficult to make up sections when a child is away.  

Please click on the following link which will take you to the Education Quality and Accountability Office  website.  This site has an abundance of information about the assessment as well as some examples for you to look at.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me (nancy.bicknell@ed.amdsb.ca).
