Dress Loud Day

Friday is a pack activity day. Students are encouraged to bring in a toonie to support students with hearing loss. Wear your most wild, wacky and colourful clothing. All money raised will be donated to VOICE. If you want to know more about VOICE follow this link .

Kiwanis Performance!

Congratulations to the Grade 4’s for their fabulous performance of ‘Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes’ at the Kiwanis Festival today. They placed first and earned ‘first class honours with distinction.’ A big thank-you to Mme Neeb for her hard work teaching music.  She did a wonderful job with the class preparing the class for the performance today!

Trip Tomorrow

Tomorrow we are heading to Blyth to watch the play “New Friends, old Friends.” Please make sure you come to school on time as we will be leaving promptly after announcements. The only thing students need to bring is their lunch and water bottle. Pack a couple extra snacks as we won’t have access to the snack passes tomorrow.

Firefighter Visit

On Friday we had a visit from Rylee’s dad Jay who spoke to us about fire safety and the importance of creating an escape plan and planning a family meeting place.  We also learned there should be a carbon monoxide detector on every level of the house where someone sleeps.  We talked about the importance of getting out of the house quickly and letting the firefighters go in to save other important things to us like our pets, photos, and technology.

Please take 5 minutes this week to test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Also talk about finding 2 ways out of each room and create (or review if you already have one) your family meeting place in case of an emergency.

Can you tell who this is?



Carnaval d’hiver

We will be having a ‘Carnaval d’hiver’ at Bedford for our pack day on January 25th.  Please make sure you send your child’s winter clothing as they will be outside on the yard.  If you are available to help out with Hot Chocolate that afternoon please send an e-mail or send along a note in the planner.









A reminder that our class is going skating on Friday January 11th.  If you do not have skates we have some available at the school to borrow.  Please send a note in the planner Tuesday or Wednesday if you would like to borrow skates.  We ask that students wear a CSA certified helmet.  Your child will also need gloves or mitts.  Please let me know if you have questions.

Ma semaine en français 16

Happy holidays !

Our last week was very art oriented. We had the chance to go to the Art Gallery and do some arts. We did more art in the classroom.

we also attended a  volleyball game : teachers against students.

We did  lost of French games in the classroom and our PACK was about board games.

In the New Year Mme (Machado) Hillier will take over. It has been a pleasure for me to teach your children. It’s hard to leave them in the middle of a school year but I know they are in good hands. I’m thrilled to know that I will also have the chance to see them again in grade 7 and 8.

Happy holidays and see you in town or even at Bedford where you might still see me at the end of the day!



Changes in the New Year

Dear French Immersion Families:

As we get closer to the break, I wanted to inform you of some changes in the New Year.

I have been offered a 7/8 French position at Central which I accepted. In consequence, your child will have Mme Machado as their new French teacher for the remainder of the year.

It has been a pleasure for me to get to know and teach your child. May we meet again in grade 7 and 8.

Have a resting break.

Art Gallery Field Trip

Dear Grade 4 Families:


Our field trip to the Art Gallery on Monday December 17th is fast approaching.

In order to fully enjoy our trip, I was thinking that we could leave at 8:50 (teachers bell).

A note was sent home yesterday. Please return it and let me know if your child can make it for 8:50 in the lobby. If your child is on the bus, we will leave as soon as they arrive. If it’s too early for you, there is always the possibility for you to join us at the Art Gallery around 9:15.
