Family page, Food Drive and more

Dear Parents,

We can look back to a great week here in the PTK classroom. Applesauce making with Mrs. Morris was such a great way to get the week started and having so many cute cowgirls and cowboys here on Wednesday was a lot of fun too! Come have a look at all the family trees that have grown in the room.

There were 3 papers in the home folder yesterday:

  • The bible memory verse -Thank you for your continuous support to hide the Word in our little one’s hearts.
  • Field Trip Form to Wayland Sport Gymnastics – thanks for returning the permission slip
  • A hand out “When I’m with my family, we like to …” – This paper can be done in many different ways. You can write, draw and let your child colour, your child draws, siblings draw, one activity or many different ones, etc… my hope is that this can stir on some fun family conversations. Please send this page back and we will have time for each student to share.

November 25th Highroad Academy is starting a school wide Food Drive partnering with The Salvation Army going right up to Christmas break. We are having a goal to reach 20 000 points. For each food item the students bring in we get points. Our class is in the ‘Mac and Cheese group’ along with some other grades. That means for each Mac and Cheese box that is donated, we get 5 points. Other food items are welcome as well of course, but will give us 1 point per item. Thank you for your generosity!

For our family theme we started an ‘Antique Roadshow and tell‘ where the students get the opportunity to bring an item that is older than they are. Maybe you still have a toy, blanket, shoes, etc from when you were a child and any of these items would be great for this show and tell. The students are taking turns and will bring home a show and tell bag. Once you get this bag, all the instructions are in a duo tang inside. Please fill it out and send it back to school the following day. Thank you for your participation.

Have a great weekend

Mrs Ellis
