Our Core Competency reflections are coming along well for reports! I hope you are all excited (not worried or stressed) regarding new Socials activity. Feel free to chat with me if you have suggestions for tweaking it, would like accommodations so that it STAYS FUN FOR YOU :)

I was thrilled to finally get back to our Refugee novel as well today! Hopefully we can spend more time with this over the coming weeks.

Finally, you all know your roles for the Christmas concert. Most of you will be in the band section at the beginning. The attire is dark pants and white shirts.

Some of you have roles such as wisemen, shepherds, main characters, solo singers and dancers. Such characters will be dressed in "Biblical" type clothing. Us teachers will try to source these costumes. Any items from home that could be contributed would also be appreciated!

I hope you all didn't miss me too much the last two days! Thank you all for your concern. I am not quite 100% better just yet but I am getting there. I am sure my stack of marking this weekend will bring me back to reality fast!

Well done to the girls volleyball team- I cannot believe you beat the teachers today! It was SUCH an exciting game!!

Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend.

Happy All Souls Day!

We missed our friend Luciana on her birthday today, but rumour has it she received the best birthday present ever!!!!

Good luck to the v-ball girls today in our grade 7 class. I will also be at a game with the grade 6 team (hence the early blog update).


God bless!

You can tell times are busy when I haven't been able to blog in a while!

Well the F.S.A.'s are finally done! You and your parents can expect to receive the results along with your report cards. That being said, the FSA results do not have any influence on the teacher assessments that are talked about in report cards- they have no impact on grades.

Our Read Aloud novel, Refugee, has many of us hanging on to each word and longing to continue hearing about the stories of Isabel, Josef and Mahmoud!

We have also started our unit on Ancient Rome in Socials- watch this space for some research activities that are soon to come :)

Tomorrow we will finally get our all 7's time that we have not enjoyed since before F.S.A.'s. We will discuss SPIRIT DAY that is coming up THIS SATURDAY! Notices will go home with all information needed.
Check out the Promo video here for Spirit Day:

I also recommend getting into some music by W.A.L. (We Are Love), formerly known as Jacob and Matthew Band to get you in the mood. They will be performing on the day- here is a link to my favourite song by them:
