Class Cleanup and Fun Day

Tomorrow, we will be cleaning out desks and the classroom in general. Most of the material in their desks will be going home tomorrow, so students need to remember to have there kitbags and maybe some extra bags if they have a lot of stuff in their desks.

On Friday, the grade 6 students will participate in their fun day. They can bring a snack for the walk down to Murphy’s Community Center, but they will not need a lunch as it will be provided. They can also bring in their favorite electronic device for our tech time in the afternoon. Any students that have not yet passed in their permission slip for the trip to the bowling alley must bring it in tomorrow. Grade 5 students will have regular classes in the morning, but then they can join the grade 6 students for the tech time portion of the day in the afternoon.

Math Assessment

Grade 6 Math –  just a reminder concerning the Grade 6 Elementary Mathematics Assessment which will commence this Wednesday, June 6th. The assessment will be carried out over two days with the other day being Thursday, June 7th. We have been reviewing material in preparation for the assessment in class for the past few weeks.

Students should be encouraged at home to put forth their best effort as this assessment attempts to provide a snapshot of student proficiency in mathematics at the end of grade 6. I am quite confident that the class is well-prepared. At home, please emphasize with your child the importance of working carefully and taking time to do their best work.

Field Trip – We will be taking our field trip to the Tracadie Watershed this coming Thursday. It is supposed to be a beautiful day, so we are looking forward to that. Please send in $2 to offset the cost of the bus if you haven’t already done so.

Health – The grade 6 human sexuality health unit will be carried out on June 11th, 12th, and 13th. We wanted to wait until the grade 6 math assessment was completed, and it will be next week on June 6th and June 7th.

Speaking of the math assessment, we are only a week away now, and review sheets went home with students that did not complete them in class. Please check with your child.
