Math Grade 6 – We have finished reviewing the number sense strand and we are now working on the shape and space section of the curriculum. You may see review sheets coming home from time to time so I’d ask you to make sure the students are completing these as they are very important in preparation for the math assessment in two weeks time.
Math Grade 5 – We are still working on the number sense strand specifically on decimals. You may see review sheets coming home from time to time so I’d ask you to make sure the students are completing these.
Language Arts – Tomorrow is the last day for the grade 6 language arts assessment. They will complete comprehension questions for their final story in the morning and be completing the good copy of their writing sample in the afternoon. Grade 5 will complete their second ACRAR comprehension assessment in the morning and finish the good copy of their writing sample in the afternoon.
Health – Students had their third class with Constable Markam Long of the Charlottetown Police Services on the “Healthy Me” program yesterday. I’d encourage parents to ask their child about these sessions as it is a great way to initiate some dialogue on peer pressure, making good choices and drug and alcohol use. They will have their fourth and final class with Cst. Long next Tuesday.
For grade 6 students, we will begin the human sexuality component of the health program next week. Notices went home about this yesterday, and I need those returned and signed by Friday if students wish to participate in the program. Ms. Hufnagel will be instructing the girls, and I will be working with the boys.
