Language Arts (Reading) – We finished our novel Bridge to Terabithia and to celebrate all our hard work on the novel, I will be showing the movie based on the novel tomorrow. Students have received results from comprehension activities from chapters 9 and 11, so you might want to check in with them.

Science – Students have been working hard on their multimedia posters for their vertebrate project, and tomorrow is the last day they will have in class to complete it. Next week, we will begin our first social studies unit and we will be working on social studies until the New Year. If students do not finish the project by the end of the day tomorrow, they can finish it at home over the weekend. Any students that have not finished it by Monday will have to stay in during recess next week until it’s completed.

Also, the school will be hosting a fundraiser for the Autism Society tomorrow. Students and staff are encouraged to bring a loonie or toonie and wear their clothes inside out or backwards.
