Words Their Way and Word Practice

Good afternoon families,

Our Words Their Way cards/ words will be heading home today in your child’s planner pocket. They are yours to keep and continue practicing at home as your child will receive new cards/ words weekly to practice at school.

At the beginning of the week we will introduce the cards/ words and at the end of the week they will be taken home after practicing.

Attached is the notice that will be coming home today.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work as a team to support your children,

Ms. Toor

P.S. Tomorrow is a Pro-D-Day! Enjoy your long weekend and see all of you on Monday! 

Picture Day (Wednesday Oct. 20)

Good morning families,

We will also write the message onTuesday in our planners.

Thank you,

Ms. Toor

Class updates

Hello Families of Division 12,

It was so lovely to chat with all of you during the parent conversations last week. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me and for the great responses to all the questions about your children. Here are some important things to note:

Online Access 

In your child’s planner pocket a slip of paper was placed that has your child’s PEN number, this will allow you to access online forms. More information regarding this new online format was sent out by the school on Friday.

Library

Our library days will be every Monday, please have your child bring their books back to school on Monday morning to ensure they can sign out new books. You can always bring them before the weekend if your child is done with them earlier. Do not worry about this week as the permanent schedule just came out.

Extra Clothes

This is a friendly reminder to please leave a change of clothes and shoes at school for your child in case they need it. We will be going outside everyday and with the West Coast weather its a great idea to always have a spare change of clothes, socks, rain pants, rain jacket and rain boots at school.

Terry Fox Run 

Our school will be doing our Terry Fox run on Oct 1. Our class will be running at 9:30am – 10:15am. Parents are welcome to come cheer their child(ren) on from the outside perimeters of the school behind the fence near the gravel and grass field. Please note children in higher grades will be running at a different time.

Family Photos

Please have your child bring in a family photo to put on our family tree wall so that students can get to know each other better. It is also great to have for students who might be missing their families and would like to see a picture of them.

Thank you and hope everyone had a great weekend!

Ms. Toor

Parents as Partners Conversations

Hi Division 12 Families!

Thank you to those who have already chosen a time on Wednesday Sept. 22 or Thursday Sept. 23 for our Parents as Partners Conversations. If you have not signed up for a time there are times still available for you to select.

On both those days students will be dismissed at 2pm.

The meetings will be 10 minutes long and will give us time to talk about your child as well as time to get to know each other.

Please come prepared to answer the following questions about your child as we only have a quick 10 minutes together:

  • Interests/ hobbies
  • Strengths
  • Stretches (things you hope your child will develop/ learn)
  • Goals for the school year (academic goal)
  • One wish for your child (does not have to be academic)

Please have a listen to the story below. After listening to the story please come to the meeting with one wish you have for your child this year. The wish can be academic, social or anything you hope for them this school year.

After reading this story my wish for your children is that they enjoy coming to school each day. Your children have also selected a wish they have for this school year that I will share with you during our meeting.

Thank you and I look forward to meeting you over Teams,

Ms. Toor
