Christmas Concert

Our day began with a class discussion of Chapters 23, 24, 25 and the Epilogue of Tuck Everlasting. Students have begun working on the final task for this novel study – the book summary and discovering the connections between the book and our inquiry unit. This work will be completed in class only as students will be evaluated on their responses. Devices will be needed to complete a research component to the novel study assignment.

We had a Christmas concert rehearsal in the morning and our performance in the afternoon. For this evening’s performance students are to be dropped off at the classroom at 6 pm. Parents who require shuttling to the dome will proceed to the gym for the shuttles. Students will be bused to the dome for the concert that begins at 7 pm. Students are to be picked up from the gymnasium after the concert.

Students who completed all their novel responses worked on their Haida art.

We had enough time for a few more students to present their Powtoons. Students who did not present will need to be ready to present tomorrow. Devices are needed for this. Students who have presented are asked to share their Powtoon with me.

Grade 6s had some math class today. They worked on adding fractions.

Ski/snowboard form and waivers are past due.

The Crawford Lake trip form is due back by Thursday, December 20th.

Please do NOT order hot lunches on January 18th & 23rd as we are out on trips these days.

Remember that tomorrow is casual day and there is a bake sale going on.
