Last week’s Portfolio Meetings were a wonderful celebration of learning! Thank you for all the experiences you are providing your children. If you have not yet sent back the SEL Page given to parents at Portfolio meeting, please do so now. Also, if you ordered Purdy’s Chocolate through the fundraiser, your orders have arrived. Please contact the school office.
Now that the meetings are over it has been tremendous fun to have the room full of creative kid energy again! We have been using Story Mats to develop our understanding of Setting, Character, and Plot. We are also getting back to working with wool as well.
Next week Beaconsfield will be enjoying many seasonal activities and ‘event days,’ our class will be decorated, and we will be having a Pajama Party on Tuesday 14th and Friday 17th too!. Please send along some individually wrapped treats/drinks to share. Home Made is OK if portions are individually wrapped. There are 14 students in the Mon/Tues group and 11 in the Thur/Fri group. We will not be doing a “Secret Santa exchange this year, but instead, students are invited to contribute to a “Coin Drive” which is being done to collect a financial gift for an indigenous community near Merritt BC. If you are able, please send you child with a few coins that they might experience the opportunity to contribute to helping children in another part of the province.
The whole school is also celebrating the season in some fun ways: There is a door decorating contest, Monday Dec 13 is Seasonal Hat Day, Tuesday is the Primary Pajama party day, Thursday is Candy Cane day (wear red and white if possible) and Friday is a school wide Pajama Day and Camp Read. Come in PJs with a stuffy and a good book!
