This Week in Grade 1D, January 17th

Market and Service Day

Thank you to all our Grade 4 friends who organized and carried out a fantastic Market and Service Day event on Tuesday morning. We had the opportunity to support many local charities by purchasing treats and participating in games. Thank you parents for your generous contributions, it is very much appreciated.

Update: Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences

See you all on Wednesday, January 22nd for Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences. Thank you to everyone who has already signed up via Veracross, if you have not already done so please do so over the weekend. Similar to our last set of conferences students are invited to attend. The purpose of the report is to discuss your child’s report which will be made available to you via Veracross on Tuesday. Please ensure that you have had a chance to look over it ahead of time in case you have any questions or wonderings. Specialists will be available throughout the day and it is optional to meet with them. If you wish to make an appointment with any of your child’s specialist teachers please book a time in advance.

On Thursday we will come together as the Elementary School community to celebrate the Vietnamese New Year. Students studying Vietnamese throughout the ES will host and special assembly and we ask that all students play their part by wearing a traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai. Each year we look forward to this wonderful celebration and we are sure the Year of the Rat will be extra special.
