Greetings 5D Community,
Many thanks to all the parents who made it along to our parent / teacher / student conferences yesterday. I hope that you enjoyed our time together, and learned something valuable from our conversations.
Ms Mcgee & Ms Megan have given us the go-ahead to host our planned bake sale fundraiser on Thursday morning, February 6th. We are raising money for The Animal Rescue Cooperative, an Australian charity providing food, care and veterinary services to bushfire affected wildlife throughout Australia. If you are not into baking, don’t worry. A bakery item from a local retailer will work just fine, but please make sure that it is portioned appropriately. Please also keep in mind our school policy on single use plastic.
In addition to our bake sale on Thursday, 5D is also making friendship bracelets. This afternoon, I have sent all students home with one large roll of black wool, and one small roll of red wool. Students have been set the challenge of making as many bracelets as possible over the Tet break. The bracelets need to be one part red and two parts black, to represent fire and black earth. There is no minimum number of bracelets, but I do hope that all students will make time and contribute to the cause.
If you are travelling over the Tet break, safe travels, I hope you can make the most of this time with your family.
Save the Date:
Monday, February 3: First day back at school after Tet holiday break
Wednesday, February 5th: SCO movie night
Friday, February 28th: Blue Dragon Walk-a-thon and PYPx parent information morning.
