This week was a short week in Kindergarten. We had our Superhero Day on Monday, which was a huge success. We hope the students enjoyed being superheroes for the day as much as we did! We will continue to discuss superheroes in our classroom over the next few weeks, focusing on heroes in our everyday lives.
Looking forward to next week we have a "Rock your Mocs" assembly on Monday November 16th at 12:30 PM in the gym. Students are encouraged to wear their moccasins or slippers to school that day in recognition of the First Nations People.
We have our third skating day on Thursday November 19th at Nicholas Sheran Ice Arena. Thank you again for all the parent volunteers who join us at the arena. We couldn't do skating days without your help!
Last week a flyer was sent home about a school wide service project that encourages families of MMH to consider donating to those less fortunate in our city. We will be collecting both unwrapped christmas gifts and gift cards for families in need until Friday, December 11th. Gifts will be donated to the Angel Tree project, local shelters for women and children and to new immigrants to our city, depending on the need and response. Donations will also be accepted at our Christmas concerts at College Drive Community church on the evenings of December 8th and December 10th.
Just a reminder we will continue to go outdoors for recess. As the weather is getting colder make sure to send your child to school with the appropriate clothing.
I hope everyone enjoyed the extra days off this week. Looking forward to seeing everyone again on Monday. From now on we will be having typical four day school weeks.
