Scientists in the school..successful! Thank-you to our awesome parents!

Hi Chickadee dot families!

snowflakeHappy Snowy Monday! We had 18 students at KHPS today during our second “snow day”!

We welcome 2 new students to our class: Grace and Owen! We are now a class of 30! 🙂 The boys and girls are doing a great job at welcoming our new friends!

Just a wee blog to let you know that the children had a blast and learned about all sorts of neat things during our “Scientists in Winter” workshop! This was such a successful and enjoyable morning! Thank-you to all of our wonderful volunteers who learned, ran and worked with the children! Hopefully, you all had a chance to look through the little brown bag that came home with samples of your child’s learning about winter birds, snowflake formation, meterologist information etc! A big thank-you to Ms. Bennett for organizing this for our Kindergarten students at KHPS and to Nancy Rowley for her wonderful Science learning opportunities!

Thank-you again for your support towards this learning activity and for your participation! Much appreciated! Not to mention it was so great to see you all again! Next activity, coffee and donuts 🙂

Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy!

Happy Snowy Monday!

Hi Chickadee dot Families!

snowflake hope all is well with you on this snowy Monday!

Just 2 reminders:

  1. Scientists in the School Workshop is on Friday morning! We are so excited for the children to experience this! We are accepting all parents who offered to volunteer, there are many centres and lots of “jobs” for you all! Thank-you! If you haven’t sent back the blue form and $5 yet, please send via Mr. Zippy over the next few days! Thank-you!
  2. Snowy Weather….I think the snow is going to be here for awhile now…the forecast is calling for snow all week! As you know, we play outside for over an hour each day. It might be a  good idea to send in extra mittens and socks each day. Feel free to keep them in your child’s backpack. It is no fun having cold feet and hands!
  3. Our  dramatic play area is now..a gingerbread house!! The boys and girls did a great job decorating it this morning, using paper, markers, crayons, scissors and glue!Image result for gingerbread house clipart

Donations needed please!!! We are looking for gently used aprons, spatulas, cookie sheets, oven mittens, old cookie cutters, rolling pins please! Any donation would be appreciated!

Thanks for reading!

Love, Ms. Jo-Anne 🙂
