Well, it’s been forever since I wrote on our class blog, but I still have a few families that have not accessed our Remind App (@d2e2h) for reminders.

Tomorrow afternoon, we have our silk screening activity. Please remember a light coloured tshirt or other item you would like to print on.

Friday, we will have a class party, you are welcome to bring and share snacks and I will provide pizza for lunch. Then, Happy Holidays! See you January 9th! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here we go!

Hello Parents and Families,

Sorry it has taken me so long to get this blog up and running, it has been a busy few months. Last week, you may have received a crazy, mixed up newsletter (my apologies). It had our remind app class code on it: you can enter this number: 289-270-0987, or text to @d2e2h, or email ย ; any of these links will link you to our class to have a connection with upcoming events and due dates for assignments.

Also, if your child has not yet mentioned it, we are participating in our school’s Remembrance Day assembly in a musical skit titled, “A Soldier’s Memoire”, more information will be available about that soon.

Finally, report cards are being sent home on November 11th, and parent/teacher conference sign up information will be coming home soon.
That’s all for now, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns at

April “Snow” Showers bring…..May flowers?

It’s hard to believe that April is 1/2 done! We have had such a busy month of March and with all the snow, it doesn’t seem like it is already spring!

This is the final stretch folks! Our math unit for the next two weeks is Algebra, and Social Justice final scripts are due on Thursday!
Reminder that Friday is a PA Day and Grad Photos are April 20th!

March Madness!

Time is flying by! There is so much that has been happening between snow days, report cardsย ย and upcoming trips, this poor blog has been forgotten.
I have just posted a link to Khan Academy to help with fractions. It is a great visual to help you out if you need it.

A reminder that Wednesday is our trip to Famous People Players and the Spaghetti Factory! The bus leaves at 8am!

Monologues and Seal Hunt reports are due FRIDAY!

5 days until March Break!

November Happenings!

It’s hard to believe that we have been in school for 10+ weeks already! Time flies when you are having fun, I suppose.

In Language, we are still working on our “Unwind” novel study. We have met the three main characters: Connor, Risa, and Lev. Next week, we will be writing “friendly” letters to our favourite authors. Find out what Unwind character you are by clicking on the following quiz:

In Mathematics, we are working on adding and subtracting fractions. We can add and subtract fractions with the same denominators and making common denominators.

Tomorrow is our PJ Day and Dance. Please remember to bring in your jammies and donation for the dance!

French verb quiz: Etre, Avior, Aller, and Faire! study well!!
