By now your scholar should have brought home a YELLOW FORM outlining our Calgary trip, and an ORANGE FORM outilining our upcoming health unit. Please be sure that you have read these, and contact me with any questions that you may have.
A note about homework.
As we enter the second half of grade five, students will be expected to complete more assignments that are not finished in class as homework. I understand that many students are busy with commitments outside of school, but time management is an important skill that is necessary for future success. If there is a reason that a student is unable to complete an assignment, they need to talk to me as soon as possible so that we can come up with a solution together.
As a class, we will write due dates in our agendas frequently, so it is important for students to bring their agendas to school every day. Please remind your scholar to check their agenda regularly for upcoming deadlines.
Students who choose not to hand in assignments on time are choosing to stay in during recess or miss other special activities until the work has been completed.
January is a busy month here at MMH and students need to be sure that they are coming to school each day prepared to do their best learning!
There are many opportunities for after school fun with Rocky Mountain Book Award Club, after school skating and of course grade five basketball.
Healthy fuel for our bodies helps us all focus better, especially when we are also getting plenty of sleep, fresh air and regular exercise.
!!Nut Free Classroom!!
Please be aware that we have students in our classroom with nut allergies. Please DO NOT send any nut products to school with your child.
There are students in our school who are very sensitive to any nut exposure. To keep them safe, we cannot have nut products in our school or on our playgrounds.
Being at school means close contact with friends...and germs. We ask that students remember to take extra care to stay healthy by eating well, getting plenty of sleep, washing their hands throughout the day, and maintaining their personal hygiene. It is also a good idea to check students for lice on a regular basis, as coats are hung close together in our coat rooms. Hats, mitts and scarves can be stored inside of student backpacks during the day too.
