Tuesday 31st October

Hello hello!

I hope you had a fabulous long weekend and enjoyed some family time together.

We only have a 3 day week this week, but it is a busy one.

Today we changed our library books. If your child has forgotten theirs, it isn’t a problem, I can let  them go tomorrow to change 🙂

Thursday is Flag day and Grade 2 are required to wear red.

A red t-shirt or sweater is fine and regular school shorts is fine.

Music lessons will finish on November 2nd and swimming lessons commence next week, on Sunday 5th. A letter is being sent home in the homework pack with further information.

Homework is due on Sunday 5th  – if its too much for you to get through in the short week just let me know and we can make an arrangement.

Have a great Tuesday!

Halloween’s coming!

Hi everyone, the excitement is building amongst the students! We have written Halloween stories which will be published as soon as the students have finished their editing. The students are really enjoying this which is awesome.

On Thursday the students are invited to dress up in Halloween costumes if they wish, if you do not want your child to participate he/she can just wear regular uniform.

Farris was being my assistant and took photos to put onto Class Dojo today……so he is due the credit for the creativity!

If you have any questions just ask….:)
