Hello Parents and Students,
What another great day! Parents, I am incredibly impressed with the respect and behaviour the class has demonstrated so far this year… I think they all deserve an extra scoop of ice cream at the Ice Cream Social happening this Thursday 😉
Today we began the About Me Project, our first major assignment of the year (please see the “Projects” link for more information). To start, I showed the students a few example presentations, and started to teach them how to use Microsoft PowerPoint. The students know they can be thinking ahead tonight with regards to this assignment. Also, parents, a USB thumb/storage drive would be useful this year to backup student work saved on the school server. USB thumb drives are usually quite cheap ($5-$10) and can be purchased at London Drugs, Staples, Best Buy etc. While a USB drive is not necessary, it can be very useful and can last a student for many school years to come.
The Jiu Jitsu program will begin next week during class time. Please complete the permission form that is coming home with students this evening. I would love to have that form signed and returned by Thursday. Thanks!
Have a wonderful evening!
