Opening circle tomorrow

Dearest parents,

Tomorrow in opening circle we will be presenting our Green Town song. If you have time and wish to see what the students have created, it is a nice way for us to celebrate our project.

Also a reminder that we will have a pizza party tomorrow. Your child will receive 2 slices of pizza. Keep this in mind when preparing their snack and drink.

Kind regards,

Ms. McIntosh

School Supplies

Starting this week I will be sending home school supplies. Please empty the bin and return it so we can ensure a smooth transition. If there is any concern about supplies being sent home, please speak to me and we’ll make special arrangements.
As of now, I plan to send unused materials on Wednesday and anything that will not be needed the last week on this Friday.

Ask yourselves…
What do you think we should be talking about in opening circle?

The presentation should be focused on the student profile.

Balcarra is on!

Thank you to the parents that have volunteered to drive. We will be going to Balcarra on Wednesday.
Please have your child wear gum boots and PE uniform on Wednesday. We will be staying at the park for lunch, so please pack a lunch that does not require heating.

Dearest parents,

Please do not be alarmed if your child is talking constitutions and bills of rights. We are writing a charter for Green Town and have been looking at different countries charters.

Green Town

The Grade 4s are very excited about exploring Green Town. This student inspired project will be based around a town that the students began exploring at DPA today.

We will continue this project tomorrow as we build on the idea of the city. Please encourage your child to use their imagination as we create this place.
