At the end of last week, a note was sent home regarding the movie we plan to watch on Friday. Students who plan to watch Schindler's List, need to return the signed note from a parent or guardian, indicating consent to see this movie. The alternative to watching Schindler's List is another movie, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. This is based on the novel by the same title; one of the novels that was studied in the literacy groups that we are now just finishing with. This movie is rated PG 13 and while it still explores the very upsetting topic of the Holocaust, it is considered less intense. If this is your movie of choice, please just indicate so on the note or by email.
Have a fabulous Day.

Good afternoon everyone. Tomorrow is another PD day so please do not pull yourself out of bed early unnecessarily. I hate to see a good sleep in wasted. Keep your eyes on the homework updates in the column to the right as well as the "Important Dates For February" list.
Below is a copy of the note that went home today. Please be sure to have a parent/guardian indicate whether or not you have permission to see the movie and return it ASAP.
Have a fabulous long weekend.

Due to this extremely cold weather, tomorrow's ski/snowboard trip to Mission Ridge has been postponed to March 21st. I guess the weather prediction is that it will not warm up enough to be outside until 4:00 pm. Therefore, tomorrow will proceed as a typical day 4.
Have a great evening and stay warm!!!!

Please keep an eye on the homework updates and important dates to remember. We have a few extra things going on in the next little while.
The rest of this week has lots to look out for. We are skating tomorrow afternoon so please come prepared for that. Also happening tomorrow - report cards!!!! I know you missed receiving your report card in November and they are finally here. You're welcome!!!
On Thursday we are having "Dress as Your Favourite Book Character Day". I'd rather not see any Captain Underpants if you don't mind, but please be creative.
All ski/snowboard trip forms and payments are due on Friday at the very latest. Please pay online and indicate our receipt number on the permission slip.
We are meeting for literacy groups tomorrow so please have your ELA homework finished and ready to go.
See you tomorrow.
