Welcome back everyone! This is an important month of learning. This time of year, students are adjusting to the return from a long break and teachers are enjoying a long stretch of time with very few interruptions to their teaching. Families can help their child’s adjustment with the return to routines including regular times for meals and bedtimes in order to make the return in January more successful.
This month has two significant events. First, Kindergarten registration happens at the end of January from the 25th to the 29th. This is the beginning of the process that helps us determine how many classes of students we will have for next year, so we always look forward to seeing who will be joining us! Please remind any family and friends that you know have a child who turns five years old by the end of this calendar year to plan to do this. The second event is Literacy Week. In keeping with the long stretch of work time, we spend one week doing reflective and focused activities that highlight the learning we do all year in the area of literacy. Stay tuned for more information on that! I will be asking for some special ‘Guest Readers’ to come in and share a favourite story with our classes one day that week!
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the office!
