Education Fair

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

This year for the Education Fair (April 18),the students will be researching the traditions around Vaisakhi. When we asked the students, “What does Vaisakhi mean to you,” many of them were unable to respond and it became a focal point of our inquiry.

Students should take some time this weekend to research different FACTS around Vaisakhi. They can also find stories about Vaisakhi that they can share.

During this weekend, the students have a few tasks to complete:

1. Create a craft or a 3D model to present to the school. Please visit this website for suggestions and steps: http://www.kiddiesangat.com/
2. Find and bring a book about Vaisakhi to school from the library
3. Type or hand-write a one-page response tothe question “What does Vaisakhi mean to you?” (Must be done neatly and include illustrations, and it should be meaningful).

The assignment is due April 17.

Thank you!

Sticks Out for Humboldt

Dear Parents/Guardians:

You may have heard about the recent tragedy in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. The Broncos team was heading to Nipawin on Friday when its bus and a semi truck carrying a load of peat moss collided at an intersection north of Tisdale. There were 29 people on the bus — 15 died and 14 were injured. The driver of the truck survived the crash.

I spoke to the students in my class about the tragedy and they are all eager to help in any way that they can. To support the families of the victims, our school is collecting donations of $5 (or any amount that you are able to donate).

I would like to thank Nihal, Pavan, Manjeet, Gurshan and their families for their generous donations and show of social responsibility!!!

Anyone else that would like to donate has until Friday, April 13 (morning). We will be forwarding all donations to the foundation after that, as well as a small sympathy card on behalf of our class.

Thank you for your support,

Ms. H

Student Led Conferences

Dear Parents,

Tomorrow (March 8) is the student-led conferences from 1-6pm. If you have not signed up, please do so as soon as possible.

These are STUDENT-LED conferences, and as such, the students MUST attend with their parents. Please also note that the student will be the main speaker. They will be speaking about their own learning and their goals for the remainder of the year. I will be present at the conference for clarification purposes, but the students are in charge of speaking.

If your child is not present or unable to attend, please see me for an alternative appointment. These are NOT parent-teacher conferences, so student attendance is mandatory. It is important for students to take an active role in their own learning.

To make things progress more smoothly, please try to be here on time. Each slot is only 10 minutes and I will be enforcing this so that other students and parents do not have to wait too long for their turn.

If you are unable to make your designated appointment time, please write a note in your child’s planner and I will try to make an alternative appointment time for you and your child in the following week.

Thank you,

Ms. H
