Taves Farm and Walkathon

Thank you to all parents who have emailed me informing me that they are able to help out with either the field trip to Taves Farm or the Walkathon. All positions have now been filled :)

If you have volunteered to drive, please ensure that the office has the following forms from you:

  • Driver’s Abstract
  • Criminal Record Check
  • Insurance Forms

I am also looking for some parent help either with taking work home or possibly coming into the classroom for an hour doing various tasks. If you are interested in either taking work home or coming in (if needed), please send me an email with your availability.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you to those who brought in images of things that start with the letter “T”. The kids really enjoyed looking at all of them and I will be putting them around the class :)


Letter of the Week & Apples

* We have begun studying the letter “T” today. If you would like to work with your child to find pictures of things that start with “t” and bring them into the classroom via the folder, that would be great!

* Please bring in 1 apple of any colour. We are starting to study apples and will be cooking with them at the end

Have a great week!

Apples, Labels

- This week we will be starting a unit on apples. If you have one, please send an apple of any colour (red, green or yellow) with your child to school tomorrow

– Please label your child’s snack with an “R” either on the container or the bag. A lot of containers were not labelled today which made it very difficult for the children to identify which foods were for snack time and which were for lunch

Thank you!

Ms. Petruzzelli
