We are continuing with our Community Helpers unit and had Nurse Monika come and visit us today teaching us about her job at St. Pauls as a Cardio Nurse. We learnt how her stethoscope worked as well as how she helps people who are sick.
Tomorrow we will be having a Police Officer visit, Wednesday we will have a Firefighter, and Friday we will have 2 dads from our class visit! Wow what an exciting week!
Gift From God: We will be starting our Gift from God program tomorrow. In your child’s folder today I have sent home the family package along with the pictures. Please make sure you follow along with the lessons. I will be posting daily on the Blog which lesson we will be covering. Tomorrow we will only be doing Concept A.
Please DO NOT work ahead in the books. Each lesson is organized to have a classroom lesson followed by a family discussion.
Classroom Parents: I am still in need of parents to volunteer some time to work in the classroom. I do have a few projects that need to be completed in the classroom and can’t be sent home for parent work. Please see me right away if you can help out. Any amount of time is greatly appreciated.
Tomorrow we will be having Family Reading at 910am. If you can join us that would be fantastic!
This week we are looking at Chinese New Year and preparing to have a celebration of our own on Friday afternoon. We will be having a dragon parade and trying some Chinese food!
We also looked at the following chart to see what animal we are. Ask your child to see if they remember their animal!
As we continue to study communities we are in need of parent helpers to prep our community buildings. For this I will need a few parents to spend a few hours in our classroom in the next couple weeks…this counts towards PPH hours. Please sign up on your preferred date at our classroom doors after school or in the morning.
Cleaners: I am also looking for a few parents to earn PPH by helping out after schools from 3- 330pm to clean some of our toys, in order to keep our classroom clean and germ free!
If you are able to do so please send me an email asap.

We are also busy learning about communities and will be having some community workers visiting us in the next few weeks. I do have a few in class projects that I need a hand with if there are any parent volunteers that would like to sign up to do some classroom work.
