Wow...all this hard work is now paying off. The time for the show is here! Gr. 6/7s will practice tomorrow morning just to polish our dancing moves, then the Tuesday group will perform for the matinee. We can also match up gr. 6 partners for their dance as some students are away sick. Remember to wear dark clothing gr. 7s. Your white lettering was showing today... you can always turn your hoodies inside out. Grade 6s looked awesome in their dressy clothing.
We will be having a gift exchange and the committee organizing this has decided any homemade gift (with effort) or a bought gift under $10 would be appropriate. We will draw names tomorrow.
There is also a committee organizing the class party so stay tuned for more information.
There are still outstanding report cards and skating notices. Also we will be having math this week so be sure to have your homework here.
Wow, another week gone by...one more until the break!
Monday is our dress rehearsal for the play so wear the clothing suggested for your grade group.
If time allows, we will share more poetry lyrics and have our debate.
No new math homework - same from last Tuesday.
All report cards should be returned and please bring your skating notice as soon as possible as we are skating just after the break. Please ask if parents can drive as we still need rides.
We have not yet discussed our party/gift exchange that Tweetie is organizing but hopefully the committee will have information for you on Monday.
Have a great weekend!
