there Grade 5 families:
are a few reminders for this week leading up to March Break:
1. It’s PANDAMonium Week! PANDAmonium Week Activites.docx All week
we will be celebrating something wild and fun!
.Tuesday is Crazy and Bright Day: Get out your brightest colours, craziest
patterns or whatever you want to stand out!
Our class will be swimming at
the Fredericton Indoor Pool from 9:00 am - 9:50 am on the following dates: Mar.
11th, 18th, 25th, Apr. 1st, 8th
Please note our first swimming date
is the Monday when we return from March break. I will try to send out a
reminder over the break as I know it will be difficult to remember. We still
need 2-3 parent volunteers, including at least one male, to accompany us to the
pool. We will be leaving the school at 8:30 am following the announcements
and walking to the FIP. If you are available to help supervise on any of the
days mentioned above, please let me know.
The Book Fair is this week!
Dates and are times are posted on the school website and on Fresh Grade
and here is your reminder here as well:
