Please see the following email shared earlier this evening:
I hope that everyone had a good spring break. A few updates from our class and community to share with you today. First, the weekly plans for April 20-23rd were posted this morning to Seesaw. However, I know that many of you are still not consistently using Seesaw, so I am including a PDF copy of the plans for families that would still prefer to receive work through email. The only thing NOT included are individual student's vocabulary lists. These were shared through Seesaw messages. If you are still needing a copy of your student's vocabulary list for the week, please let me know and I will provide you with a copy. There are also two videos to support this week's numeracy plans as well as today's Classroom Read Aloud selection, "Little Red-Cap".
April 20th- Seeing Parts and Whole
April 20th- Multiplication Monday (3x)
April 20th- Read Aloud
Second, the Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games are excited to announce their “Design the Mascot Contest”. The contest will run from April 15th until May 15th and is open to all children in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, ages 5 – 12. There are four animals that can be chosen from: a buffalo, beaver, lynx, or a raven are the animals that can be used as the mascot animal. Artists are asked to then design the costume and to name the mascot using their imagination, keeping the theme of the Arctic Winter Games in mind when submitting their entry for judging. The winning artist will receive a Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games prize pack and will be a guest of honor at the 2022 AWG Mascot Reveal Party. Full contest details and rules are available on the Wood Buffalo 2022 Arctic Winter Games Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/woodbuffalo2022/). Good luck!
Finally, the Wood Buffalo YMCA Community Programs are currently seeking: letters, cards, and colouring pictures, made by students and/or their families to be delivered to the region's vulnerable populations as part of "Operation Porch Light". They are trying to bring a little light to those struggling with isolation. Letters will be distributed to seniors, the homeless, and participants in day programs, isolation centres, and drop-in centres. They are hoping to get over 1000 letters so tell a friend! Write a letter each week! Challenge your friends and family. Please send uplifting messages and letters to:
