Gr. 5s have a math test within a week, although I can't be more specific just yet. We are working our way through a chapter summary, which will be excellent preparation for what is on the upcoming quiz.

Gr. 5:  p. 114  # 1-7 (T)

Gr. 6: p. 106 # 1-5 (T)


1) Peer Mediators. Our Grade 6 students have begun to shadow the Gr. 7 Peer Mediators as training in advance of eventually taking over from the Gr. 7s as Peer Mediators later this year. During recess and lunch any child can come to a Peer Mediator for conflict resolution. We are convinced that our Grade 6s can step into this important leadership role.

2) Bee Friendly Bee Guardians at Brooksbank.  Ric and Sharon will be back for their next Beefriendly lesson soon, but in the meantime, we would encourage you to follow the link to their freshly minted website, which is here. It is a gorgeous web site, chock full of information not only for students, but for all residents and homeowners on the North Shore.
