Homework:Practice French dialog (pronunciation, not spelling) Gr 5's will be having a unit math test soon. Also for the Grade 5s, today students begun the "Always Changing" program which is designed to teach children about the physical and emotional changes of puberty. The boys and girls will be separated for part of this. They will be bringing home booklets and are encouraged to share these with parents. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Lastly, if your child has good pictures from our WildED hike to the Headwaters of the Lynn Canyon, please send them in to me. We had a lot of fun that day, but the whole experience is free to the school if we prepare a slide show showing the day's activities. To that end, I'll take any pictures available, and we'll assemble the photo essay next week. Many thanks to Marco Maffiew, our visiting Swiss teacher here for 3 weeks, for his helpfulness and interesting insights to the world of Swiss elementary schools. We welcome him, and are happy he will be visiting with us for two more weeks.
