4 cats

Hello Division 19,

Next Monday, June 8th we will be going to 4 Cats Art Studio.  If you haven’t already paid, please send the money in this week.  I also forgot to mention on the form that I would love for parent volunteers to join us. If you are able to come on this field trip, please write a note to me in your child’s agenda, or let me know in person either before or after school this week.

Thank you and see you all tomorrow!

Food day for Ander’sun’ Day

Hello Division 19,

Today due to our party we did not fill in our agendas.  Your child is bringing home a YELLOW half sheet of paper for a food order for Ander’sun’ Day. If you are interested in purchasing food for your child on Ander’sun’ Day, please return the yellow order form with the appropriate money by WEDNESDAY May 27.  Orders will not be accepted after that day.

Thank you and have a great weekend!

French party on Friday

Hello Division 19,

This upcoming Friday, we will be having a class party to celebrate speaking French in the classroom. The theme for the class party is a combo of 4 things: stuffed animals/pajamas/picnic and a movie.  If your child would like to bring a snack to share for our picnic, that would be great.  Please remember that anything that is brought to our class must be nut free.

Thank you,

Mme Rode


Hello Division 19,

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is a professional day.  Please have a wonderful long weekend.  Also, please remember that Tuesday is early dismissal at 2pm.  Please arrange for someone to pick up your child that day at 2.

Thank you and see you Tuesday!

We are finishing up our unit focusing on multiplication and division. The grade 3 learning outcome focuses on multiplication up to 5×5, however, it will continue to help your child, if he/she memorizes these facts and more in the table to help with this unit next year in Grade 4 which is facts up to 9×9.

Our next unit will be focusing on fractions.

We are continuing with our voyage across Canada. We are moving from East to West. Right now, we are in the maritime provinces, learning about geography and interesting facts about each province.
