Elementary Update

The elementary class has had a wonderful week with major explorations in botany, geometry, and music.

The students have been studying the function of plant stems and observing the water intake of celery stalk specimens, making daily observations and measurements. In geometry, they have been exploring lines and learning terms such as “ray”, “segment”, and “endpoints”. The highlight of the week was our community outing to the Boris Brott Education Concert, where we were introduced to the instruments of the orchestra, and heard popular pieces such as the themes from E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and Jurassic Park. Our very musical group has also begun their preparations for our Winter Concert, filling our classroom with joyful singing in both French and English!

Upcoming Dates to Remember:
• Friday, December 2 – PD Day & Parent Teacher Interviews
• Wednesday, December 21 – Holiday concert and social (4:30-7:00pm)
• Friday, December 23 – Last day of school (winter holidays begin)
• Monday, January 9 – First day of winter term

Enjoy your weekend,

Ms. Achong & Mme. Prat-Kalonji
