Update #14

There are officially 27 school days left in the 2016-2017 school year, and MAN do we have a lot to pack into them!  This is such a busy and exciting time for our almost-graduates, and I hope they take a moment to appreciate how far they have come this year. Friday June 2nd is a […]

Update Lucky #13

I have said before that this term goes quickly – but MAN, that was a fast month!  Can’t believe that we’re into May.  Someone said this morning that there are only 39 school days left which is also unbelievable. Tomorrow is “We the North” Day.  Students are encouraged to wear their Canadian sports teams jerseys […]

Update #12

I hate to jinx it, but I think Spring is officially making an entrance!  So happy to see the sun…it puts a ‘spring’ in everyone’s step. Back before Christmas, the kids went to presentations on career planning and education choices put on by Laurier.  At the end of the presentation there was a tear-off that […]

Update #11

Reports were sent home on Friday afternoon – if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can discuss things with you either on the phone or in person. I can also help set up meetings with rotary teachers if necessary. Now that reports are done, it’s time for […]

Update #10

Things have gotten downright poetic in Room 13 lately – it’s been really fun watching the students experiment with words and figurative language. We’ve played with magnetic poetry, blackout poetry, the poetry found in song lyrics and writing our own verses. We’ve also been reading a wide variety of poems – one of my favourite […]

Update #9

I always find that the second half of the school year goes so quickly – lots to look forward to and big changes ahead.  Hard to believe that our students are heading into their last term of elementary school very shortly! On that note, I wanted to make sure that everyone remembers that Grad photos […]

Update #8

Hard to believe it is almost the holiday break already – time has absolutely flown.  It’s been fun and busybusybusy in Room 13.   I had some empty bulletin boards at the back of the classroom, so 8-2 had their own board decorating contest.  We ended up with 6 groups competing, and I am blown […]

Update #7

Hard to believe that we’re at this point, but planning for high school is now well underway.  There was a huge turnout for the Doon parent information meeting, and students have already gone to smaller sessions with Cameron Heights and Eastwood.  Huron Heights came in to talk to the students on Monday to outline the […]

Update #6

I was looking at the calendar today and realized that December is right around the corner – how did that happen???  Things are flying by and life at Doon is good. The WRDSB is offering a Digital Citizen Summit for parents and interested community members on November 26th at Bluevale Collegiate in Waterloo.  If you […]

Update #5

It’s been a busy and productive week in Room 13 with lots of different activities going on.  In our reading in the days leading up to Remembrance Day, we have been using a “War and Peace” text set with picture books that focus on the World Wars.  We are learning to “read” pictures, then draw […]
