** Reminder that we will be going skating on January 8th when we are back. The bus will cost $3.25 (as we aren’t sharing it with anyone.) We need parent helpers to tie skates, and if anyone has any extra pairs of skates, please let me know as that will allow some of our students who don’t have skates to try it out.

***The information about dental screening for grade 2’s is incorrect. There will only be dental screening for grade 1’s and 7’s. Thanks!

**I also told the kids that we will be going skating on January 8th. If you don’t have skates, start asking neighbours friends and cousins over the holidays so that the kids can come on Jan. 8th! I will be teaching them if they don’t know how. Also, we will be needing parent helpers to help tie skates that day, so mark your calendars for 2PM!

*Tomorrow is Sparkle Day.

**Thursday we are going to be watching the movie of Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. Students are allowed to bring a blanket and stuffy that day. There are a couple scarier scenes, but we have talked about this a lot in class already. Children are allowed to leave the room if they are finding a part scary, and they have read the book so they know what will happen which I have found helpful in other classes. I have shown this many times to grade 1 and 2 classes I have taught, and I have never had a problem, so I don’t foresee any problems this year either.
