Lost and Found, Report Cards, Locker/Cubbie Clean Up, School Supplies : June 22, 2018
Spotlight on Learning
Gr. 6 students are developing their scientific observation skills through the Crime and Investigation unit. Students created their own escape rooms (with a non-violent crime) complete with props, evidence and a back story. Mr. Shoemaker and Ms. McKibbin tested their problem solving skills in Tia, Georgia, Erin and Darby’s escape room. Fortunately we were able to solve the mystery in under the 7 minute time limit!
Lost and Found
Last chance - please check out (or have your child check) the Lost and Found tables in the Learning Commons. All items will be donated to charity on June 25th.
Report cards will again be accessed electronically through Parent Portal. Access to report cards is only available until July 31st. If you’d like a copy to keep please print before the end of July. If you require a paper copy, we would be happy to accommodate your request. Please notify your child’s teacher by Friday, June 22 and a paper copy will be sent home on June 29th (June 26 for Kindergarten). *Please note report cards are not final until Friday, June 29 (June 26 for Kindergarten).
Locker/Cubbie Clean Up
