Over these three days, students will work on their VIP presentations, learn about stereotypes and relationships in Health, practice surface area and volume questions, practice summarizing and inferencing through a “Train to Win” article, and write their Unit 9 Measurement Math Test.  They will also start writing their ‘reports’ on a significant event in Canadian History.  All of the information regarding this assignment is up on Google Classroom.

Next week is EQAO.  Please ensure your child has adequate rest and nutrition.  If you’d like to send a special snack in for the students writing EQAO in Grade 6, that would be great.  There are 35 students total.

Also, ensure your child has a pencil, calculator, eraser, ruler – everything they should have on a regular basis!

Have a wonderful long weekend.  Enjoy the time with your families.
