On Monday we celebrate Family Day! Last week, on Wed. Feb. 15th, we celebrated Flag Day in Canada. Our flag turned 52 years old this year!Click the video below to see the real story behind the Canadian Flag! Do you have a Canadian flag? Where have you seen Canadian flags being waved or flown?
On Wednesday March 1st we will have our Ash Wednesday service in the gym. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten season in the Catholic Church. As we enter the season of Lent, we will try to remember that doing things for others is living in the light of Jesus.
In language, students are continuing to explore the parts of a narrative, from snappy beginnings, powerful verbs and detailed descriptions to interesting characters and creative problem solving. Patterning is the current Math strand that the children are working on. They are learning about the attributes of a shape (size, colour, position, etc.) and how the changes determine the pattern. They are also exploring growing, repeating and shrinking number patterns.
Please remember to return the signed portion of the Report Card as soon as possible. Also, the French Immersion forms are due next week - if you have questions please do not hesitate to contact your child's teachers!
Monday: Family Day - hope you are able to do something fun with your families!

Language:Your report cards went home last Wednesday. Write a paragraph about how you feel you are doing at this point. Were you happy with your results? In what area have you most improved? In what area do you need to work harder? Do you feel that you are giving your best effort? Be sure to use examples in your paragraphs.
Look at this pattern below. Tell what the pattern rule is. Write the next 4 numbers in the pattern. Then name the kind of pattern - is it repeating, shrinking or growing?
