Primary Fundraiser

On Monday February 12th SDA will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with a school dance and bake sale.  In order to raise funds for the primary division we are asking that each family with children in kindergarten-grade 3 please send in a donation for our bake table.  We are hoping to price items at $0.50 or $1.00 so things like cupcakes, cookies, and squares might be good choices. Please be sure to clearly label any containers that you would like returned. 


Valentine’s Day Celebrations

Since Valentine’s Day falls on Ash Wednesday this year we will be having our card exchange and class celebrations on Tuesday February 13th.  We will have a few fun games, crafts and treats for the students following our pancake breakfast to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.  As always students are also encouraged to come dressed in their pyjamas.

 

Grad Photos

On Thursday February 15th the students in Senior Kindergarten will be having their photos taken for the class composite.  Pre-order forms have been sent home.  If you did not receive one please let us know.  You will have the chance to order individual prints once the proofs are sent back.


Sight Words

For the students who are now able to identify all of the letters of the alphabet and most of their corresponding sounds we will be sending home some sight words to practice.  Sight words are words that students need to learn to recognize "by sight."  They are words that come up often in text (high frequency) and are sometimes not easy to sound out phonetically.  Some examples of common sight words are: the, said, little, look, away, can, etc.

On the menu to the left we have attached a link to Scholastic.com with some valuable tips and suggestions for making sight word practice fun.  As students become familiar with the words we have sent home new ones will be added.  We ask that you please review these words as part of your daily reading.

Newsletter

A link to the February school newsletter has been added to the menu to the left.  You may also find it in the backpack link on the school website.
