It is difficult to believe that we are starting the last full week of October.  Time is flying by.  We have been discussing Responsibility in anticipation of the Sharing Assembly on Friday.  In Kindergarten, responsibility includes cleaning up toys and your table when you are finished, taking out your mailbags and library books and following classroom rules and routines.  As mentioned in the newsletter sent home on Friday, parent teacher interviews will be held in November.  The on-line booking will open for parents on November 5.  More details will follow from the Grade Parents as the date comes closer.  
The afternoon class enjoyed attending the Terry Fox Assembly on Friday to celebrate our fundraising.  The Mystery Pail dumping was a great success with marshmallows, jello, chicken soup and eggs being dumped on teachers' heads.  It was all for a great cause and thank you for all your assistance raising money for the Terry Fox Walk.
We are continuing to discuss patterning, numbers, sounds and sight words during our daily messages and through our classroom activities.  Thank you very much for reviewing classroom activities at home.
The September Scholastic order has been sent home with the children and the October order has been placed.  I have a Power Ranger Book-Samurai Strike from the September order which did not have a name on the order form.  Please see me if you are missing this book.  Thanks in advance.
Retake Picture Day is Wednesday, October 24.  The photographer is now staying until 1:00 pm in the afternoon.  Please return the forms sent home on Friday, if you wish sibling pictures or a retake for your child.
