Wednesday, April 10 has been designated as PINK DAY by the TDSB to support anti-bullying.  Pink Day was started in Nova Scotia in 2007 when two Grade 12 students organized their friends to wear pink in support of a younger student who was bulled for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. Show your support for against bullying and for tolerance on April 10.  LET'S GO PINK, LKS!
We have started our investigation of 2 dimensional shapes in math.  The children will be looking for examples of shapes in the classroom with their reading buddies this week.  They will also be creating pictures with 2 dimensional shapes.
Thank you so much for practising sight words with your child each week.  Learning high frequency words makes reading and writing so much easier.  Please take the words out of the pocket at the front of the book and keep them at home to practise.  Due to the four day week there was no sound review book this week.
We are looking forward to our two visitors during the month of April.  The scientist is visiting on Monday, April 15 to help the children explore magnets.  She will be running 4 centres with the help of parent volunteers.  On April 25, an artist will be spending the day with us and assisting the children with an art project.  A big thank you to Parent Council for funding these two great projects.  
Morning Class-The Class Book will be sent home daily with a child with an order form.  Please return the book the next day so I may send it home with the next child.  Please contact Wendy Mitchell if you have any questions.
Afternoon Class-We are collecting donations for the "OUTDOOR FUN" Basket.  Please check the blog for donations already received.  The more fun items we receive the higher the value of the box at the auction!  Please contact the grade parents for additional information.
Springfest always needs volunteers.  Please contact your grade parents if you have an hour to help out!!
