Wow, it is hard to believe that we are already in our last week of September!  Time is flying by already!

The annual Gretna Green Terry Fox Fundraiser will be taking place this week.  All students are encouraged to bring some spare change throughout the week.  For every loonie students raise they will recieve a ballot for the possibility of being selected as our Principal For The Day!  Also don't forget to join us in our walking school bus on Friday, September 30th.  All students and parents are asked to meet at the Northumberland Mall in Douglastown at 7:30 am and we will walk to the school in memory of Terry Fox.

In Math, we will be finishing up our unit on Data Analysis. 

In Literacy we continue to improve our Daily 5 sessions making sure we are working productively and quietly.  We will begin the Ideas Trait during our Writers Workshop. 

Our Science unit on Magnets will be coming to and end this week as well.

The cross country meet on Wednesday will be at NSEE and begin at 4pm.

Drama students have received their parts and schedule so make sure that you check that daily to see if you should be staying after school.

Picture Day is Friday!!  Get your best looking smile ready!

Just a reminder that there will be no breakfast program nor will there be cafeteria services this week.  We hope to have both programs up and running by the second week of school.
