On Tuesday we will be doing a special street art day with guest artist Rebecca O’Brian. We will be using spray paint which is permanent on clothes and shoes. Please remind your child to wear old shoes that day. We will have gloves, aprons and masks available for them. I will show them techniques to keep the paint off their shoes but I still advise them to wear old shoes. –From Mrs. Hobbs

Unit 7 in math is a short one. We should be completing Lesson 3 and the review this week.

There are really only 2 full weeks left until the sharing of the PYPx Exhibition. Students should have completed their initial background research and started to plan for action.

As you can see above, these last 6 weeks are going to fly by quickly. Please add these dates to your calendar.

We have finished our reading and writing units for the year. I will be sending home the assessments from these units as they are graded. For the rest of the year, the students will be using the skills they have learned all year to help them research their PYPx Exhibition topic.

In mathematics, we took the Unit 6 test and made corrections as needed. Students were also given the option to reassess on questions they had missed. I will be sending home these assessments with the attached rubrics next week.

Our next and final mathematics unit is on coordinating graphs and using them to find patterns and solve real world problems.

Our main focus for the next 5 weeks is on the SIS PYPx exhibition. Students have been put into their groups or are working individually. They have also been assigned a mentor. Groups are researching an issue that is connected to one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. After researching, they will come up with an action plan to address this issue. It is an exciting but busy time.
