Would you like to try the demonstration we did in class today? You will need: a large bowl and a small bowl, water, dish soap and black pepper.
Give it a try!
It is the start of a fresh new school year! I hope you will check this site regularly for updates on important class events, information about field trips, and, beginning in March, access to background music for our music lessons. You can see our weekly spelling list if you click on SPELLING in the menu, and a quick link to math sites like XtraMath and Sumdog if you click on MATH LINKS in the menu. There is a link to Google Classroom in the menu as well.
Our grade four class has 28 students this year. A list of their names can be found here.
Upcoming events this month: Meet the Teacher and Open House Barbecue (Sept. 20), Professional Development Day (Sept. 22), Terry Fox Run (Sept. 28), Orange Shirt Day (Sept. 29). Check the school newsletter that is sent by Mr. Friesen for more details on these events.
GYM: Our days for gym will be Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with Mr. Eberding. There will also be some Mondays and Tuesdays that I will be taking the students outside for extra gym times too, so students should be prepared for gym each day of the week.
LIBRARY: To be determined.
For Earth Day, we learned how to make a paper liner for use at home. These are the perfect size for the brown and white compost bucket that was given to residents by the city of Abbotsford.

Wondering why we haven’t been posting here lately? We have been using Google Classroom! You can get to our Google Classroom using your Learn34 account and password. You can play some math games at home or catch up on assignments that you have missed.
In the next three months, music to go along with our recorder lessons will be posted here, as well as extra copies of the sheet music. Come back to see in April!
We will be going ice skating in January, 2017! There are three Fridays to skate – Jan. 6th, 13th and 20th. Each class has a scheduled time. Division 3 will be skating in the afternoons at MSA Arena, across Emerson Street from Centennial Pool. We leave the school at 12 noon, and should be putting on our skates at 12:15 Can you come to help with tying skates? It would be very appreciated! Parents can also join students on the ice skating; bring your own skates, or rent from MSA.
We require students to wear helmets, and mittens or gloves are strongly suggested. It is best to wear long socks that are not too thin, especially for those who are renting skates.
Students must complete a field trip-form (skating-2017 attached). As this is a higher risk activity, there are many places which require a parent initial; it also must be signed by a witness.
Parents should go to schoolcashonline.com to pay. Please complete the second form to indicate size of skates if you are renting.
Today we had a guest speaker who taught us about water usage and conservation in Abbotsford. She suggested that we participate in a survey – and it could win a pizza party!
