Marvelous Monday!

Email about fire alarm today:

Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s), 

This is to inform you that we experienced an unexpected fire alarm this morning in the building. SJA staff did an amazing job evacuating the students safely and in a timely fashion from the building. Students were outside for ten minutes waiting in line while we followed proper protocol to ensure every child was accounted for. At this time, we then made our way over to Meadowvale rinks to have shelter from the cold. Once the fire department gave the go ahead we returned back to the building. There is no need for alarm or concern the building and students are safe and secure.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs. Smith at bsmith@stjudesacademy.com or Mrs. Hocevar at hhocevar@stjudesacademy.com.

We began the day writing in our agendas and then working on our lesson fifteen spelling words.

Then we had French and Gym. During Gym we had our fire alarm.

After first recess and lunch we had Music.

Then we reviewed how to tell time using an analog clock and how we can write the time in different ways: 1:15 is also quarter past 1. 12:45 is also 45 minutes after 12 and quarter to 1. We then worked in partners to write the time using a digital clock.

Then we had an assembly about Jump Rope for Heart. Jump Rope for Heart is a fundraising and physical activity program based around skipping. It teaches school-aged children how to keep fit and healthy, all while having fun and raising vital funds for heart disease research and education. We are fundraising money for this incredible organization!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

St. Jude’s Academy is please to be holding a Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope for Heart event on Tuesday, February 20th, 2018. All money raised will support the Heart and Stroke Foundation in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research.

Jump Rope for Heart encourages kids to get active by skipping rope while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. They also learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and giving back to their community. This year marks Jump Rope for Heart’s 36th Anniversary and the Heart and Stroke Foundation is striving to get 1 million kids jumping in close to 4,000 schools across Canada. Let’s be part of it!

We need your help to reach out School fundraising goal of $1000.00.

Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at JumpRopeForHeart.ca and send out donations request emails to friends, family, and colleagues. Online fundraising is the quickest way to reach all of your contacts and online donors receive and automatic tax receipt.

Please visit JumpRopeForHeart.ca and start fundraising today!

Each student will be bringing home pledge envelopes if you prefer to collect donations in-person. Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned on the day of their school’s Jump Event Day.

Thank you in advance for your support,

St. Jude’s Academy Staff

After second recess and lunch we began our new novel study: Horrible Harry and the Holidaze! We immediately noticed the connections between this novel study and Song Lee in Room 2B. We realized that our first novel study took place when the students were in grade 2 and now they are in grade 3! Next, we made predictions based on the cover and the title of the story. We are getting so much better at making relevant predictions!! Then we read the first chapter. We found out that the students in Room 3B will be celebrating five different winter holidays and we will get to explore them along with Ms. Mackle’s class!!!

Next Emily shared her enthusiastic entry on her grandpa!!! Check it out!!

Then we continued sharing what he did over holidays.

Stay warm and safe! See you all tomorrow!
