Welcome to The Hurricane Class!
We have 27 wonderful students this year, with the support of fabulous, hard-working TAs throughout the week! Mrs. Edmunds supports Hurricane Class every morning. Miss Hill is with us Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday full day and Friday mornings (not Thursdays). Mrs Godfrey supports Hurricane Class Thursday all day and Friday afternoon. Mrs Williams supports The Hurricane Class Thursday afternoons. Mrs Johnson will eventually be supporting us Tuesday afternoons. We are so lucky to have SO much wonderful support!
I am sure there may be questions that will arise throughout the school year and I strongly believe in parent communication. There is a parent communication book in front of my classroom that you may leave any comments or concerns in. You may also speak to me first thing in the morning or after school, or email the office and they will forward your letter to me and I will respond as quickly as I can. I will be happy to speak with you, as communication is key to your child's success.
I have high expectations for all students, with an "above and beyond" attitude. I know you will be surprised by the growth you will notice in your child throughout the school year. To create an exceptional student, it takes the home and the school. Please be a part of your child's education as much as you can. Ask questions about their day and what they learned in class (if they say nothing, they are lying!) :) Be a part of their homework assignments. Being involved is the best you can do! Thank you for all of your support and I am so proud of your children!! I love their hugs, smiles and brilliant attitude towards their school work.

Reminder: No homework this week
Due to our big project - there is no other homework this week (no spellings or maths). I want to see some amazing creations!
(I posted this last Thursday and a letter was sent home last Friday)
Homework due Thursday, 7th March
We have been using the book, Rosie Revere, Engineer to guide our learning this week.
Where some people see rubbish, Rosie Revere sees inspiration. Alone in her room at night, shy Rosie constructs great inventions from odds and ends. Hot dog dispensers, helium pants, python-repelling cheese hats: Rosie's gizmos would astound - if she ever let anyone see them. She uses growth mindset and never gives up!
We have also studied Amelia Earhart who was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
For your child’s homework next week, they are being asked to explore aerospace engineering by building a cardboard airplane, space ship, or hot air balloon!
Be as creative as you may, as big or small, but just have fun with it and be creative as Rosie Revere was!
I wanted to give you plenty of time, so am sending this home before the weekend. This project is due, Thursday, March 7.
Looking forward to seeing what your child comes up with.
