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 and Mrs Johnson, our trainee teacher, is teaching many lessons.  Mrs Godfrey supports Hurricane Class Thursday all day and Friday afternoon. 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

Dear Parents,

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.

Catalina Island Pen Pals 

We have been so fortunate to become pen pals with a school on Catalina Island, California.  A very good friend of mine is a teacher at Avalon School and asked if we would like to be pen pals for the remainder of the year.  It is a great way for our children to practice vital writing skills.  

The island is a one hour ferry or 15 minute helicopter ride from Newport Beach, California.  Santa Catalina, one of California’s Channel Islands, lies southwest of Los Angeles. It's known for its wildlife, dive sites and Mt. Orizaba, its highest peak. The resort town of Two Harbors lies to the north. To the south, in the city of Avalon, palm trees and cabanas line Descanso Beach. Avalon’s circular, art deco Catalina Casino is a cultural center with a movie theater, ballroom and museum.

Who knows, maybe we could have a field trip there?! ;) 

100% Spellers!  Way to go!  Friday, 1/3!
