I find myself writing this message as we head into the final week of classes. Students are busily creating cards that will be delivered to our neighbours later this week, and our classes are working with our artist in residence Three Left Feet to prepare for our winter celebration. Students are so excited, and I am looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labour later this week.

School conferences were well attended at the beginning of December, which gave students, parents and teachers an opportunity to discuss progress, make adjustments and set goals before report cards are finalized at the end of January. During our conferences, we also held a math games exhibition in the gym focused on developing student fluency with basic math facts through engaging and fun ways using only dice and playing cards. All families walked away with a free set of dice, a pack of playing cards and the instructions. Our hope was to help support parents at home, and based on the feedback we have received, it is already paying dividends. If you were unable to come to conferences or didn’t have time to stop by the gym, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher; we have plenty of cards and dice left! In addition to these math games, you will see additional suggestions in this newsletter for activities you can do with your child during the break to keep reading and math skills fresh. Thank you so much to teachers for taking the extra time to provide these suggestions.

In December, our school continued the tradition of teaming up with the Alexandra Society for the annual holiday hamper collection. I would like to thank Mrs. Hoban for all her work in organizing and promoting this fundraiser.

As the calendar year comes to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season, and I look forward to continuing to work together in the new year!

Mr. Keuben
