Weekly Update

December 9, 2018 

Dear PHS Families, 
I want to start by extending a huge thank you to our parents for your support in your child’s education.  We appreciate all you do whether it is working with you child on his/her homework, giving of your time by volunteering, involvement in our council and parent society, providing suppers on conference nights etc.  Your involvement is paramount to your child’s success and in creating a strong and positive home/school partnership.  Our staff appreciates your support each day!  
As parent/teacher conferences have now taken place, it is our hope that you have a clear picture of your child’s learning.  This is the formal time to meet with your teachers, however, your child’s teacher is available to answer any questions you may have through phone, email or appointment.  Please feel free to reach out.   
Our teachers were busy on the Friday Professional Development Day.  Our focus was on mathematical problem solving where we examined student work from tasks designed in October. Examination of student work involves making instructional adjustments to our next planning in order to meet the desired achievement gains in students.  We had a mathematician, Rosalind Carson, work with teachers for a few hours where she modelled tasks that promoted critical thinking and mathematical dialogue.  In particular, she spent time on tasks that develop spatial reasoning which is a critical skill needed in building other mathematical concepts.  We ended the day with our learning leaders taking us through more of our book study by Dylan Wiliams: Embedding Formative Assessment and then planning out our next math tasks incorporating what we learned by both our presenter and our assessment resource.   
In the next few weeks we will continue to prepare for our Winter Concert and we look forward to seeing you on December 19.  Please make sure you have marked the times on your calendar:  
Daytime performances:  
Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2: 12:50pm-1:45pm 
Grade 3, Grade 4: 1:55pm-2:55pm 
Evening Performances:  
Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2: 5:30pm-6:30pm   
Grade 3, Grade 4: 7:00pm-8:00pm  
We have also planned out some dates for school gatherings where we will sing together and meet as a school body.  If you have a PHS clothing, please wear it (or blue) to build a sense of community.   
December 17, 20 – pm carol singing (wear your PHS T Shirt) 
December 21 – am carol singing (Pajama Day) 
Also, don’t forget to visit your child’s class blog for learning updates:
