We will be sending the reading parts home again this weekend. please help your child by encouraging to stand streight, look at you and say it loud, slow and clear. Many of them can do it without their papers already.
Also, a gentle reminder to have the covers in school by monday (we need them for photos)
…and here is alist to enter the amount of guests your child will be having on the day itself. Please include siblings that go to our school in your overall amount (do not include your grade 1 child/ren).
The Grade Six Hebrew class is excited to share that they will be holding a shuk (market) next week. They are raising money for their future graduation trip. The Grade Six have just completed a course of study about Jerusalem and its very famous market area, Shuk Machane Yehuda. Many items will be sold, such as video games, toys, books, and snacks. Like in every shuk in Israel, “bargaining” is always encouraged and welcomed. Items sold will cost anywhere from 5 cents to a maximum of 5 dollars. They would love to see your child bargaining at our shuk and see how 5 dollars can take them a long way. The Grade 1 class will be going on January 27th at 10:05.
To ensure the program runs smoothly and that money doesn’t get lost in time for the big day, you are welcome to send in money in a labelled baggie by Monday January 27th. We will hold onto their money until it is their turn to visit the shuk.
Thank you in advance from the Grade Six Hebrew class!
Each week we visit the library on Friday mornings. Due to our participation in the Global Read Aloud, we have not had the opportunity to return or borrow new books during October. Our next visit will be on November 8th when we will return to our routine of taking out books once every two weeks. Sorry for the confusion. As well, our students have access to the library once a week during a recess (see below). Both classes were reminded they can use this time to exchange their material or enjoy the library space.
Now that the chagim are finished, we will resume our weekly reading homework. Each student now has a new book in their red folder for the week of October 28-31st. Tomorrow is a Dress Down Day. Donations will be given to the Patient Urgent Needs Fund at the Ottawa Hospital in memory of Dr. Eliana Saidenberg. Please remember to bring a donation this Friday for Dress Down Day.
We are all invited to a community farewell party for our amazing Shinshinim, Inbar and Liam, at the JCC.
Although we are going to have a more intimate goodbye at school (on their last day with us) we encourage you to come join us, as part of our OJCS family, to show our appreciation and support of this wonderful program., which continues to inspire our jewish journey and provides a direct and meaningful connection to Israel.
Hope to see you there. 🙂
