Grade 5 Public Speaking

Hi All,

Sorry for the last minute post but here is some info about the grade 5 Public Speaking:

Both classes will be seated in Mr. Watters’ classroom by 8:45am. All desks have been pushed off to the side and students will be seated in their chairs. The schedule has been posted for a few days. See below.

We will start during the 1st period but to not interrupt gym or French classes, we will pause and then resume 6th period and run all afternoon.

We may need to finish some speeches on Tuesday for timings or appointments.

Have a good evening!

Model Seder

Dear Parents,

Yesterday, we had an amazing time coming together for our grade 5 Model Seder. Students actively participated in the Passover Seder rituals, sang songs, and enjoyed each other’s company. It was truly beautiful to observe their engagement and enthusiasm and I feel grateful to have been a part of such an incredible experience.

As we approach the holiday of Passover, I wish you and your families a Chag Sameach. May this holiday bring us joy, happiness, and continued freedom.
