Dear Parents, Friday, May 10
Staff Appreciation Week has brought a wealth of positive spirit to everyone here, along with the tide of treats, flowers and recognition. The personal notes and drawings that individual students have delivered to us each day are truly heartwarming. My own office wall is festooned with their colorful and lovely tributes. A resounding ‘thank you!’ to our CCPTO for organizing such a terrific celebration of our teachers and support staff, who dedicate so much time and energy on behalf of our students.
This week, students have been…
Starting up their tennis unit in PE with Mr. Holloway;
Practicing counting by tens using money units with Ms. Coolidge;
Learning categories of analogies in Language Arts with Ms. Tilton;
Reviewing kinematic equations in science with Ms. Parrott;
Rehearsing American colonial scences with Ms. Udelhofen, Mrs. Ryan and Mrs. Storrs;
Studying regular polygons with Mr. Budd;
Learning about points of view in their reading with Ms. Varga;
Students in grades 5 and 6 are also in their second week of Midsummer Night’s Dream play practice and really getting into the various character roles.
We also had our Student of the Month assembly, at which awards were presented for academic achievement and citizenship. We also had some special visitors here – the Windsor Elks -- to present an award for an essay contest on Americanism. The first place winner in their local division is our own Lucas Prignano, who also won the 2nd place prize for the state-wide competition! We’re hoping to get photos of this month’s winners up on the website soon, so do check it out, as we had many students recognized.
