Dear Parents,

 Language Arts:  Students have been given a book review to complete based on their own reading of novels. They are to be written and typed , and can be edited at home with parent help.  The first one is due November 1.

 Math: this week we begin a unit on Numeration - working with big numbers and decimals. 

 We have a field trip on November 7th.  More information will come in a notice next week.

  Parent Teacher interview begin Oct 18th.  We encourage all parents to sign up and check on the progress of your child. 

 Please remember to: 

 -check your child’s planner for a record of homework and upcoming events.  All work should be brought to school each day and not left at home.

 - If your child misses a day or portion of a day, you will need to send an email to the office with a brief explanation. If you pick your child up early from school, you must report to the office to check them out.

 It is cold outside!  Students should have their school sweaters and jackets now for cold and wet weather days!

Earphones with microphone for French class!

By this Thursday, March 26

Bonjour Parents!

We are getting ready to launch Duolingo.com as our class learning tool this week!

www.duolingo.com is a web-based language learning tool that puts together grammar, vocabulary, listening and speaking skills all into one trackable, fun learning tool.  Students will create a profile using their lgca.ca domain but will not have access to use this e-mail.  It is only for creating a trackable learning profile.  Only LGCA Tech Support and I will be able to get into the e-mail (in case the student forgets their password and has to reset it).  

Students are not permitted to "follow" other students or learners on duolingo.  This strict prevention is to ensure safety of your child--and keep their learning focussed on the course material!

Please ensure that your child has a set of earphones that have a microphone attached (headset or earbud style is fine).  The set provided with my cell phone is what I use. PLEASE LABEL THE EARPHONE/MICROPHONE SET CLEARLY, as they will be kept at school in a location-secured box between lessons.  This is to ensure no "I forgot them" will prevent participation in class:)

Thanks for your support!

Bonne journée,

Madame Pelz
