The Leave-Taking Ceremony will be on Friday, June 22nd at 9:15am (tomorrow). Students are asked to enter the school at the 9:00 bell wearing their "Sunday Best" clothing. We will be starting the Leave-Taking Ceremony around 9:30pm. In order to secure a seat closer to the front, please arrive prior to 9am. Students are asked not to be in the classrooms until 9am when teachers are present. If your child has been selected to bring up their lantern (they know who they are), you are asked to sit in the seats next to the aisle so that you can accompany your child with their lantern.

Thank you for a great year! I am looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow as we celebrate our amazing St.Clare students.

Grade 6 Ski Trip Canceled due to Freezing Rain

Unfortunately, the buses are not running today and we will need to reschedule the trip. I am just as disappointed as the kids. Hopefully, we can get things organized soon. Stay tuned for more details.

Grade 4 Math Quiz-Measurement on Thursday

Students have been working on Measurement since the break. We will be having our end of unit quiz on Thursday. Students will need to know the following information:

  • convert units of measure (kilometer, meter, centimeter, millimeter) by moving the decimal and understanding the quantity of each measure. (Ex. 3cm = ? mm)
  • calculate the distance around a shape that is missing sides (solve for the missing sides first) and calculate the total perimeter.
  • find the area of a shape using square units OR a formula (A=L X W). Make sure to put the little 2 above the units to show that you measured area.
  • determine which unit of measurement would best suit measuring specific distances and/or objects.
  • solve problem-solving questions where students are given a specific perimeter or area and will need to draw and label different shapes to show the perimeter or area. 
  • All exit slips and practice questions have been marked and handed back to students so they can study.

Grade 6 Ski Trip-February 16th & 23rd

This morning we met with Mrs.Moorman's class and went over the rules and procedures for the grade 6 ski trip. 

Here are a few of the points we covered:
  • Students who are not going on the ski trip are still welcome at school. Please let us know your plans for your child not attending the ski trip so that we can make arrangements.
  • Bring cash if you are wanting to purchase food from the concession
  • Backpacks stay on the floor.
  • Students are allowed to bring technology for the bus, but are not to be on their device taking photos on the hill. Teachers will be taking pictures and posting at a later date. Please respect this rule as we have to protect individuals right to privacy and not everyone has permission to have their picture taken and shared.
  • Stay on the ski runs designated for your level.
  • Make sure you remember the number on your skis so that you put on the correct skis.
  • The bus will return by 6:30pm Friday.
