Dear Parents,
We hope you had a fantastic extra long family day weekend. 
Here is the weekly update for February 20-22, 2013. 

- Please return Kiwanis Music Festival field trip forms ASAP. 
- Fun Casino is on March 2nd.  It is not a fundraising event, but is instead intended to be a parent social event.
- Report cards go home on March 4th. 
- Student Led inferences are March 7th, 4-8pm, and March 8th, 8am - 1pm.
- We have made some updates to our class website. We tried to make it a little easier to navigate. Please let us know if you like the changes. 

This week students will compete their Winter Camp news articles for The Spectrum. We will also review the provincial government quizzes and examine how the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects our individual and collective rights. Next week we will begin our unit on ancient Athens, as well as begin our novel study. 

We will continue working with fractions. Several videos have been posted on the blog from last Tuesday, Feb. 12th. They are a good resource. We will have a short quiz Friday on comparing, adding, and modelling fractions and mixed numbers. Sky Science wraps up this week. Wednesday morning we are having a visit from an astrophysicist. Students will be involved in writing the quiz and study guide for this unit. Sky Science Quiz will take place early next week. 

Just a reminder that the SETI wrap-up problem and Bird Seed Problems are due Wednesday, Feb. 20th.

Our next unit is Evidence and Investigation. In preparation Mr. Neil and Mr. Cadman are looking for experts in the fields of forensic sciences, criminal investigation, fire investigation, law enforcement, and many others. If you are interested in being a guest speaker, or know someone who might me, please email Mr. Cadman.
