Hi Parents, 

Here is the weekly update for November 5th to the 9th.  

General information:

Photo Retakes – Monday, November 5th.

Friday, November 9th - No school for students: Organizational Day.

Report Cards Go Home: Monday, November 19th

Student-Led Conferences: Thursday, November 22nd, 4 – 8pm and Friday, November 23rd 8am – 1pm.

Surveys:  Students will be completing a survey this week that is designed to measure their engagement at CSS! It is called Tell Them from Me. The information gathered from this survey will help to inform future decisions at CSS.

Tuesday Nov 6th: Weaselhead Trip – On Tuesday afternoon, we will be returning to the Weaselhead to take pictures (bring cameras) of our adopted trees, to collect some artifacts (bring Ziplocs) and to do some work related to our Weaselhead O2 problem.  Volunteers would be appreciated… just email your child’s teacher if you can join us!

Math/Science:  Students will receive feedback on their Explorer project proposal tomorrow, via Edmodo.  Students should read the feedback and use it to help them improve their project ideas or guiding questions. Students will have time this week to start/continue their Explorer project research on Wednesday. We will also continue our work on what we are now calling our Weaselhead O2 problem.  Volunteers needed: Mr. Cadman needs a few volunteers to trim laminated material for Tuesday's field trip. The cutting can be done at CSS or at home. Thanks in advance.

Students have officially completed their Historical Change projects. I should have received:

1. Research with a Bibliography

2. Presentation (in class) 

3. Self Assessment  

4. Peer Assessment (completed during presentations)

I will also be providing students with the assessments of their Historical Change projects. Please review these with your child and initial them to indicate you have discussed the project and its assessment with them. Please return by Monday, November 12th.  

This week, students will complete their story plans for our cross-curricular illustrated story on their Weaselhead tree. Published author, Cathy Beveridge will be coming in again this Thursday to continue to work with the students on this project. Next week we will have our expert artist in to help students create their mixed media covers.

Have a wonderful week!
