Parents and students,

In order to stay on top of regular classwork, and to keep the classroom running smoothly, please note the following routines and policies.
  • SPELLING - We begin each week with a new lesson in the Spelling workbook.  Workbook lessons and three column sheets (downloadable below) are to be completed by Wednesday mornings for marking in class.  Spelling tests are every Friday.
  • PHYSICAL EDUCATION - Students are expected to have a complete gym strip at school every day.  Since Thursdays begin with P.E., students must come to school dressed in their gym strips and pack their school uniforms.
  • BAND - Tuesdays and Fridays are Band days.  Students must have their instruments and band supplies at school on these days.
  • READING - Students should have a chapter book or some reading of interest in the classroom to read silently after lunch.  I encourage students to choose chapter books rather than comics, graphic novels, and Guinness World Records books in order to build reading and creative writing skills.
  • LUNCHES - Students have 15 minutes to come inside after the bell, eat their lunches, and clean up their work areas.  With such limited time, I must ask you for two big favours:
    • Please avoid packing lunches that require reheating.
    • Please put any necessary cutlery in your child's lunch bag.
  • The microwave in the staffroom is for teacher use only, and cutlery often goes missing when loaned out.  These two practices make lunch time go much more smoothly.  Thank you!

If you have questions or concerns, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.

    Kindly,

    Peter Horner - peter.horner@holytrinityschool.ca
