Gr 3 Year End Celebration

Dear Grade 3 Parents,

Can you believe the end of the year is just around the corner? It seems like this year has just flown by with all of the exciting experiences we’ve had in Grade 3!

To celebrate a successful year, we’re organizing a day full of fun activities on Tuesday, June 6 at school for all Grade 3 students. This is a separate event from our in class celebrations. We have more than enough support for the activities, so parent volunteers will not be needed.

All students will be going to Chinese in the morning and to any specialists they have scheduled during the day. All students should wear their PE uniforms as it will be an active day and we want to ensure that everyone is comfortable.

We’d like to make this day a special event so, we’re asking that each student bring in $40 for a pizza lunch and delicious snacks. Please send the $40 to school with your child by Wednesday, May 31.

Thank you again for all of your support this year!

All the best,

The Grade 3 Team

 

Message from a Grade 6 Student: Stop Human Trafficking

Dear Students, Teachers, and Parents,

Would you like to help human trafficking illegal in Hong Kong? During Exhibition My team and I have been working on this issue and we would like help to raise awareness for this. We interviewed a lawyer, Patricia Ho which is working to help human trafficking Victims. She has made a Petition for people to sign in order to make this issue illegal in Hong Kong, it is called ‘Hong Kong Government to make human trafficking illegal. Please take a minute to help make human trafficking illegal!

This week in 3D, we’ve been watching “The Story of Stuff” videos and learning about what choices we can make as consumers. We discussed the implications for consumers, worker health and the environment when we purchase cosmetics, electronics and bottled water.

We have been working on our quick recall of division facts in class. Next week, students will bring home a division packet, similar to the multiplication packets that were sent home a few weeks ago. Students are asked to complete at least one page a day. In class, we’ve been making connections between division and fractions and noticing that both require equal sharing.  We have also started planning a persuasive text about camp

 

Have a nice weekend!
