Camp Reminders

Camp is just around the corner and we hope everyone is excited! Throughout this week 3B is having an opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts about camp. For the most part, the children are showing a growth mindset and enthusiasm and most are just asking some logistical questions. That being said,  it would be great if you could help your child allay fears (if any) by discussing what they are worried about, and to help with strategies that might overcome this.
On Friday, the children will be informed of their Camp Team and sleeping arrangements. A few weeks back the students were asked to share with us names of children they would like to be with and we can guarantee every child has least one friend with them. We have spent a lot of time trying to ensure there is a balance between being with a friend who will make them feel comfortable and also having a chance to interact with some other peers.

 If your child is taking medication please place it in a labeled ‘Zipoc’ bag with clear directions for use to be handed in Friday or upon arrival on MondayPlease also email me letting me know that your son/daughter will have this medication with them.

In case of personal or family emergency during camp, we would like to remind you to contact Mr. Rob Grantham directly at 9621 9751 or at, NOT the homeroom teacher. If necessary, you can reach him through the reception office at 2525 7088 and he will get back to you as soon as possible.

Here is a copy of the kit list to help the children with their packing. A reminder that on Monday wearing his/her school PE uniform. There is always lots of lost and found at camp, so please label all of your child’s clothing –especially PE shorts as they are all the same!It would also be helpful if the luggage was labelled with a name tag. As rain is a possibility, it would also be a good idea to have extra socks and to have rain jackets packed in day packs not in the big bags.

We will depart school around 8:00 on Monday and plan to arrive back at CDNIS by 1:15 on Wednesday.  Students can take their regular school buses home or are welcome to be picked up. If you are picking up your child before 2:20, please let me know and sign them out from the 9th-floor office.

I know from experience how awesome, yet exhausting, camp can be, and I fully expect that Wednesday will be a very early bedtime for everyone (including me!). If your child is really tired, please know that there is nothing wrong with allowing a little sleep in on Thursday morning 🙂

Last but not least, if you are interested, you can follow us on Twitter #CDNISG3camp . 

Is that all? I think so. If you have any further questions, please just let me know.

Looking forward to a great few days!
