Grade 3 Spotlight and Spotlight Prep:
Grade 3 will have their Spotlight on March 13 at 1:00pm in the LLAC. If you have a conflict and can’t make Tuesday, Ms. Benusa says it’s ok for you to come to the dress rehearsal on Monday 12th at 1:00 in LLAC .
Ms. Benusa has created a blog post with performance prep material for students here. It is important that all students look to see what they still need to do.
iTime Projects & CNY Get Together
Dear 3B Parents,
On February 9 from 1:20 to 2:20pm, our class will welcome the Year of the Dog with an iTime project sharing session along with a sampling of traditional food eaten during Chinese New Year.
Please see this LINK sign up sheet for food ideas. If there is an item that is traditionally eaten in your home which you would like to share, please feel free to bring it in.
Best wishes for a healthy and joyful Year of the Dog!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
3B Valentine’s Day Party
Dear 3B Parents,
Our class will be having a Valentine’s Day celebration on February 12 from 1:20 to 2:20pm.
The students will be decorating and eating Valentine’s cookies and they will also be making Valentine’s Day cards.
It would be great we can have volunteers bring in some drinks and a healthy snack (ie. fruit) to go with their cookies. LINK to Sign-up
Ooooh! Aaahhh! It’s so pretty. These were some of the thoughts 3B had when our guest artist, Ms. Roong, came in to share how she expresses herself, her culture, and Hong Kong culture. There were lots of symbols and traditions that reflect Hong Kong culture: dragon boats, the star ferry, lanterns, teapots and more.
She wowed 3B with her adept carving skills, and showed them how to create their own stamps with some rubber, tracing paper, a pencil, and a carving tool.
Excellent artists in 3B decided to create their own designs.
A big thank you to all the parents who came in to make sure that there were only a few nicks on fingers. But luckily we had many Band Aids handy!

“I want my child to be happy” The wish and reality
LS Parent Coffee Morning, February 8 at LLAC, 8:00-9: 30am. As parents, we want the best for our child, rush to help, soothe, and fix, it’s only natural. In this talk, Dr. Minna Chau will share her insight and research findings on how a certain kind of devotion to happiness creed hurts in long run, rather than help. RSVP
