Thank You!

A great big THANK YOU to all parents, friends, grandparents, family, and others who attended our Christmas concert last night.

We had fun putting the skits and songs together and hope you had fun watching.

It was really interesting to learn about different cultures around the world and how they celebrate the holidays.

Halloween is coming

The grade 4/5 class is getting very excited for Halloween.  There has been lots of talk about costumes and the assembly on Thursday.  We even had a chance to carve pumpkins in table groups thanks to Alyssa and her parents who donated 6 pumpkins to our class.  The students worked so well together and came up with some very interesting pumpkins.

Draws were made in our class to send each of these carved pumpkins home with a student to put it out on  their doorstep tomorrow evening.

REMINDER - We will be encouraging staff and students at Watson School to dress in costumes IN THE AFTERNOON only.

The K-5 students will be having a costume parade in the gym at 2:18pm.
Parents are welcome to attend the parade and stay for our monthly Raider of the Month assembly (scheduled to take place from 2:45 - 3:00).

Drop Everything And Read (DEAR)

All of Watson School participated in the 2013 Canada DEAR day reading for 20 minutes right after lunch.  It was amazing to see everyone in the class reading a good fit book and enjoying this quiet time to become really engaged in the story.
