\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMrs. Elia and Mrs. Lubin\r\n\r\n6-9 South\r\n\r\nWe have had an outstanding start to our school year! \u00a0\r\n\r\nMaria Montessori said that \u201cthe child who is served, is limited in his\/her independence\u201d. \u00a0We would like to sincerely thank the parents of 6-9 South in aiding their children as they self-manage their lockers. \u00a0By dropping off your child at our double doors in the morning and heading straight out, you have helped your children to do things for themselves at their lockers. As a result, we are reaping the rewards in the classroom as well. \u00a0Our students are settling in beautifully, making good choices and developing their independence with their work. \u00a0Maria Montessori referred to this as \u201cnormalization\u201d, and this year, we have seen it much earlier than in years before. \u00a0We hope that you are also finding the flow of the morning easier. \u00a0We welcome your feedback. \u00a0\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIn keeping with our tradition, we will be doing a Harvest Soup to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend. \u00a0More details will be included in the children\u2019s agendas, which should be signed each day. \u00a0Please remember our PD Day will be on October 6th. \u00a0\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWe have a field trip planned for our Grade 3 to Westfield Heritage Village on October 23rd. \u00a0This trip will assist the children in understanding the life of the early settlers and be an excellent learning experience for them to augment our studies in class. \u00a0Details of what to wear and pack for lunch will be sent home in your child\u2019s agenda. \u00a0\u00a0\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nOur main studies in October include Plant & Solar System studies, Early Settlers (Grade 3) learning about the passage of time, the concept of money, and grammar.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nThank you again for your help and support. \u00a0We are confident this is going to be a great year!
