Welcome to G1! We are so excited for a new and wonderful year. This week, we have been BUSY getting to know one another as a class and school community. We have explored our learning space, trying out new activities like painting, building, reading, cutting, and drawing. We have also practiced how to walk up and down the stairs and hallways, line up in a new spot, and change in the changing rooms for PE and swimming. It has been A LOT of new information!


Please make sure that your child’s uniform is up to standard. New uniforms should be worn. If your child is wearing a skirt/skort, please make sure that they are NOT wearing leggings. Children now have a variety of choices for their school uniform including pants and shorts. Please see the SEA department with any questions.

Homework/At home learning

For this first week of school, we are NOT sending homework. If you want to support your child with home learning this week, please have conversations with them and ask them questions. Some ideas…

  1. What did you eat for lunch?
  2. Did you catch anyone doing something funny?
  3. What games did you play at recess?
  4. What was the funniest thing that happened today?
  5. Did anyone do anything super nice for you?
  6. What was the nicest thing you did for someone else?
  7. Who made you smile today?

You were sent a reminder SMS message early this week regarding PE uniforms. PLEASE send your child to school with a SEPARATE LABELED BAG that contains their PE uniform and swimming uniform on the correct days.


Grade 1 students will begin to change in the changing room for PE and swimming. By labeling their bag, you are helping your child be RESPONSIBLE for their belongings, and helping them to become INDEPENDENT.

All classes have LIBRARY on Thursday. Your child should have library books in their backpack today, as it was our first visit to see Ms. Earth and choose two books to take home. Please help your child be responsible and return their books every Thursday. The books they checked out today are due next Thursday, August 24th. 

We have had a wonderful first week and can’t wait to see what the year has in store!

Have a happy week!

-The Grade 1 Team
