End of Year Swimming

The grade fours will be swimming at Surrey Sports and Leisure next Tuesday.  Please remind your child to come prepared with their swimsuits, towels, and any other gear they might need - ie: goggles, hair elastics, brush/comb, 50 cents for locker etc.  As part of our year-end wrap up, we will also be enjoying pizza for lunch that day!  :-)  Students will receive up to two slices of cheese or pepperoni pizza.  Students should still bring their own snacks and drinks that day.

4V - "We Are" Project

It's hard to believe that we are on the cusp of our last month together in 4V!  Where has the time gone?  We have spent A LOT of time focusing on character development this year. In devotions we have explored a variety of different character attributes including responsibility, respect, self-control, patience, honesty, and creativity.  Themes of gratitude and empathy are two other big ideas we have spent a lot of time on.  This week we did our best to pull it all together and brainstorm all of the positive attributes that are represented in our class.  We're not saying that we have all mastered all of these traits, but we recognize their importance and the fact that we all have areas where we can improve!

A Message to the Grade Fours From Mrs. Stegeman

Greetings from Ms. Stegeman on "El Camino de Santiago"

Dear Grade Four, 

I thought of you today as I was walking. I could hear frogs croaking, see storks flying above me and little mice kept crossing the path in front of me. Have you visited the pond lately? Is Raphael Yertle the Turtle's grave still there? 

Walking the Camino is going very well. It is challenging walking 20-25 km a day. We often sleep in albergues (hostels) with people all over the world. One night we slept in one room with 96 other people. The scenery is spectacular. 

Hope you have a great finish to your year.
