You guys. This seemed like a nutty busy week. I don't think we even got to Take Home books once. I was so tired this morning I contemplated coming to school in my jammies but thought that might be frowned upon by administration so opted for the next best thing- yoga pants. And have you looked at our June calendar? It is going to be a crazy month with something almost every day. Not following a routine often makes children discombobulated so we will be following our regular schedule as much as possible right through to the end of June to make things (hopefully) easier for everyone. And there might be more than a few 'yoga pants' days in there.
Go forth and Be Awesome!
The Bright Red Book Bus will be visiting Bert Edwards all day on Tuesday, June 2nd!
In the second year of the project, the BRBB is a much like a bookmobile that is full of children's books. It will visit some of the schools in Kamloops every week throughout July and August to give out free books, which can be exchanged for new ones when returned. The project is sponsored by the Stollery Foundation and put together through partnerships between School District #73, The Boys and Girls Club, Literacy in Kamloops, and TNRD Library. It was build on the philosophy that if students have access to books, there is a better chance of them reading over the summer, therefore, decreasing the summer reading slide.
The intent of this visit will be to give the students the opportunity to tour the bus. They will not be allowed to take any books home that day but each class will have a 15 minute time slot to see the bus and peruse the books.
Mrs. Farber has arranged a number of presentations with parents about their jobs for our classes. Mr. Marrington told us about his job at the prison on Friday afternoon, Charli's mom will explain what it is like to work at the hospital on Monday and Cst. McKenzie will be telling us about being a police officer on Tuesday. The children are very curious and have plenty of interesting questions. If you have a job you would like to tell us about, please contact me and we can set a date and time soon. We would love to hear about your jobs!
One more week of May! The weather has been hot and promises to continue to be so through next week. There are some trees on the playground but many children choose to run and play on the field and equipment where there is very little shade. A hat, some sunglasses and a slather of sunscreen before leaving in the morning will help keep Team Awesome protected in the heat and sun.
