Language update

Dear Parents,

A quick update, we are currently working on persuasive essay. As you know, the speech competition is this Wednesday February 27, 2013 and the topic is 'character is key'. For the past week and this week, students have been working and preparing for the competition. Over the past few days, students have been presenting their speeches to classmate.  They have worked really hard and a lot of dedication has been put into it. I'm very proud and pleased with every essay I have heard so far. We have selected three students to repersent the grade 5 in the speech competition. We are looking forward to hearing the speeches as a class.

As well, the ski trip will be on ThursdayFebruary 28, 2013 as a reminder.

The week of  March 4 - March 8 we will be working on the book reports. The book reports will be on the 'The Cay'. The outline of the book report will be handed out to students on Friday and will be posted as soon as the outline is discussed with the students.

Thank you for your cooperation,


Tr. Merve
