The annual St Paul Book Fair is here!
St. Paul will be holding a Scholastic Book Fair on November 6th – 9th. At the “Saddle Up & Read Book Fair” you’ll find stories to set your imagination free or escape to another world, and turn you into a lifelong reader!
Every purchase you make will benefit our Library with new books for all to read. Through this Book Fair literacy and fundraiser, Scholastic gives us the opportunity to purchase various Library materials for the enjoyment of all.
The Elementary Progress Report Card, Grades 1 – 8 is designed to share information with parents about their child’s general progress early in the school year in the development of the learning skills and work habits, as well as a student’s general progress in working towards the achievement of the curriculum expectations. Progress reports will not include marks or letter grades, but rather progress will be reported by indicating if the student is PWD “progressing with difficulty”, PW “progressing well”, or PVW “progressing very well”. This report is intended to provide parents with an early indication of their child’s progress. Progress reports will be sent home on Tuesday, November 7th.
At St. Paul, it is our wish that every student has a parent/guardian meet with their child’s teacher in the fall and that the student attend the conference as well if possible.
Parent/teacher/student conferences will take place for students in grades 1 – 8 on Thursday, November 9th from 3:30 – 9:00 pm. Interview times will be sent home with your child’s Progress Report on November 7 and are based on the times families provided to teachers last week.
**Please note – Junior and Senior Kindergarten children have classroom visits coming up during the week of November 13 – 16 and are not involved in this interview process.
Do you have leftover Halloween Candy that keeps tempting you? Are you looking for a way to get rid of it? Look no further!
Please consider donating your leftover Halloween Candy to the school – we use this to creating guessing jars and raffles during the Christmas season. Proceeds from these raffles go directly into the school to support student needs.
MATH AT HOME
We continue to focus on Proportional Reasoning at school – below is a sample question that helps to high light the importance of being able to think ‘proportionally’. Try to answer it at home.
Ella is buying some cola for her friends. She can go to the vending machine and get 355 ml cans for $0.90 per can; she can go to the corner store and get 591 ml bottles for $1.45 per bottle, or she can go to the grocery store and get 2L big bottles for $2.35 each.
She has $4.90 to spend. If she only has time to go to one place, where can she get the most cola?
Bonus Challenge: If Ella has time to go to more than one place, how can she get the most for her money?
Please take a moment to check out our Math Challenge Bulletin Board by the Main Office when you come in on Thursday for interviews – there is a place for parents to answer the questions as well!
