Homework Reminder for Parents

Dear Parents,

We had a very adorable Picture Day today...thank you for dressing up your little ones in such adorable little outfits. Each one of them was very excited and happy to be photographed. Our photographer, John Christianson was getting quite creative with the individual and group shots and will be preparing the photos for the parents to view over the course of the next couple of weeks. Once photos are ready, we will update you with details on how to order pictures.

Just a reminder to parents that the purpose of homework assignments is so that parents can assist their children on perfecting and reinforcing the handwriting and math skills that they are learning in class. Please ensure that you sit with your child and encourage them to use proper formation, particularly with handwriting homework. We noticed in the past couple of weeks that homework has been coming back to school obviously done by the children alone. We do encourage you to encourage your children to do the homework independently (where they hold the pencil themselves) but that you are still there to supervise in case of sloppiness or error in letter formation.

Please also continue practicing memory verses with your children on a daily basis. This week's memory verse, John 3:16, is a particularly long one in both English and French and will require a little bit of extra time. The French memory verses are just about ready to become available here on our web site within the next couple of days so please stay tuned for that resource as well.

Thank you very much and God bless you all,

Teachers Jen and Jean
