Students in grade 3, 4, 5, and 6 who enjoy singing are invited to come to choir on Tuesday mornings from 11:15-11:45 a.m. Choir provides an opportunity for students to experience singing in a large group as well as practice various choral techniques to improve their singing voices. In the past our school choir has performed in the Christmas Angels Telethon and the Christmas Concert. The first few weeks of choir will be a "trial" time where students can come to see if they enjoy choir or not. No commitment is required until Oct. 14th. After this date students are not permitted to quit unless a note from home is provided.

If you wish to sell more than 1 booklet, please let the school know. The deadline to return the tickets (sold and unsold) and the money is October 14th! Thank you for your support!!!!

http://www.ednet.ns.ca/pdfdocs/curriculum/LTA_Homework_4-6.pdf (you may have to copy and paste this link)
The Department of Education will also be releasing a P-3 pamphlet, but it will NOT be referred to as homework is not formally required until grade 4.
The department of education states..." In primary to grade 3, formal homework is not required. Teachers can and often do provide families with regular access to books that may be read with young students. This practice supports the cultivation of a love of learning and sharing is encouraged. Teachers may also offer activities for students to complete at home, such as math games. However, such activities should not be regarded as a requirement. Teachers should communicate with parents/guardians about how learning can be supported at home without the formal demand for homework."
