2-7 Ms. Stauna

Welcome to class 2-7!

We are creating a great learning year!

International Week Jan. 21-25, 2018

Focus Country for 2-7: Philippines

We will be celebrating diversity during International Week from Jan. 21 to Jan 25, 2018. Our class will focus on learning about the Philippines. It is such a beautiful country!

Learn at home: Please have your child do some research so that they could share with the class a small, valuable piece of information about the Philippines during the week. Your student can share what they learned as a poster, a project, or a short talk they give to help us learn what they discovered. Be creative!

Song: We will learn a new song called “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”. Please help your child practice the song at home so he/she can sing it out loud with all the other Year 2 students in our assembly. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a8F28WVXlk

Thursday, Jan 25, 2018 Celebration!

FOOD: On Thursday, as a celebration for the end of International Week, you are welcome to send a traditional dish from your home country’s cuisine. Help your students understand what is in the dish and why it is important in your country's culture. Please send any kind of healthy food or food that represents your home country. Please only send enough for 12 people as we will share. Thank you for your help in making our celebration!

COSTUME: On Thursday, your child can wear traditional dress from your country or something that represents your country. You can be creative with the dress up; it could be a traditional folklore dress or even the colours of your national flag. Please help your child take part and proudly show their sense of belonging as a Global Citizen. This is not required, it just makes learning more interesting when they share part of themselves, too.

We appreciate your cooperation and your support to help make this week informative and fun!

Let us recommit to wearing the proper uniform as outlined in our handbook. We look sharp in our uniforms!

P.E. kit is worn on Monday and Thursday only.

Please wear regular uniform all other days, including black shoes. If students do not know how to tie laces, please buy them velcro closures on the shoes. Untied shoes are a safety issue, especially on the stairs and playground.

On Wednesday, please wear regular uniform. The only difference is the option to wear the house color shirt. It is not required. The regular uniform is required. Wednesday is not a day to wear P.E. kit or sport shoes.

We have two snack times each day except for only one on Thursday.

Here are some ideas for healthy snacks:

    • fruits - peeled or cut for easy eating
    • vegetables - peeled or cut for easy eating
    • salads with fork
    • sandwiches with tuna, meat, vegetables or cheese
    • soup in a thermos with spoon
    • non-sugary cereal with milk and spoon
    • popcorn with no butter or salt
    • chicken or meat pieces
    • hard boiled eggs or fried eggs
    • hummous with arabic bread/pitas
    • olives/pickles
    • dolmas
    • crackers (not biscuits)
    • plain digestives
    • pretzels
    • cheese
    • water
    • 100% juice
    • white milk

Please send a filled 1 liter reusable water bottle with your student. They need to drink a lot of water throughout the day and the small bottles of water are not enough.
