January 9th – Winter is Here!

IN THIS ISSUE: (click CONTINUE READING below to access links.)

It’s raining and our snow may soon all melt away.  I know some of you are wishing for more snow – it may still come.  Rain or snow, our Winter weather continues to surprise us.

WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE

It’s that time of year again, when the weather gets chilly and the occasional flurries start to fall. The School District handles some snow removal on sidewalks and walkways on school property; we also continue to do what we can to keep our school access paths clear of snow and ice by using salt and snow shovels. We appreciate how students and parents are being mindful of the cold and icy conditions wearing appropriate footwear and walking carefully on our sidewalks. Thank you!

Winter conditions sometimes results in icy sidewalks.  Be careful!

Just a reminder that students go outside during their recess and lunch time breaks. Please send your children each morning, or remind them, to wear warmer outerwear and to take along mittens or gloves, a hat and a scarf to help keep them warm during these colder and, sometimes, windy Winter days.

Even Ms. Shantz, our school counsellor, comes prepared for Wintery weather!

Don’t forget warm and waterproof boots – not only to keep feet cozy, but to prevent slipping and falling.  Thank you for your support in making all our students safe and warm!

Students and teachers are settling in and getting back into routines.  There’s  lots of new and exciting learning going on . . .

Cambridge hallways and classrooms are adorned with Winter inspired artwork.  Here are three hallway displays created by “bigs” in Div. 3, “middles” in Div. 13, and “littles” in Div. 24.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: SNOWFLAKE WATCHING

Physicist Ken Libbrecht has an obsession with snowflakes and has travelled the world studying and documenting them. Because of their complexity no two snowflakes are the same and provide a limitless variety of shapes and structures to study. We hope you and your child/ren enjoy this fascinating look at Snowflakes!
