Go Time - September Update

Friday, September 7, 2018

TGIF! Even though the summer is over, football is back, Major League Baseball is heating up for playoffs (sadly without my Jays anywhere near joining the party) and I've kicked off another year of adventures in grade five. More importantly… We all survived the first week of school!  I just wanted to give you all an update on some of the things we will be doing in the coming weeks. Going forward, you can expect to get one of these larger updates about once a month, usually at beginning of the month, so that we are all on the same page about what is going on. I apologize though in advance that this update...

Finish Line Approaching - April Update

April is exciting. Major League Baseball is back and (apparently) spring is supposed to start (not sure what is going on with that one though…) With Spring Break behind us we’re in the final push to the end of the year. We’ve got lots to do and it’s going to be one heck of a ride. Here’s a quick run down of what we have going on.

Feeling the Love? - February Update

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

What a ride. Hard to believe that not even a month ago we were on our winter break. What holiday? What sleeping in? What unbelievable powder at Big White and Silverstar? I was planning on sending this out yesterday but ended up too angry at Frolik for shooting the puck at our own goalie, leading to 3 goals in 53 seconds for a loss. I had to breathe and pace and not say angry things. Anyways, here is your February update, as well as a Term 1 update from Phys. Ed, French, and Music. Sorry it’s a long read this month…

Important Dates

Wednesday, February 7th – Winter Walk Day

Hold On Tight - November Update

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

So this is some real math coming at you… we’re looking at 13.5 more days of school until Mr. Polsky will be at the Canada Day Blue Jays game against the Red Sox. WE are excited. I guess that also means we’re looking at 13.5 days until I have to say goodbye to this fantastic group of student - seriously my least favourite part of the year. Anyways… moving on before we get mushy and sentimental... June kicked off at a furious pace and we just finished the best week ever; 3 field trips in 5 days plus Sports Day. I don’t know about you, but I slept like a rock on Friday night. With jsut 13.5 days of school...

Kick Off - September Update

Monday, September 11, 2017

So it's the best time of year. Even though the summer is over, football is back, Major League Baseball is heating up for playoffs and I've kicked off another year of adventures in grade five. We all survived the first week together and I just wanted to give you all an update on some of the things we will be doing in the coming weeks. Going forward, you can expect to get one of these larger updates about once a month, usually at beginning of the month, so that we are all on the same page about what is going on.

At any point this year, you can check out all things grade 5 on this website or...
