Hello Runkle School Community,
This week at Runkle was another busy week of learning! I wish I could share all that goes on in each of the grades; but as our teachers share classroom learning through their own newsletters, I would just like to share a couple of activities I saw this week.
Cardboard Challenge: The Enrichment Challenge Support teacher, Debbie Mercer, partnered with some of the Grade 2 and 5 classrooms and encouraged the students to use their imagination to build ‘something’ using recycled material.
Math Centers: Students in Grade 2 are working on Number and Operations in Base Ten; understanding place value. Students learn to read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names and expanded form. The Centers allow students to engage in the work in multiple forms while applying the concept learned.
In observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday our school will close early and students will be dismissed at noon on Wed, Nov 22nd. School will also be closed Thur, Nov 23rd and Fri, Nov 24th, resuming on Mon, Nov 27th.
Please can you take a minute to check LOST and FOUND bins scattered around Runkle. There are 3 bins in total. One is located on the cafeteria level by the stairs, another is outside the Grade 4/5 corridor and the third bin is outside the art room/Grade 7-8 corridor. Please help us reduce the pile before winter is in full swing. Eventually all unclaimed items will be donated to a charity.
Finally, if you are interested in attending a workshop on how math is taught in elementary schools, here is a useful notification:
