It is that time of year again to think about our Christmas Basket Fundraiser. This year our class basket theme is ‘Coffee'. We are asking parents to send in an item to add to our basket. Items could be, ground coffee, coffee beans, coffee pods, fancy sugars and stir sticks etc. Anything you think of that would contribute to a wonderful Coffee experience!
We hope to have our basket completed by November 13th so that it can be displayed in time for Parent-Teacher interviews on November 15th; that way parents can start the bidding. Thank you!

Thank you to those who have already contributed an item or two for our class' theme basket!

The AY Jackson App. Project is an ongoing partnership project (Oct.-Jan) with Grade 9 and 10 Computer Science students at AY Jackson Secondary School. The goal of this unique project is to collaboratively design an educational computer game. The High School Students will be generally coming to our school to work on the project. However, we are scheduled to visit the Secondary School twice to see a few computer programming aspects such as animation and the coding used to create the games. We will share our finished projects in January. The date will be determined soon.
Our first visit to AY Jackson Secondary School will be on Thursday, October 25. Please let me know (via note in agenda) if you would like to volunteer to join us for the visit as well as accompany us on the walk to and from the Secondary School.  Permission forms for this excursion will be coming home soon.
