September 3rd - September 6th

Welcome Back, everyone! I will be your Grade 5 Math and Language Teacher this year. My name is Mrs. Kirsty Chamberland. Students will be taking home a newsletter on Tuesday that includes a brief outline of the school year. 

I update my Blog on a weekly basis. I like to keep parents informed on what is going on in the classroom. I also take pictures of various activities happening throughout the school year. I post these pictures on my Twitter account. 

I suggest buying your child an agenda from the Dollar Store. I am aware that not everyone will be checking my Blog regularly. On Tuesday there will be a number of forms coming home with your child on Tuesday. Please fill them out and return to school as soon as possible. 

I look forward to working with your child this year!!
