Welcome to our class blog! My name is Mrs.Chamberland and I teach grade 5 Math & Language. I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year.
I have taught Kindergarten to grade 6 over the past 16 years in 3 different schools. I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a B.Ed. I feel it is essential for us (parents and school staff) to work together in order to provide your child with an optimum learning environment. You can contact me through our class blog, the agenda, or call the school.
Our homeroom will be room #113. Each child will be bringing home a schedule of their day and a list of their teachers for your reference. This year, I will be teaching both Math and English Language Arts to Grade 5.
Students may want to bring their own labeled pencil kit, but it is not essential as we also have classroom supplies. Each child will require a pair of indoor running shoes with non-marking souls for use in the gym and classroom, and a water bottle to keep on their desk. We also welcome boxes of Kleenex, Ziplock bags, pre-cut tennis balls and hand soap for general classroom use at any time during the year.
Please remember that the safety and well-being of our students is of the utmost importance. Chapel Hill is a nut-free, peanut-free and scent-free school. Please check the ingredients of lunch and snack foods carefully, and enjoy any containing nuts or peanuts at home only. Please keep this in mind when we are on school excursions. As well, parents volunteering at the school are asked to avoid the use of perfumes and other scented products for the comfort and safety of students with environmental sensitivities. Your cooperation is very important and greatly appreciated.
I look forward to meeting many of you next Thursday, September 14th at 6:30.
