We unfortunately had to postpone our field trip to the Kamloops Seniors Village today. They did not have the staff available today due to unforeseen illness and a memorial service today. I have sent December Scholastic forms home today for those interested. If we would like to try and have them back before the holidays we should try to have them in for this Friday. I had told the children Tuesday but I think that is pushing it so lets say Friday November 29. Homework tonight: - home reading (Red Cedar) - study spelling - any unfinished grammar or science Have a good night!
