Dear Parents and Students,

What a whirlwind these last couple of weeks have been! With the end of the trimester almost upon us, there are many things we have going on.

6th grade English classes are continuing to read Anne of Green Gables and students recently submitted their essays about how the people of Avonlea react to the interesting ideals of Anne Shirley.

7th and 8th grade students have been continuing their work on their research assignments. As we approach the end of the trimester I am seeing many outlines and assignments come through google docs. Make sure to check the Research Comp. tab for assignments and due dates!

Library classes continue as normal and students will find out in December who has won the “No Overdue Books” Challenge for Tri 1. For those who are wondering, Kindergarten students will also begin to bring books home in December so be on the lookout for those!

For additional information and homework assignments, please see the individual class tabs.

“What I want to get out of my course is some knowledge of the best way of living life and doing the most and best with it. I want to learn to understand and help other people and myself.” ~Anne Shirley, Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Mongomery







K-5 Students have library class once each week for 30 min. Attached below is our schedule.

Library Schedule

Throughout the next two weeks, students will be hearing about the “No Overdue Library Books” challenge. Every couple of weeks, I will run a report through the library database to find out which students have overdue library books (i.e. have kept them for more than two weeks – students know this as “in the red”). In addition to sending home notices, there will be a bulletin board with each homeroom and the number of overdue library books. The homeroom with the LEAST number of overdue books at the end of the trimester will get to have an outdoor library class (read aloud outside followed by a bonus recess). Homerooms with ZERO overdue books will receive an additional reward on top of their outdoor class.

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” ~Anne Shirley


Students are continuing to read Anne of Green Gables in class. We have had a few lively discussions about the funny scrapes Anne gets herself into and the amusing ways she talks. We have learned many new vocabulary words as well. We are just over the halfway point of the book so stay tuned for some more adventures in the land of Avonlea.

Lit. & Comp. Schedule



With the end of the trimester almost upon us, 7th and 8th grade students need to make sure they are completing and submitting their work. Attached below is the outline of assignments we have had throughout the trimester and the final deadline for these assignments is Tuesday, November 21. Grading for this trimester will be based on the completion of these 4 assignments.
