Also, another reminder to send your contact information to our classroom parent Kathy Richmond ( if you haven't already done so. Thanks!

Make Some Noise!!

Good news!

The Character Education assembly has been rescheduled so that we will be able to participate. I am attaching two links to Stand Up (Make Some Noise): the official video and a second copy of the video that has the lyrics. There are some spelling and grammar mistakes in the second video, but it gives you a starting point to learn the song.

Practise, practise, practise and we'll show Ms Vlassis what great performers you are at the next Grade 4 choir practice!

Stand up and make some noise! :)

If you see this link, please let other P1 students know. Not everyone checks the website regularly. Merci!
