In recognition of Bus Safety Week, the kindergarten students participated in a bus-safety tour last Monday. After watching an informative video, students went out and practised bus-riding procedures, such as getting on, riding quietly, and emergency exits. The students then took a short tour around town.

It was a great learning experience for all of the students, as all Clearview students ride buses for field trips.

Last Tuesday, our grades 4 and 5 students had an author visit from Robert Heidbereder in the PAC. He is the author of such books such as See Saw Saskatchewan and Drumheller Dinosaur Dance.

It was a fun morning.

Also, October features Fire Prevention Week. Last Wednesday, Regional Deputy Fire Chief Etienne Brugman visited our school to inform students about fire prevention, and what to do in case of fire. He also took them outside to look at the fire truck. That was a highlight of the kindergarten students’ week.

On Thursday, our students enjoyed a presentation called “Splash N Boots” in the PAC. It was a great time and we all had a lot of fun singing and dancing!

Thanks again to our parents for all of your help assisting with your child’s independence and allowing them to enter and exit the school by themselves. It really fosters a sense of them feeling successful of the things that they can accomplish on their own.

As well, remember that we do go outside to play almost every day, so sending along clothing appropriate for the weather is important. Unfortunately, it seems like it is mitten weather already!

Grade 2 student Kira Johnson’s grandparents and mom brought her donkey, Laddie, to the school for her Star of the Week sharing. The students in 2SG were able to have a ride on the donkey. It was very exciting!

More exciting news for 2SG is they won a Terry Fox pizza party that they will use for their reading party in November, after they have read 500 books as a class.

A big thank-you goes out to the 50 Grade 1 parents who came to our school Tuesday evening to learn some tools to help their children become fluent and successful readers. That will go a long way to ensuring consistency between home and school reading skills.
