Frisbee Rob

This morning we were lucky enough to go to an assembly with Frisbee Rob. He has many Guinness World Records in frisbee and disc throwing.

Search for him on You-tube to check out some of his videos.

He talked to us about the importance of trying new things, practicing and spending time outdoors rather than playing with technology. He then showed us some of his cool tricks.

Check out this video of him throwing the frisbee through the basketball net! 🏀

9:30 a.m. – 11:50 a.m.

 

 

 

Our Grade 1-4 track and field day is quickly approaching.  The students will be participating in some formal track events as well as fun activities.  This day has been set up so all students feel success and have fun. 

 

Please make sure your child has running shoes, sunscreen (already applied at home) and appropriate attire for this day.   Here are the dates and times for each grade:

Grade 1 and 2 (9:30 – 11:50) – May 29th / Alternate June 1st – Competitive and Fun Events

Grade 3 (9:30 – 11:50) – May 31st / Alternate June 4th – Competitive and Fun Events

Grade 4 May 31st/ Alternate June 4th (9:30- 11:50 at WES / 1:00-3:00 at TES) – Competitive and Fun Events including High Jump in the afternoon.

 

We will be providing students with a healthy snack for the morning during track. Please send a labelled water bottle that students can bring out with them.

Because we are such a new school, we will be busing over to Warman Elementary School to use their field/facilities for our track events. We will be busing back to TES in time for lunch.

Parents are welcome to meet us outside at WES to cheer us on!

Playground Fundraising

Hello parents of Traditions and Holy Trinity Elementary Schools! Your playground planning committees have been hard at work planning and organizing some fundraising events to help us build, and pay for, the playgrounds at the schools and we need your help!

First we have arranged to run a BBQ outside the local Co-op Grocery Store during Warman’s Annual Spring Community Garage Sale on Saturday, May 26.  We need volunteers to help cook and serve hot dogs, burgers, and drinks.

Second, as you may have heard, we are running a Value Village FUNDrive collecting donations that Value Village will pay us for!  On Sunday, May 27, we have a final drop-off of items at the Legends Centre parking lot and need volunteers to help us load and sort into trailers.

There will be members of the Playground Planning Committees on site for both events.

Please follow this link to sign up for a volunteer shift:  http://signup.com/go/zLyOhAm

 

We greatly appreciate any and all help we get from our parents! Please consider donating your time to make these two events a success and get us closer to our goal of completing, and paying for, these playgrounds!

Sincerely,

Your Traditions and Holy Trinity Elementary Schools Joint Playground Planning Committee

Traditions Elementary Bike Rodeo

Traditions Elementary Bike Safety Rodeo

ATTENTION PARENTS OF GRADE 1-4 STUDENTS:

Traditions Elementary School will be hosting a bike safety rodeo for all Grade 1 to 4 students on Thursday, May 17th. Each class will spend about 30 minutes completing the various stations in our EAST PARKING LOT. Please send your child’s bike and his/her helmet along to participate in the activities.

A properly fitting helmet MUST be worn for participation in the riding events. Children that cannot bring a bike will still be able to participate in some of the safety events. As we are anticipating many bikes, they can be secured in the bike racks, along the east side of the school or the east parking lot fence.

Thank you to the Legends Centre for organizing this event for us. They have requested parent volunteers to assist in this event. Please contact the Legends at csr@warman.ca or call 306-933-2201 if you are able to help. Our goal is to educate your child on the importance of bike safety, the rules of the road, and wearing a properly fitted helmet.

We are hoping for great weather and will communicate any last minute changes by email and on our school website.

We will be finishing the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory next week. As a treat, we are going to watch the movie. It is a longer movie so we will watch part of it on Thursday, and the rest on Friday. I told the kids that they could bring a treat to have on Friday afternoon while they watch.

Enjoy your weekend!

We have been busy working on some Earth Day Writing which will be our writing sample to share for April. It will be coming home in the red Learning Journey Duo-tangs early next week.

In Math we are learning my favourite strategy for adding 2-digit numbers. I will be posting a video on Fresh Grade soon explaining the strategy to parents and showing you how we use it. Please contact me if you have any questions about this.

Get outside and enjoy the weather this weekend!
