Winter Books Before Bedtime

Please join us for Gr. 1- 4

WINTER BOOKS BEFORE BEDTIME LITERACY NIGHT

@ Jack MacKenzie School, Thurs., Dec. 8, 2016, from 7-8 PM

Have you ever built a snowman and discovered the next day that his grin has gotten a little crooked, or his tree-branch arms have moved? And you've wondered . . . what do snowmen do at night? Come and hear this witty, imaginative story that reveals amusing details about the secret life of snowmen and where they go at night. 

  Following this, author, teacher and speaker, Trina Markusson will be here to share her book “Good Morning Sunshine.”  Parents and children can learn about mindfulness in this heartwarming story about a boy named Zachary who wakes up feeling worried.  Together with his mother, he learns about the power of mindfulness and finding peace and happiness in the present moment.

 

Then enjoy some cookies, candy, and hot chocolate

while you snuggle up with your little ones and read a wintery tale or two.

Dear Jack MacKenzie Families:

 

 As you are all aware, November 11 is Remembrance Day.

 

On November 11, 1918 at 11:00 am, the First World War came to an end.  It lasted over four years, killed or injured nearly 30 million military personnel and devastated some of the world’s biggest empires.  It changed the future of people, countries and continents.  Canada’s contribution was significant, unprecedented and costly.  The country came out proud and victorious, while mourning the loss or injury of 250,000 Canadians.  Throughout November, we REMEMBER.

 

We honour those men and women who fought in various conflicts, so we are able to live in a country that is safe and free.  The poppy is a symbol associated with Remembrance Day and shows that we are thinking about and honouring those who bravely fought for us.  It is important that everyone knows the meaning of wearing a poppy. 

 

As a sign of respect for our veterans, everyone at Jack MacKenzie School will be provided with a poppy to wear for Remembrance Day.  We are asking all students to bring a Toonie donation for this poppy prior to the Remembrance Day ceremony which will be held on Wednesday, November 9, 2016.  If every student brought just $2.00 for their poppy, our school would raise over $800.00 for our veterans.  Let’s all work together to show honour and appreciation for our veterans.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jack MacKenzie Staff.
