It is hard to believe that we are already beginning to think about Kindergarten for September of 2015. However, before we know it, that first day of Kindergarten will be upon us and new Kindergarten students will be at our doorstep!
If your son or daughter will be five by December 31, 2015 he or she is elibible to attend Kindergarten in the fall of 2015. We invite you to call the school at (306) 791-8510 or stop by to pick up a registration package.
George Lee BOOK SWAP!
Get Ready for Summer Reading!
Do you have a book that you aren’t reading anymore? Would you like to trade it for some “new to you” summer reading? If so, please participate in our Summer Reading Book Swap!
When? Tuesday, June 16th. Classes will sign up to visit to the book swap
Where? The George Lee Library
Why? To get “new to you” reading material in your hands for summer!
How does it work? Bring a book or two (or as many as you want) that are in good condition. For each book you bring, you will be allowed to choose a book to take home. So if you bring 5 books, you can take home 5 books.
Please start bringing your books to school before Thursday, June 11th. Your teacher will record the number of books you brought! If you wish to bring more books than you want to take, the leftover books will be donated!
Thank you for participating in our Summer Reading Book Swap!
George Lee School is pleased to announce that we now have access to Mathletics. Mathletics is a web-based program that can be accessed using a computer or by downloading the Mathletics app for a tablet. Students have received a username and password to access their own personal account, that has interactive Math activities at their individual levels. The activities are curriculum based and can be used both inside and outside of the classroom. The benefits of students spending some extra time on Math practice can deepen their understanding and help to build skills, confidence and excitement about Math.
We would like to thank our amazing School Community Council who has providing the funding for our school to have access to such a wonderful program.
Please keep your username and password in a safe place. Mathletics is available to use all summer, so feel free to keep those Math skills sharp during the summer months. Students will have the same password for the duration of our Mathletics journey. This includes ALL of next year, thanks to our wonderful SCC. Have fun and enjoy this wonderful tool.
Please feel free to visit Ms. Hines and Ms. Irvine's classroom blogs to see some of the exciting things they are doing at George Lee.
