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.
Grade 1 Turtle-rrific Math Game Night
George Lee School is very excited about participating in a Ministry of Saskatchewan pilot program that called Help Me Talk About Math. This is a grade 1 math assessment that we are participating in this year. This is a pilot program that brings together young children and their families with educators, Elders and community members. The Help Me Talk About Math assessment will provide results to parents, teachers and Elders in order to help inform their action and learning intervention in the home, school and community. For more details about this new, holistic approach to assessment, visit www.holisticassessment.sk.ca.
We will be holding a Grade 1 Turtle-rrific Math Game Night on Thursday, February 5th. Grade 1 families with last names starting with A-K will visiting from 6:00 - 6:45 and families with last names starting with L-Z will visit from 7:00-7:45pm. You and your family will have the opportunity to explore math games and books directly connected to the curriculum based outcomes at a grade 1 level. You will also be able to enter your family for a prize draw to win a math board game.
