Frenzy Friday

Hello parents and students, 

We are getting closer and closer to the concert and the holidays and boy, are we feeling it. Today, we practiced for the concert in full swing; getting our steps, talking about costumes and practicing our singing. It is getting super exciting and nerve racking. 

In math, we reviewed our 'Show your work' and I gave the students a chance to take home extra practice sheets. I am attaching the sheets on the bottom in the homework/reminder section. 


  • Math: Math test Monday 
  • Language: Finish your Percy Jackson project over the weekend, final checks on Monday 
  • UOI: Bring in field trip form and payment- last deadline December 21 or you may not attend the field trip 
  • Christmas concert practice (concert is Wednesday you must be there at 6:30pm)
  • Secret Santa due Dec 20
  • Please bring in door decoration/classroom decoration if you would like :) 

**Secret Santa – On Wednesday, most students in our class selected another student’s name for our class Secret Santa event. They will be bringing in a gift for them on December 20th.  The gift can be bought or made, but should not exceed $5.  The students are very excited to find out who their Secret Santa’s are!**

**Christmas Concert – The students at SJA are pleased to invite friends and parents to the SJA Christmas Concert!  The Grade 3-8 students will be performing on December 20th.  Hope to see you there!**

**A note from the Student Council:

Good evening parents and guardians.

The St. Jude's community places a lot of emphasis on giving and conducting acts of charity. In light of the Christmas season which is fast approaching, we are happy to announce that we collaborating with Peel Regional Police for their 'Toys for Tots' charity. We will be conducting a toy drive from December 7th to December 21st. Members of the St. Jude's community may donate new, unwrapped toys, cash or Canadian Tire money to make an underprivileged child's Christmas one to remember. All proceeds will be handed over directly to Peel Regional Police on December 21st. We are also pleased to announce the Toys for Tots charity is the first major project our Student Council will be conducting this academic year.

Toys can be donated at the front desk by placing them under the Christmas tree. There will be a tracking sheet provided to record the student who donated. Upon collecting the toys, a police officer will allow one lucky student to pie him/her in the face. As such, it is important to record the names of each student to give everyone a chance. Alternatively, toys may be handed to class teachers. To educate our PYP students about the importance of giving, house points will be awarded for each toy donated.

We look forward to your donations, all of which will be greatly appreciated.

Tis the season for joy, happiness, love, and sharing. Have a Merry Christmas!

Thank you.
