Please ask your child about using their Agenda (Grades 1-8)

Our Eco Team is going strong. This week they are hosting a WalkBikeRoll Week. More information may be found https://bikewalkroll.org/ 

St Clement will rock the Rangers Rink!! All of the 100 Kitchener Rangers tickets have been sold.  Parents will be responsible for driving students to and from the Aud. A letter with details and tickets will be sent home.

If your child is in Grade 7 or 8 – we have a full-day field trip in the making for Friday, December 1st. We will not be back until approximately 6 p.m. More details to follow.

School Fundraising: Your opportunity to donate to the school fundraiser is available through Cash Online. Our goal is to raise $5000, which is about $20 per student. We are currently at $825. A special prize will be awarded to the class with the highest percentage of participants!!

Family-School Connections: When we surveyed families last year, there was an overwhelming desire for parents to know more about what children are learning in the classroom. All parents should be able to access their child(ren) D2L site. A memo from the school comes out each week. We update the website regularly and use an X account.

Sharing our learning: Our Grade 1-8 classes are following the WCDSB recommendation and implementing Mathology activities in each class. 

What is Mathology? Pearson Canada’s Mathology is a comprehensive classroom resource. Built on academic and classroom research for the diversity of Canadian classrooms, it is designed to unlock the joy in learning math by engaging students and teachers with materials that: help teachers gain a deeper understanding of student thinking and determine the next best steps; meet students and teachers where they are at in their math learning journey and build teacher capacity. 

What is Knowledgehook? Knowledgehook’s proprietary technology harnesses the power of data to track where students are on their math journey. Their solution connects a child’s in-school education to their at-home learning, providing real-time insights and expert-designed remediation tools to teachers on student learning gaps. This empowers teachers to develop an understanding of the math concepts related to their students’ challenges, enabling them to adjust instruction and monitor student progress.

As a staff, we collaboratively plan and discuss learning goals. Many of our teachers are seeking parent input and support around at-home work. You should expect this to transpire in the Junior and Intermediate grades. Items sent home often are the work that was not completed in class. At St Clement, teachers are also encouraging families to utilize the At Home Reading Program (Grades 1-3) and Knowledgehook Challenges (Grades 3-6). If you have any questions or suggestions please contact Mrs. MacDonald to further discuss.
