Proulx Newsletter 1/9-13/2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 16 of 37.  Remember, report cards come out Monday.  I think we all appreciate the "Snow Days" grace period!  This week we will put much effort into our Social Studies unit, with in-class research, and trading card project design-work!  After a week of Geography Bee Preliminary Competition days, I am sure students are looking forward to a great winter trimester, and a fun rest-of-the-year!

This is our first 5-day week of 2017--let's make it a great one!

Service Project:  We are looking at our schedule to plan our upcoming work with NWCO this trimester.  We will need much parent help (drivers/chaperones).  Be looking for dates/times, and the volunteer email to be sent in the coming weeks.

Looking ahead:
Jan 09 - Report cards emailed
Jan 16 - Egyptian Trading Card Research due
Jan 23 - Egyptian Trading Card Project due
Jan 25 - Proulx Chapel
