Week at a Glance

Hello Centennial Comets!

School Council Meeting- Monday, February 10
Our school council meeting that was scheduled for Monday, February 10 has been postponed.  Our next school council meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 2.

Literacy Week
This week, we will celebrate Literacy Week.  It is a great opportunity for students to participate in various activities that promote a love for books and reading.

Monday, February 10
Each class will decorate their doors with book cover templates that depict every student's favorite book.
Thursday, February 13
Students will participate in a school-wide book exchange, where they will be able to share their love and passion for a previously enjoyed book.  Students are encouraged to bring in a previously loved book that they are willing to exchange for another book.
Students are also encouraged to dress up as their favourite storybook character or to wear clothing that has words on it. 
Friday, February 14
Students will decorate a heart with a book that they have recently fallen in love with.  Hearts will be displayed in the front hallway. 
There will also be several daily activities that students can participate in.  We are looking forward to celebrating some of our favourite books and our passion for reading.

Scholastic Book Fair
We will be hosting the Scholastic Book Fair in our library this week and next week.  Students will have the opportunity to view books with their classes this Thursday and Friday.  Next week, students will have the opportunity to visit the book fair and purchase books.  If you send in money, for your child to purchase a book, we ask that you send it in a labeled envelope or labeled Ziploc bag.  We will also be offering time, after school, where students and parents can attend the book fair to purchase books.  We will share the date and time in next week’s Week at a Glance.
