New Spelling Words this week! Ask your child what group they are in. Spelling can be worked on at home in a variety of ways. Students can spell the words aloud to you, write them down, find them in books, create sentences with them, anything that gets them using the words in authentic ways.

Group 1: pup, bus, tub, but, I
Group 2: on, not, but, at, had, in, did, get, red, hot

We were able to roam around the school and check temperatures in different areas of the school. Some of our thermometers were not working, so we partnered up. We will do some more Science experiments about Hot and Cold in the coming weeks.

Ms. Yu and Ms. W are fitting into our class very well. We love having them here!!!

We had a new Star Student present today and tomorrow we will do some writing about him. Ask your child who the new Star Student is and one thing they learned about him today.

Parent Teacher Conferences are open for booking. Go to to book your appointment! If you are having any trouble, please let me know or call the school office to book an appointment.

Happy Remembrance Day

I hope you had a lovely Remembrance Day! Here is a video that my son loves!

Yesterday we had a beautiful Remembrance Day Ceremony! During a class discussion students had such amazing questions or comments regarding Remembrance Day. We learned about the Unknown Soldier and looked at many monuments around the world of the Unknown Soldiers.

We have had time this week to explore Raz Kids and Mathletics! Username and Passwords came home on a red card that has been laminated! We hope you are able to use these 2 programs with your child at home.

Scholastic Orders were due on Friday, but I'll still accept orders if they come in Monday. December order forms will come home soon, so we can get orders in and have them shipped before winter break. Also there will be a Scholastic Book Fair starting Tuesday, November 14th and going until 11:30am Friday, November 17th.

Our first week with Ms. Yu (student teacher from U of C) and Ms. W (EA practicum student from Red Deer College) have been great! We are going to learn so much from both of them.

See you all on Monday!

We are continuing to work on our goals for Reading, Math and a Personal goal. We will have those ready to discuss with you next week at Conferences.

Movember and Veteran's Food Bank

We are collecting food for the Veteran's Food Bank until November 10th. Please send in an item or two with your child and we will add it to the school's donation.

Beddington Heights is showing we care by running a Movember competition to bring awareness to and raise funds for prostate cancer research. Most of our male staff members will be growing a moustache for the month of November. Students may vote all month as often as they like for who they feel has the worst moustache. The cost is $1.00 per vote. $5.00 = 5 votes etc. Mavericks will be set up in the gym at lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays to collect votes. You may also give your vote to Mr. Sadowsky at any other time. All proceeds will be donated to the Movember foundation on behalf of Beddington Heights school. At the end of the month, the teacher with the most votes, therefore the worst moustache will come to work on December 1st with his hair dyed in a bright funky colour. If we raise $1,000.00 or more as a school, all the participants will dye their hair on December 1st.
Let's show everyone how much Beddington cares.
Thank you for your support!

Participants: Mr. Hebert, Mr. Weins, Mr. Sadowsky, Mr. Lancee, Mr. Mueller, Mr. Shackelton, Mr. Softley, Mr. Berry,
Mr. Mahon, Mr. Beechey, Mr. Jackson
