Good Morning Cambridge!
Please take a moment to listen to our morning announcements.
The boys basketball team played a hard fought defensive game. They jumped out to an early lead with strong offensive play but were unable to hang on near the end. Final score T.E. Scott 26, Comets 10. Excellent work boys!
If any teacher knows of the location of the exercise bands, could you please return them to the equipment room so other classes can use them.
Library monitors for today are Ava and Sierra.
Vow of Silence at Cambridge – On Thursday, January 26th, the students of Division 4 (Ms. Burwash’s Grade 6 class) will be going silent for a day in solidarity with children who are denied their human rights and denied their voice. This day is called our Vow of Silence, which was started by Free the Children (organizers of We Day).
Parents – here’s what else you’ll want to know -
Huge thanks to the parents that joined us for the Sexual Health / Body Science parent presentation last night! We invite you to share your comments and feedback by clicking the “Comment” button at the bottom of the post. What did you think?
Year of the Dragon students – Our Grade 6′s were born in the year 2000. It’s their year! Huge thanks to Jake, one of our Grade 6 morning announcers, for the added info that the year 2000 was a Golden Dragon year as well – only happens once every 1000 years! Not only are these kids blessed with never having to do any math to calculate how old they are at any given time in their lives (how old were you when….? hmmm let me think…what year was it? that’s how old I was!), they’re also the coveted Y2K kids and they’re Golden Dragons! Good things to remind them of next time they harp about not getting recorder in Grade 4!
Vow of Silence – From what I understand, Division 4 has invited the other teachers/classes to participate in this day. It is up to each teacher to decide whether they will be participating. If you’re curious, please touch base with your child’s teacher. You can find more information on this movement on their website:
Community Opportunity – Teens for Jeans – Huge thanks to parent Julie for giving us the heads up on a great promotion that’s happening now at all Aeropostale stores! It’s a program called Teens for Jeans that runs until Feb. 12th. The store is collecting gently used and new jeans. The jeans will be donated to a homeless shelter in our local community. BONUS – when you bring your jeans to the Aeropostale store, you’ll get a 25% off coupon for a new pair of jeans! You’ll get one coupon for each pair of jeans you donate.
Given our recent Cambridge Cares Campaign, Mr. Winton has requested that we sit this one out as a school event. That being said, if you’ve got old jeans at home – this may be a fun way to donate them and help out your community as well. You can find more info on their website:
Thanks Cambridge and have a great rainy day!
