Our rescheduled pyjama day is finally coming! This Friday, January 13th, students are encouraged to wear their coziest pjs, bring a stuffy, and even wear slippers (optional). We will also be collecting tzedaka and new pairs of pyjamas to support the “Pyjama Patrol”.
This Friday, we are having a school-wide pyjama dress down day. It is wear-a-pair-bring-a-pair for Pyjama Patrol, see flyer below. In JK we will have a fun and cozy spa day, so bring your favourite bedtime story, a stuffy, and a pair of slippers (if you have! They are optional!)
In JK we’ve been very busy preparing for Chanukah!
We’ve been reading, crafting, singing, and practicing our lines and our dance for the Family Chanukah Celebration. We explored light with some of our translucent dreidels and other toys on our light table, and we had our third visit from our Grade 4 reading buddies! Keeping busy!
This morning we won a gift certificate for the Scholastic book fair! Woo hoo! We got to pick some books from our class wishlist and some bookmarks for each of us! Thank you!!

Shalom and Bonjour JK Families,
As you will notice, we have mentioned a ‘JK Toolbox‘ in your child’s report card. This is a static page on our blog, always accessible to you, and it is also a living document. This means that we may add, change, or remove resources, so please check back every now and then. There are links to resources and articles, and even to a JK recipe book that you and your child are encouraged to add to! We appreciate your feedback!
The JK Team
Next week, it is the annual OJCS Scholastic Book Fair!
JK will be visiting the Book Fair on Tuesday, December 6th and the kids will have a chance to buy some books. We sent home a flyer earlier in the week, and you can also check out the Virtual Book Fair Link with your child and pick a few options – it will give you a sense of how much money to send to school. We ask that you send your child’s money in a ziploc baggie with their name on it and the total amount you are sending. You can also send a list of preferred books with your child, though we cannot guarantee that every title will be available. If you would prefer to buy online, that’s also great, but please ensure that your child understands that they will not be buying a book at school (to avoid disappointment).
Parents are also welcome to visit the Book Fair! See the poster below for more information. The book fair will be open during Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday night from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, and Friday morning from 8:30 am until 12:00 pm.
