Wow! Where has January gone! We didn't have time to get the blues this year! Now with the rink up and running, the students have lots of opportunities to get on the ice. Mondays, Wednesdays(hockey) and Fridays are for Grades 4 and 5 during lunchtime. Grades 3 to 5 students can stay after school and skate until 4:30. Our class has several sessions during their gym class. Please refer to the schedule sent home. All these skating times are weather permitting. Later in February, we have the Croft Cup that promises to be an exciting day of hockey for both players and spectators. I also plan to have a sliding party a little later on in February. Date to be determined.So there is lots of winter left and I hope the students get out there and enjoy our wonderful Croft ressources!Have a great week everyone!

The schedule is being finalized and will be sent home shortly. The sliding hill is awesome and students have the opportunity to slide every day at recess time. A reminder that all these activities require winter gear including snowpants. Skaters need helmets and a face mask is strongly encouraged. Hope everyone plays safe and has fun!

     A month or so ago, we welcomed Bubbles our pet budgie. He was rather quiet but adjusted well to the classroom. We have teams of students that take care of his needs each day. We also take him out to visit us on our shoulders while we work.Last week, Bubbles had a play date with Sunny. Sunny spent the day with Bubbles and they had a great time swinging, playing, singing and cuddling. After Sunny returned home, Bubbles was very lonely and quiet. We realized that Bubbles needed a friend to keep him/her company, so we welcomed a new budgie that we have named Kiwi. They are very happy together. The students are very responsible with our new additions and I am pleased with their kindness towards our birds.We will surely enjoy them throughout the year. Here are some pics:
