That's right, by popular demand, we have created a class Twitter account. We are "@7WPacers". Many students prefer this format to keep track of homework and other interesting things related to school. Please treat this social media format with respect. Thank you.

Our annual Aerobathon Fundraiser is set for November 9, 2012. By now, you should have seen a pink sheet come home with your child. Please use this sheet to help your child raise funds for this year's Aerobathon. This is our main fundraiser for the year. With the money we raise, we are able to subsidise our field trips so that you pay less, buy equipment, uniforms, and special items for our classrooms.
Soon we will be getting an iPad for our class due to our EcoSchools efforts last year. Wouldn't it be great if we had a data projector in our room? They cost about $300. That means we have to raise $600. Each class keeps half of what they make for their own spending while the rest is placed in the "community chest".
There are many great incentives for raising money. Ask your child about these and help us reach our school and classroom goals!
Thank you for your support!

First Month DownOur first month together as 7W brought a lot of changes. First, our division was "reorganized" which brought in an extra teacher and downsized our intermediate classrooms. This is a welcomed change and one that is extremely beneficial to your son/daughter. It means he/she will get more attention from the teacher. Then, 4 of 7W students moved to new schools. So our class got even smaller! Our current class size is about 20 students. We are all looking forward to this smaller "family" size and Ms. Walker is expecting great things from 7W this year.

Well, here we go. It is the beginning of another school year. I'd like to welcome our new grade 7 students to the Intermediate Division. I look forward to helping you learn this year. I also look forward to watching this year's grade 8 students become school leaders this year. Let's all MAKE this a good year.
