Hi folks!

Today a memo will head home with our plans for the next two weeks. Should any changes pop-up, I'll let you know.

Here are your reminders for the week:

MON: school-wide presentation, gym clothes

TUES: special meal form due for nacho dinner on Wed June 21, recorder

WED: recorder, walk to the library depending on weather

THURS: gym clothes

FRI: Field Trip to Hay Island (dress for the weather!!!)

All for now!

Posted: June 6, 2023

Hi folks!

A Field Trip memo went home today about our trip to Hay Island on Friday, June 16th. Please return the bottom half of the page and money in the coming days. We had planned a walk tomorrow to the library and another to the police station on Friday but it looks like rain may prevent our adventures. It's 98% likely we will have to reschedule for next week. There are a lot of activities planned for the end of the year. I plan to send home a calendar on Monday with dates etc.

We will be doing a rock project on Thursday. Students are asked to bring in a rock to paint. Not too big or too small please! I have a few extra but not enough for the entire class.

The cafeteria's special meal forms and money are due on Tuesday, June 13th. The meal will be on Wednesday, June 21st.

Lastly, our class is working towards a pj day (they love their pjs!), stuffie, movie afternoon! A little reward to help with the end of year push to stay motivated.

Our reminders:

WED: recorder, possible library card

THURS: gym clothes, a rock to paint

FRI: gym clothes, possible walking shoes


Don't forget to check out our class page with photos and videos of what we've been up to! Mme. Robichaud | King Street Elementary (

Congrats class!

Hi folks!

The school year is on fast forward! We are wrapping up many units! It's not a bad idea to keep a pair of gardening gloves or plastic gloves in their bookbags for various activities in the garden and the school grounds.

Grade 3 & 4: Mental Health

Grade 3: Math Bar graphs and then geometry shapes etc, writing about careers

Grade 4: Math graphing and pictographs and the 3d geometry etc, writing about rocks and minerals.


Any library books from the Chatham Public Library are due on May 31st. If you'd like to send them in to me, I don't mind dropping them off.


Our reminders for this week:

Mon: gym clothes needed

Tues: recorder needed, dress rehearsal for drama/choir students (until 5pm), assembly about Sistema, special memo!!! Principal for the Day rules!

Wed: recorder needed, school performance of Beauty and the Beast!

Thurs: gym clothes needed, clean-up day! with JMH student, Drama performance at night

Fri: gym clothes needed, Month-end Assembly, Drama performance at night


All for now!

Posted: May 25, 2023

Hi folks!

KSE drama students and choir members have been working hard to present BEAUTY AND THE BEST! The whole school will see the performance next week during the school day. Evening performances will be on Thursday, June 1st and Friday, June 2nd and tickets are required. A memo has already gone home with choir and drama members about this. Now, non-drama and non-choir students will have the chance to reserve tickets for the evening performance (if they want to see it a second time, or family members would like to attend).

It's sure to be a hit!

As always, any questions reach out.

Hi folks!

A long one today for such a short week.....

Report Cards & Parent Teacher - Report cards went home today. Please sign and return the necessary page. Parent-Teacher times for those that returned their page are written in your child's agenda, as well as a slip in the report card folder. There's a book order in there too. If you order online the code is RC198054.

New Units - We are beginning new writing units. Grade 3 will be focusing on healthy choices. Grade 4 will have an introduction and the human body (different body systems and body changes/puberty). In Math Grade 3 students will begin calendars and time. Grade 4 students are finishing up decimal numbers and then will move to calendars and time including the 24 hour clock and time duration.

Smoothie Challenge - if any family decides to try one of the smoothie recipes sent home today, please forward a picture for 5 points for the class!

Pictures - Please check out our class website for some fun pictures. Mme. Robichaud | King Street Elementary (

Speaking French - as we near the end of the year, expectations for speaking French are 100% of class time. If your child looses all their "batons", you will be notified. If it happens a second time, they loose recess minutes. 3x and more, they go to learning lunch. Hopefully it won't come to that!

Outside attire - The playground is soaking wet with melting snow. I'd suggest splash pants and rubber boots but we all know how kids are. I try my best to have them dressed properly as I would my own. With that being said, I strongly suggest extra socks and a change in clothes to be kept in their bookbag. Thanks in advance!

Regular reminders -

TUES: recorder

WED: recorder

THURS: gym clothes

FRIDAY: No school

All for now!
