Needed Materials

Dear Parents,

Division 10 and Division 7 students (Ms. Anema’s class) will be working together on Friday. We are looking to gather some material for that day. I’ve already found quite a bit of supplies in my junk bins but I was wondering if you could help me collect the remaining items.

Here’s a Google Doc I created (click here). Please add your child’s name directly in the document if you can help us. Google Docs save automatically so you don’t need to worry about saving what you wrote.

Thank you in advance for your support!


Help Needed: Vancouver Art Gallery

Dear parents,

So far, only one parent has volunteered to come with us to the Vancouver Art Gallery next Tuesday. Please let me know if one of you can help. If I can’t find an additional volunteer, I will need to cancel this outing. 

All field trip information was included on the permission form sent to you last week.

If you can help, please add a comment to this blog post.

Thank you!


Drinking Tea


Good evening parents,

It’s been a while since my last post.

First, I would like to thank those of you who came last Thursday during our Meet the Teacher night. Being able to meet my students’ parents means a lot to me.

As the title of this post says it well, we will be drinking tea together, once a week. Under my supervision, two student helpers will be in charge of preparing and serving tea to others. All will be responsible to wash, rinse and dry their own cup.

If you are looking for ways to support us, I am currently looking for an extra kettle, some tea, as well as one more large teapot. Should you wish to donate tea to the class, please ensure that it is caffeine and nut free.

The sky was beautiful this evening. I hope you were able to appreciate the view as much as me!

Good night,


Beach Day Next Week

Dear parents,

I will need one more parent volunteer (Olga and Jodi are already helping) to accompany us to the beach next Tuesday. I know many of you responded “maybe” which is why I am posting it here instead.

Although many of you may want to join us, I am only looking for one more parent.

Please write a note in your child’s agenda to let me know if you are still willing to come. Do not respond to this message as I do not always think about looking here. I also don’t always get a notification.

I will reply to you on Thursday or Friday, at the latest, by writing a note in your child’s agenda.

Thank you!


P.S. If you’re already going with another class, I cannot count you as part of the Division 21 volunteer list. No need to let me know of it as I know one parent will come forward.
